Sports For Kids: Funding Guidelines

"Sports for Kids is responsible for identifying families and their children in financial need looking to participate in sports and recreational activities."


Our goal is to help those children that would not have been able to participate in a physical activity without the assistance of Sports for Kids.  Listed below are the general guidelines put in place for assistance through the Sports for Kids funding program.


Guidelines for Funding: 

  • Ages: 5 to 18

  • The program is designed to get children active. Any sport or recreation activity should include physical activity.

  • Funding up to $300 per child.

  • Funding goes to support the individual child whether or not they belong to a sport team.

  • Funding priority is for a sustained program that lasts a season.

  • Funding is available for members of the same family for the same season.

  • Open for children in the Greater Toronto Area and Mississauga.

  • Funding can be provided to the same child for successive seasons.

  • Priority given to entry level programs and first time participants.

  • Funding preference is to pay for registration fees.

Applications for assistance can be submitted from Jan. 15 – June 1 for spring/summer programs, and from July 1 – Nov. 15 for fall/winter programs. All approvals are the sole discretion of the local Sports for Kids personnel.
