About KidSport Manitoba
KidSport™ believes that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports. KidSport™ provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.
KidSport™ is about Kids…Success will be measured by the number of children who have been helped as a result of KidSport™’s initiatives.
KidSport™ is about Fun…The primary goal of children’s sport programming is that each child should have so much fun that they can’t wait to play again next season!
KidSport™ is about the Future…All kids should be given the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles, no matter the financial, physical or language barriers that may exist! Staying physically active helps encourage children to maintain healthy habits throughout their whole lives.
