Financial Support Available to Rope Skippers
Like other sports, the cost to participate in rope skipping is beyond the reach of some families. Clubs are encouraged to collaborate with their families to ensure that all children who want to participate in rope skipping can. Did you know that KidSport and Jumpstart both provide support to children in the sport of Rope Skipping?

Families are encouraged to consider the level of financial strain that sport puts on its income. While Jumpstart's national infrastructure helps it to reach as many Canadian's as possible, KidSport is able to consider other factors that are impacting a family's ability to pay. Both organizations have staff who are able to help with the application process.
KidS p ort believes that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sport. KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

KidSport is a national non-profit organization that provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport. KidSport provides financial assistance for registration fees and provides access to equipment for kids up to the age of 18.

KidSport Alberta proudly serves all communities in the province that do not have their own local KidSport chapter. A few of the communities served by community KidSport chapters are listed below. To check to see if your community has its own KidSport chapter, click here . Click on your community to learn more about how to apply for funding. If your community does not have a KidSport chapter, it will be covered by the KidSport Alberta Provincial Fund.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart
Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out. 

The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.

Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.
