Does your child need equipment?

Let us know when you fill out the KidSport Application!

KidSport Edmonton will refer families who need equipment to Sport Central for a proper equipment fitting.

Note: If your child needs equipment, we recommend you apply for KidSport funding two months before the sport begins and once approved for KidSport funding, a referral to Sport Central is provided. However, if you need equipment immediately, call Sport Central to set up an appointment directly (780) 477-1166.

For families outside of Edmonton area, there are options available. If you live outside of Edmonton, a remote sizing kit can be sent to you and equipment shipment options are available through our trusted partner Rosenau Transport Ltd.
