KidSport

KidSport Kitimat so all kids can playKidSport™ was founded in 1993 in Vancouver, BC. The organization's main goal was and still is to provide opportunity for kids to play sports who otherwise could not afford to do so. KidSport™ Canada was incorporated in 2005 and now has provincial chapters across the country. In 2009 KidSport™ Canada helped 60,000 kids take part in a sport of their choice. KidSport™ Kitimat is one of the 38 chapters in BC.

Establishing KidSport™ Kitimat has meant that all funds raised locally now stay in Kitimat and give our friend's and neighbour's children opportunities to play sport. KidSport™ Kitimat would like to raise enough money over time to make the fund self-supporting year after year. To-date KidSport™ Kitimat BC has granted upwards of $1,500 annually to support youth in Kitimat.

  • Learn life-long skills
  • Improve academic performance
  • Make new friends
  • Share and celebrate their culture
