KidSport™, a children's charitable program, was initially established in 1993 by Sport BC. The conception of KidSport™ was due to recognition that barriers including the rising costs for sport registration fees and equipment were negatively affecting children's participation in sport, especially kids from challenging backgrounds. KidSport™ believes in the fundamental values and benefits that sport provides.
KidSport™ Canada was formed in 2005 and assists the Provincial/Territorial Chapters in raising funds as well as helping the organization build valuable public awareness.
KidSport™ provides children with:
• The opportunity to enjoy a season of children’s sport
• Healthy habits that will last their whole lives;
• Valuable life lessons and skills including leadership,
practice, hard work, dedication, and self confidence;
• Access to mentorship and guidance from coaches.
