KidSportTM, a children's charitable program, was initially established in 1993 by Sport BC. The conception of KidSportTM 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. KidSportTM believes in the fundamental values and benefits that sport provides.
KidSportTM Canada was formed in 2005 and assists the Provincial/Territorial Chapters in raising funds as well as helping the organization build valuable public awareness.
KidSportTM provides children with:
- The opportunity to enjoy a season of children's sport programming;
- 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.
