About KidSport Alberta

More and more kids are becoming team players every day. They're given the opportunity to swing a bat, shoot a puck, or smash a ball for happier, healthier lives thanks to KidSport™ and its local sponsors and volunteers. KidSport™ welcomes all new applications and donations so you can be a part of our team.

Mission Statement

We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sport. KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

KidSport is a national non-profit organization that provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport. KidSport provides financial assistance for registration fees and provides access to equipment for kids up to the age of 18.

KidSport Is About Kids…Success will be measured by the number of children who have been helped as a result of KidSport’s initiatives.

KidSport Is About Fun…The primary goal of children’s sport programming is that each child should have so much fun that they can’t wait to play again next season!

KidSport Is About the Future…All kids should be given the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles, no matter the financial, physical or language barriers that may exist. Staying physically active helps encourage children to maintain healthy habits throughout their whole lives. The challenges that come with playing sports also teach children valuable life lessons and skills including leadership, practice, hard work, dedication and self-confidence.

This Is How It’s Done…

  • Raising funds to provide sport opportunities for kids facing financial barriers.
  • Promoting the KidSport mission to other communities with a view to create strategic alliances to support sport participation and physical opportunities for kids.
  • Advocating the importance of all kids having access to sport programs and supporting the value and benefit of kids playing sport in the pursuit of lifelong health and wellness.

KidSport believes that through participation in organized sports, kids learn the important values of:

  • Co-operation
  • Team play and friendship
  • Commitment to goals
  • Personal excellence
  • Healthy competition
  • Self-esteem
