Making a Difference In Communities Across Canada Presented to…District of ChetwyndCouncil

We Believe…

“that no kid should be left on the sidelines and every child should have the opportunity to play sports”

The KidSport Mission…

The goal of KidSport is to help under resourced families overcome financial barriers so that all kids have the opportunity to participate in organized sport.

KidSport Across the Nation…

  • Has a 20 year track record as a National organization

  • Is entrenched in all 10 provinces and 1 territory

  • Has established over 175 community chapters from coast to coast

  • More than 4000 local volunteers who ensure kids have access to sport in their community

  • A solid community network with sport clubs, public health, education, recreation, service and community groups: Boys & Girls Clubs,

  • YMCAs, etc.

KidSport Across BC

  • 40 community chapters

  • Over $1.2 million in grants in 2012 to over 6200 kids

  • Key provincial partners include Province of BC, CTV, Hyundai, NHLPA

The Need…

  • 1 in 3 Families can’t afford the cost of organized sport (StatsCan)

  • Many are missing out on the physical, social, and mental benefits associated with sport participation

  • Sport and physical activity have become a luxury that is only affordable for a fraction of Canadian kids

  • Last year KidSport allocated $2,575 to 10 kids in the Chetwynd area

Team KidSport Chetwynd Ambassador Deryk Engelland, defenseman for the Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey Club

“I am looking forward to giving back to the children in my community where my participation in minor hockey gave me a solid foundation to achieve my goals. I’m excited to show that with discipline, hard work and dedication, you too can achieve your dreams. I would like to thank all of my coaches in Chetwynd for helping me achieve my dreams.”
