The Kamloops chapter of KidSport is thriving, thanks to a very strong board and truly amazing financial support from the community.
KidSport provides families with children aged 5–18 years with financial assistance to participate in sports in Kamloops. Funds raised locally are distributed as grants that can be used to cover the cost of uniforms, equipment, and registration fees and remove the financial barriers that otherwise prohibit a child from playing sports.
Based on trending fundraising success, KidSport Kamloops has decided to:
- expand its geographic reach to include all municipalities within School District No. 73
- increase its maximum annual grant amount to $550 per child, per year
- strengthen its relationship with School District No. 73 to support school sports programs
- improve accessibility to applicants via its online application process
The City of Kamloops is a proud supporter of KidSport and is proud of its success in keeping kids in sport.
