Giving Back (2019)
We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports. KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.
We do this by:
- Raising funds to provide sport opportunities for kids facing financial barriers.
- Promoting the KidSport mission to other community agencies with a view to creating strategic alliances to support sport participation and physical activity opportunities for kids.
- Advocating the importance of all kids having access to sport programs and advocate the value and benefit of kids playing sport in the pursuit of lifelong health and wellness.
We believe that through participation in organized sport activities, kids learn the values of:
- Team play and friendship
- Commitment to goals
- Personal excellence
- Healthy competition
- Self-esteem -Respect
