The Kidsport Fund is the charitable arm of Sport BC that was designed to remove the financial obstacles that prevent some children from playing sports. Grants to INDIVIDUAL ATHLETES are given to children whose families cannot afford sport registration fees and would otherwise not be able to participate in a season of sport.
Canadian Tire Jump Start is a community-based charitable program that helps kids in need participate in organized sports and recreational activities like dance, soccer, hockey and swimming.
Since its launch in February 2005, Canadian Tire Jumpstart has helped give more than 160000 kids in financial need the chance to play.

All across BC, hundreds of children and youth are denied the opportunity to participate in amateur sports due to one simple fact: lack of funds.
As a privately funded charity, we are able to get dollars into the hands of those who need it most, quickly and effectively. We help families bear the expense of having their children participate in organized sports because we believe that all kids should have the chance to play.
The support of A4K is available province-wide for children ages 5 to 18 who are currently enrolled in school. Basic registration fees are paid for a multitude of approved sports, up to an annual maximum of $350 per child (which is considerably higher than other sport funding charities).
