About Kidsport Saskatoon
KidSport is a children’s charity which assists children of families facing financial obstacles to participate in community sport programs so that all kids can play. The goal of KidSport is to provide these children with the opportunity to achieve physical, social, intellectual and moral development through participation in sport. If all children have the opportunity to play, learn self-respect, gain self-confidence, adopt active and healthy lifestyles, and realize dreams through sport, then these children may have a better chance of becoming contributing members and leaders in our communities.
We believe 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 and youth to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport. All fundraising proceeds and donations are directly allocated to support eligible children and youth or programs.
All children and youth in Saskatchewan have the opportunity to experience the benefits of organized sport through participation.
- All children and youth deserve the opportunity to participate in organized sport.
- The interests and needs of KidSport kids are the paramount concern of the program.
- Communities are the best means to deliver the program through a volunteer mechanism.
