what is the Oil Country Hockey Assist Program?
The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation and KidSport Alberta have teamed up AGAIN to launch the second season of the KidSport Oil Country Hockey Assist Program (HAP)!
Approved applicants within Oil Country will have their full registration fees* covered and have access to no-cost equipment from Sport Central.
*Full registration fees, up to $3,000 will be covered for eligible families*
In the 2022/23 hockey season, we funded over 1,400 kids into hockey and we are excited to grow that number for the 2023/24 hockey season!
HOW DO I APPLY?
In order to apply for the KidSport Oil Country Hockey Assist Program, first register with your local hockey association.
