X Movement, a Canadian youth wellness organization, originally began as Dragon’s Den winner AUSSIE X, a youth program that used Australian sports as a way to engage, educate and entertain children. Over more than a decade, X Movement has grown to offer a variety of movement-based activities, sports, and mindfulness exercises that have been used in over 3000 schools across Canada.
This summer, X Movement has partnered with the Hockey Hall of Fame, a not-for-profit charity and world-renowned organization dedicated to honouring and celebrating the game of hockey. While these two organizations originated from opposite ends of the globe, they share the same passion for sport, movement, mental wellness and fun.
Together, they’ve created X LEGENDS, a camp inspired by Canadian and Australian sports, with a goal to improve mental health & wellness among youth.
The X-Legend Camp explores what it means to be a LEGEND; to succeed through adversity, to have big dreams in life, and to lead others to do the same. The camp is said to “increase confidence and bring smiles and laughter” through Australian sports, creativity games, dance, martial arts, mindfulness activities, and loads of hockey-themed life lessons.
Weekly camps run Monday-Friday, July 11th-August 26th at the Hockey Hall of Fame’s D.K. Doc Seaman Resource Centre.

The display pays homage to the pioneers who confronted discrimination from the hockey world through their perseverance, talent, and courage. They have enriched the cultural landscape of hockey and established a tangible forum in which to fight prejudices still faced by many, both in hockey and in life.
The display makes its permanent home within the Hometown Hockey Zone.
