Financial Support

Need Financial Assistance? Maybe KidSport Calgary can Help

Do you need financial assistance for sport registration fees?

It is the goal of KidSport Calgary to provide positive sport opportunities to children and families that are in need or in low-income situations. KidSport Calgary strives to overcome the financial obstacles that prevent some young people from experiencing the positive impact of sport. Giving young people the opportunity to choose the sport that has the most value to them allows KidSport Calgary to promote a greater sense of belonging, personal involvement and improved self esteem.

Due to the overwhelming demand for assistance the maximum amount of assistance from KidSport for the 2018/19 season will be capped at $375.00 per application.  You will be contacted by Bow River's Treasurer to arrange how your outstanding registration fees will be paid.
