KidSport™ is a community-based sport funding program that provides grants for children under the age of 18 to participate in a sport season of their choice.
The cost of organized sports can be a barrier to participation and limit the choices for some families. KidSport™ works to fulfill its mission of eliminating the financial barriers to sport participation, “So ALL Kids Can Play!” Kids have the opportunity to reach their highest potential when they have access to physical activity, which can positively impact physical health, development of social skills, self-esteem, and friendships.
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. As a result, KidSport Comox Valley awards grants up to $300 per year to Comox Valley children wanting to enroll in a sports program.
To be eligible for KidSport funding the sport organization that the child participates in must be a member of Sport BC’s through a Provincial Sport Organization.
