Financial Assistance for Participants in Organized Sports

KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized 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.

Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate.

Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.
