About KidSport Edmonton
More and more Edmonton 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.
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 sports. KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.
We do this by:
- Raising funds to provide sport opportunities for kids facing financial barriers.
- Promoting the KidSport mission to other community agencies with a view to creating strategic alliances to support sport participation and physical activity opportunities for kids.
- Advocating the importance of all kids having access to sport programs and advocate the value and benefit of kids playing sport in the pursuit of lifelong health and wellness.
We believe that through participation in organized sport activities, kids learn the values of:
- Team play and friendship
- Commitment to goals
- Personal excellence
- Healthy competition
Thanks to the support of generous donors and partners, in 2013 KidSport Edmonton helped 1,323 kids across 36 different sports and distributed more than $166,500 towards sport registration fees. The need for KidSport is greater than ever. Your support ensures that no child is ever denied the opportunity to enjoy a season of sport.
