“Sport has helped me in so many ways throughout my entire life. From keeping me active and healthy to giving me a platform to have fun and meet new friends. It has also helped me develop as an individual by teaching me life skills that are so useful outside of sport. I cannot say enough about the role sport plays in the development of our youth today, and this is what drew me to KidSport in the beginning. KidSport gives kids an opportunity to be involved in sport who otherwise would not have that opportunity, and that is something that I had to be a part of!” – Harry Jones
