KidSport Calgary and Area provides financial support to families in order to help overcome the monetary barriers that prevent some children from participating in organized sport.
Focusing on the economic, social and educational needs of the community, KidSport Calgary and Area promotes sport as a tool to develop strong and healthy communities.
Since its inception in 1995, KidSport Calgary has NEVER denied support for a qualified applicant in the communities we service which include Calgary, Airdrie, Chestermere, Cochrane, Strathmore, High River, Black Diamond, Turner Valley and any other communities falling within a 50km radius of Calgary.
That translates into KidSport Calgary distributing over $6.6 million to help over 29,000 young athletes play in more than 50 different organized sport activities over the past 19.5 years.
KidSport Calgary is the largest KidSport Chapter in Canada, from amongst 180 chapters in communities across the country, in terms of funds distributed and kids helped. This speaks to the generosity of Calgarians but also to the value that Calgarians place on sport and children and youth development. It also speaks to the need that many area residents have for our program, and that need continues to grow so we are grateful that our donors, partners and friends continue to support us as we strive to help more qualified kids each and every year
