Kauth, along with such as Allyson Fox, Kim McCullough, along with national team members Sami Jo Small and Jennifer Botterill spearheaded an initiative to form the Canadian Women's Hockey League. The players worked with a group of volunteer business people to form the CWHL by following the example of the National Lacrosse League. The league would be responsible for all travel, ice rental and uniform costs, plus some equipment.

Both have also served on the coaching staff for the Toronto Lady Blues women's ice hockey program under head coach Vicky Sunohara.
