About Kidsport BC
From humble beginnings here in BC, KidSport issued nearly $1.66 million in grants to just over 7,448 kids in 2014 and has seen significant annual growth, particularly in the years subsequent to the 2010 Winter and Paralympic Games in Vancouver.
Our mission remains the same….to remove the financial barriers that prevent some children from playing organized sport!
Our vision…SO ALL KIDS CAN PLAY!
We believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience the joys of a season of sport. Abundant research exists that proves sport participation enhances academic performance, improves health and develops valuable life skills in the areas of teamwork, socialization, goal setting and time management.
KidSport believes that it truly takes a village to raise a child and our 41 community chapters are driven by incredibly passionate volunteers who, together with sport clubs in their communities, have a shared ownership in ensuring that no child is left on the sidelines.
