The KidSport concept was launched in 1993 by board and staff at Sport BC as a way to help address the challenges faced by many families when registering their children in organized sport. From a modest start in that first year, issuing $35,000 in grants, KidSport has grown exponentially across the country and has become a truly national entity with 11 provincial/territorial chapters and over 180 community based chapters.
From humble beginnings here in BC, KidSport issued $1.95 million in grants to 7300 kids in 2017 and has seen significant annual growth, particularly in the years subsequent to the 2010 Winter and Paralympic Games in Vancouver.
Our mission remains the same….to remove the financial barriers that prevent some children from playing organized sport! Our vision…#SoALLKidsCanPlay!
