Financial Aid Support
Athletics 4 Kids
We grant up to $450 per child per year, supporting kids ages 5 to 18 years old. This funding can be distributed through multiples grants in the year to cover 40+ sports across the province. We provide a grant of $150 (or 80% of the registration fees) for 3 months of skating classes at a time.
Athletics 4 Kids’ philosophy is to introduce sports to children from age 5 onwards and help keep them active in sports all year-round so that they can develop the skills and confidence to foster positive social relations and build better communities in BC. With the global pandemic, it’s especially important now to get kids active in sports to help their self-esteem, confidence and overall mental well-being.
