Sydney began playing hockey in BCH and the West Huron Wave Minor Hockey organizations. The rest of her minor hockey was played with the London Devilettes AA and Cambridge Roadrunners AA, before playing with the Bluewater Hawks in the former PWHL (now OWHL).
Most recently, in 2021, Sydney moved to St. Charles Missouri, to play NCAA Division 1 hockey at Lindenwood University. Sydney is currently studying Exercise Science (B.S.) with a minor in coaching.
