Apply for Assistance
KidSport Comox Valley has made some changes to our application process!
Before you start:
- Ensure you know what Sport Organization your child will join, the specific length of season, and the exact registration fee associated with the season (remember that we cover registration fees, NOT funding related to equipment, volunteering, fundraising or travel).
- Note that your most recent Notice of Assessment MUST be attached to your application form. We cannot process your electronic application without proof of income.
1) Apply Online:
To apply online, please click the Apply Online button below, to be directed to our new Online Application Platform. You will be required to set up a profile using your email address.

When you start your new application, please click to view Chapter by List and choose KidSport Comox Valley from the list of community chapters.
Your application can be saved at any time while you are filling it out. If you don't have all of the information requested you can save your application and continue to fill it out at a later day. Once you have completed all of the required fields you can submit your application.
Please note, the online application requires financial information / verification. Please have electronic copies (or photos) of your most recent Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Notice of Assessment ready to upload.

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.
