The tournament is a charity event in support of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Warspite. The Cadet organization is a youth program for kids aged 12 – 18 that teaches kids about the Canadian military and its history, while also teaching discipline, citizenship, and leadership skills. With the program receiving funding from the Department of National Defence, it is free for kids to join. However, DND only covers the cost of the training, uniforms, and instructors. The other side of the funding comes from the Navy League of Canada. It is a group of civilian volunteers that are dedicated to supporting the cadet corps, covering things that DND does not such as rent and utilities for their training facility, food for weekends, transportation, etc. The proceeds from this tournament will be donated to the Kitchener – Waterloo branch of the Navy League.
