ABOUT

KidSport Williams Lake

We provide grants to help cover the costs of registration fees so that all kids aged 18 and under in Williams Lake can play a season of sport.

 

Our chapter accepts applications and administers grants of up to $200 per child/year, for kids who live in Williams Lake, or in one of the other communities we serve. If you live outside of Williams Lake please contact the Provincial Office to find your nearest chapter, or to get support through the Provincial Fund.

IMPACT REPORTS

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic local sport organizations saw a considerable decrease in the number of athletes enrolled in sport programs.  As such, our funding needs in 2020 were down 60% from previous years.  With the development of vaccines it is our hope that Williams Lake sport organizations will be able to resume more normal activities in the Fall of 2021, and KidSport Williams Lake is ready to accept applications to support this growth.

OUR Team

KidSport Williams Lake is made possible thanks to passionate volunteers and our incredible partners. Together we’re making it so no child in Williams Lake is left watching from the sidelines.

Rick Miller
Chairperson

I am so honoured to be able to part of the KidSport Williams Lake Chapter!  I've been an active athlete all my life and was a PE educator for over 35 years.  From these experiences I know how important it is for children to be active and I've personally witnessed the need for financial help that exists in our community.  Being involved in KidSport William Lake gives me the opportunity to help families ensure their children stay active, healthy, and involved, which is so important to developing positive healthy living habits.  It's also so gratifying to see that our community actively supports these same goals and gives so generously to the KidSport Williams Lake Chapter.  I speak for all of our wonderful volunteers when I say "Thank-you" to our community, and good luck to our youth in your sport activities!
