KidSport is a children’s charity designed to assist youth ages five to 18 of families facing financial obstacles to participation in community sport programs.
KidSport believes that no kid should be left on the sidelines and that all youth should have the opportunity to benefit from organized sport. Through participation, youth can stay active, make friends and learn about teamwork, dedication, responsibility and more.
Together with its network of local chapters, KidSport provides grants to help cover the costs of enrolment So ALL Kids Can Play!
KidSport ambassadors are sporting role models who have embraced what it means to become a part of Team KidSport.
Ambassadors are leaders in the sport community and we are proud to have them on our team. Some are former KidSport recipients who know the value of giving back. Others are champions of sport and believe in the power of participation!

“I think its important that kids have the opportunity to play sports, for many reasons. It builds confidence, teamwork, and I kind of think it builds the next leaders of our towns and communities.”
