|Description & Services|
KidSport is a national not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids aged 18 and under.
Through a confidential application process we provide grants so they can play a season of sport.
Nationally, KidSport is comprised of a network of 11 provincial/territorial KidSport chapters and 178 community KidSport chapters.
Since its creation in 1993, over 450,000 kids across the country have been given the chance to play sport through KidSport grants and sport introduction programming.
We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports. KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.
Benefits to the Community:
KidSport believes in the values and benefits of kids playing organized sport and we know that sport will provide them with the opportunity to:
- Become physically active
- Improve their self-esteem and self-confidence
- Learn life-long skills
- Improve their academic performance
- Make new friends
- Share and celebrate their culture
- Contribute to a strong, healthy community
