Celebrating and Promoting Excellence in Sport from the Leaside Community in Toronto

2020 Induction Ceremony Update

Thank you to everyone who nominated some very worthy candidates for induction into the Leaside Sports Hall of Fame for 2020. Selection of inductees has taken place, however because of the current COVID 19 situation and the limitation of numbers allowed at gatherings, we have made the decision to postpone our traditional Mid-November Induction Ceremony and Community Reception until we can properly recognize and celebrate the talents of the inductees.

We will announce plans for the induction of the 2020 inductees at a later date.

The following will be inducted into the Leaside Sports Hall of Fame for 2020
