Apply for Assistance

KidSport Nelson 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. Once you have registered your email, a verification message will be sent to your account, and will include your temporary password. You can change your password when you login for the first time.

When you start your new application, please click to view Chapter by List and choose KidSport Nelson 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.

We generally accept applications for children 18 years and younger who are participating at an eligible sport organization (must be a member in good standing of their relevant Provincial Sport Organization), and who meet our income eligibility guidelines, as below.

2) Apply using a Paper Form:

If you do not have access to your financial information or wish to submit a paper application form, please download and complete our paper application below. You will require a Financial Endorser to verify that without KidSport assistance, your child(ren) will not be able to participate in a season of sport. Please refer to the application form for details on who can be an Endorser. Once the application form is completed, it may be sent to KidSport Nelson by email to nelsonkidsport@gmail.com or by mail to KidSport Nelson, Box 12, Nelson, V1L 5P7, or in person at 608B Lake Street, Nelson, BC V1L 4C8.
