KidSport Calgary is happy to work with the following sport and foundation partners to help more kids get off the sideline and into the game.
Comrie’s Sports Equipment Bank
The Southern Alberta Sports Equipment Bank Society is a not-for-profit organization that oversees Comrie’s Sports Equipment Bank. Together with KidSport, Comrie's Sports Equipment Bank assists us in ensuring all qualified KidSport kids playing hockey have access to no cost gently used equipment so qualified kids and their families can look to the game of hockey as a great sports choice.

Working hard with KidSport Calgary to get more kids playing soccer, Calgary Minor Soccer has built an amazing program that sees each team give back to help ensure under-resourced families and their kids have the chance to play soccer here in Calgary. This partnership is clearly working as we were able to fund over 1450 kids through KidSport Calgary into organized soccer in 2015. Thank you Calgary Minor Soccer for your leadership and amazing partnership in helping us make it "So ALL Kids Can Play!"http://calgaryminorsoccer.com/

KidSport Calgary is a proud partner of Winsport, together we have been able to support hundreds of KidSport kids through Winsport programs. We look forward to growing this number as more kids get to experience the great facilities and programs at Winsport.
Hockey Canada Foundation
As a legacy of the 2012 Hockey Canada Foundation celebration dinner held here in Calgary we are proud to partner with the Hockey Canada Foundation for the next five years as we work to get more kids on the ice and playing the great sport of hockey. We are working to break down the barriers of cost that are keeping families from playing hockey. Through KidSport registration fee grants and our partnership with Comrie's Sports Equipment Bank we believe we are well on our way to doing just that.

ULS Maintenance & Landscaping Inc.
ULS Maintenance & Landscaping Inc. was founded in 1989 by three members of the University of Calgary Dinos hockey team. ULS has built itself on the core values learned through sport to become a thriving landscape management firm serving Alberta and Saskatchewan. KidSport Calgary would not be able to run our Skate Shack program without the heart and generosity of the team at ULS. The shacks are a free service for schools and associations that provide the opportunity for youth in our City to develop a love of skating and other sports while taking away the financial burden that prevents 1 in 3 Canadian families from getting their kids off the sidelines and into the game. This is a strong partnership that has been in action for over a decade and has touched the lives of over 30,000 youth in our community.

Once enough points are accumulated, these companies can them use them to redeem a donation in the amount of $25 or $50 to KidSport Calgary. Check them out here:http://rmcp.ca/
Active Sports Therapy
Active Sports Therapy is committed to helping people Get Back to Their Game by offering as Calgary’s premiere full-service sports injury health centre dedicated to the treatment and prevention of activity related joint and soft tissue conditions. Injuries are often part of playing sports and we know that additional treatment such as physiotherapy, active release techniques, or chiropractic can have an effect on the recovery process, on restoring functionality to the affected area, and on prevention of future injuries.
That’s why we’ve created the Active Sports Therapy Bursary. We know that not every family is fortunate enough to have enough extended health benefits, and that the road to recovery can lead to unexpected expenses. The group of therapists at Active Sports Therapy are pleased to be offering 2 x $1,000 bursaries in the form of clinic credit to two individual KidSport athletes on a yearly basis who have experienced an injury that requires special attention. http://www.activesportstherapy.ca/
In Canada, only 10% of the adult population gets the daily recommended amount of physical activity. PlayCity helps to connect adults to others who want to be active too. Browse real people in your area, within the same skill level and invite them to go play! Play isn't just for kids, adults need to have fun too! Learn more at www.playcityapp.com
