KidSport™ British Columbia

How To Apply

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. 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.

 

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. In recent months we have received higher than normal amount of grant application requests. To help manage the increased demand and to ensure fair distribution of funding, the following screening criteria will now be applied:

 

  • First time applicants will receive priority for granting funding.
  • Returning applicants will be considered on a monthly basis, as funding permits.
  • Applications currently on file will be processed as funding permits.
  • Unsuccessful applicants will be notified as quickly as possible.
  • A maximum of 30% of available funds each month will be distributed to any one sport.
  • To be eligible for funding, the sport organization the child participates in must be a member of Sport BC's, through one of their Provincial Sport Organizations. To see a list of Provincial Sport Organizations click here.

Thank you for your understanding of the new screening criteria, "So ALL Kids Can Play!
