What is the KidSport Back to Sport Project?

Amateur sport has returned to Alberta, as part of Stage 2 of Alberta’s economic relaunch, and KidSport is here to help. The pandemic has significantly impacted the lives of all youth in Alberta, and sport will be an important part of their physical and mental recovery. KidSport provides funding so all kids can play, and the dollars raised in the Back to Sport Project will ensure no kid is left behind during COVID-19 recovery.

The Back to Sport project aims to recover the over $1.5 million in revenue KidSport chapters across the province have lost since March due to cancelled fundraising events. These funds will allow KidSport to give the gift of sport to over 6,000 kids, ensuring that they can once again experience the lifelong benefits of organized sport. These funds will also give a much needed boost to our local sports economy which has also suffered greatly during the last few months.  The funds are directed back into local sport clubs in the form of much needed registration fees which allow these programs to operate while also giving KidSport kids a place to play!

Albertans have experienced significant economic hardship over the last four months, and as a result KidSport’s 37 chapters are all anticipating increased demand for fee assistance, as more families than ever are eligible to receive funds from their local chapter.

Individuals and corporations are asked to donate to their local KidSport chapter, to assist their community’s COVID-19 recovery. All dollars raised in a community stay local, as funds are distributed by community staff and volunteers to local kids. Individual support for the Back to Sport campaign starts at just $10/ month, and corporate support of all forms is welcomed at KidSport is an RCAAA and qualified donee as per the CRA, so all eligible donations will receive tax receipts.

KidSport provides funding for families to overcome financial barriers to organized sport. Sport keeps kids healthy - both physically and mentally - and teaches the life skills they need to become successful, productive adults.
