About Kidsport Kitimat

KidSport Kitimat is a not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance for sport registration fees to kids aged 18 and under. Through a confidential application process, we provide grants so kids can play a season of sport. Our primary goal is to financially support local youth who would not otherwise have the opportunity to take part in sports.

KidSport was founded in1993 in Vancouver, BC whose main goal was and still is to provide an opportunity for kids to play sports who otherwise could not afford to do so.  KidSport Canada was incorporated in 2005 and now has provincial chapters across Canada.  In 2009 KidSport helped 60,000 kids take part in the sport of their choice.

KidSport Kitimat is one of the 38 chapters across BC. 

With the start up of KidSport Kitimat in 2008 all monies raised locally will stay in Kitimat, giving our friends’ and neighbours’ children opportunities to play sports.  The goal of KidSport Kitimat is to raise enough money over time for the fund to be self-supporting year after year.  In any given year, KidSport Kitimat  grants upwards of $2500 towards supporting youth in Kitimat.
