At KidSport™ we believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of sport. KidSport™ provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing.
Through the KidSport™ Grant Program financial support for registration fees and/or equipment grants go directly to the families in need. It is through KidSport™ that children who are the least likely to have the opportunity to play now have hope and opportunity.
KidSport™ was established in 1993 from an identified need by leaders in the sport community who witnessed too many children on the sidelines because of financial barriers. Since then, KidSport is going strong throughout Canada with over 175 local community volunteer chapters in 11 provinces and territories. The KidSport™ program was introduced to Ontario in 2000 by Sport Alliance Ontario. KidSport™ Ontario has 23 local community chapters servicing thousands of kids across the province annually.
