Sticks Together: Every Kid Deserves to Play

Sarah Thompson joined CARHA Hockey as the Community Programs Intern for the summer of 2021. The Ottawa native is in her second year at Syracuse University and plays for the NCAA DI hockey team.

We are so excited for Sarah, who started a project, Sticks Together, to bring the sport of hockey to underprivileged communities around the world. In May of 2022, she will be bringing recycled hockey sticks and street hockey equipment to the children in Recoleta, Argentina. For this humanitarian initiative, she has partnered up with the IVHQ Sport Development Program and with Play It Again Sports. To support, you can visit any Play It Again Sports location in Ottawa (Orleans, Kanata, Nepean) during the month of January to donate any hockey sticks and other sporting equipment you no longer use. You can also support Sarah’s project through an online donation at
