In a joint effort with Warrior Wizard Hockey, LGS Hockey continues to expand its LEGACY Fights Cancer series not just in popularity and growth but also in its efforts to raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS). Over the past five years, more than $85,000 have been raised for the ACS with each year elevating the bar to new heights. A portion of each team’s entry fee goes directly to the ACS as well as a tournament-wide effort through Coaches vs. Cancer, where teams can compete against one another off the ice to see who can raise the most money.
One of our fastest growing series, the LEGACY Fights Cancer-Detroit event has become a focal point in the Midwest spring hockey calendar. In 2019, the series continues to expand as the Detroit event will take place over two consecutive weekends at the end of April and beginning of May. First, the boys ‘05 through ‘12 age groups and girls’ U-19 through U-12 age groups will occupy four rinks in the metro-Detroit area on April 26-28th with the boys’ U-18, U-16 and U-15 age groups the following weekend in three different arenas on May 3-5th.
This USA Hockey sanctioned event comes with a four-game guarantee and games are slated to begin on the Friday morning of both weekends, concluding no later than 4pm on respective Sundays.
