The primary goal of all children’s sport programming is for each child to have fun and to want to play again next season. Children should feel there will always be a place for sport in their lives and that sport will always have a place for them. The KidSport Program has been created to help overcome financial obstacles preventing some young people from participating in organized sport.
KidSport identifies needs in the community, raises funds, and supports programs that create new opportunities for young people “So All Kids Can Play.”
Young people can learn more than athletic skills from sport. Sport provides a lifelong opportunity for self-expression and self-discovery. Sport challenges can teach children the value of leadership, desire, planning, practice, hard work, honesty, sacrifice, dedication, positive thinking and self-confidence. Sport emphasizes exercise, commitment, discipline, and conditioning, and can start children on the path to a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle begun at a young age can last a lifetime and benefit not only the child but the rest of the community.
Child poverty is on the rise making it difficult for many children to access sport. As well, Statistics Canada has recently reported an alarming decline in participation rates of organized sport in large part due to the cost. Ensuring that children have access to sport, and the values and skills that sport teaches, is more critical than ever.
KidSport helps provide children up to the age of eighteen access to sport opportunities and experiences in both team and individual sports “So All Kids Can Play.”
KidSport is a non-profit organization that is part of a national and provincial network of community based volunteer groups whose goal is to ensure that kids in financial need have access to the positive experience of sport and physical activity. We believe that sport and physical activity provides a life-long opportunity for self-expression, goal setting, dedication, positive thinking and increased self confidence for kids.
