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 they provide grants so they can play a season of sport. They 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.

Nationally, KidSport provides support and resources to a network of 178 provincial/territorial and community chapters.  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
