What is Sport Central?

Sport Central is a non-profit organization in Alberta that gathers, recycles, and distributes sport equipment to kids at no cost to ensure no youth miss out on sports due to lack of gear. KidSport Saskatoon partnered with Sport Central to distribute equipment to kids in Saskatchewan. Thanks again to Sport Central for their generous shipment of equipment!
