What is a Grant?

KidSport provides grants to kids from families facing financial barriers so they can participate in registered sport programs and experience the lifelong benefits of a season of sport. KidSport Manitoba South Region provides grants of up to $300 per eligible child, per year (January 1st - December 31st) towards sport registration fees.

KidSport grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees; camps, travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.

NEW: If your family's financial situation has been impacted due to COVID-19, please submit your most recent Notice of Assessment (2019) as well as verification that you have applied to, and received any of the following:

  • Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB)

  • Employment Insurance Benefits

  • Income Assistance or Indigenous Social Assistance

How Do I Apply?

  1. Find a sport program your kid would like to join and sign up. Let the program’s administrators know you will be applying for KidSport funding. The sport must have an active Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) within Sport Manitoba. If you are not sure if the sport you want to apply for has a PSO, please visit here for a list of current PSO’s.
  2. Click here to find your local KidSport Chapter.
  3. Apply online or use the paper application form - be sure to complete all sections of the application, as incomplete applications take much longer to process, and can cause delays in receiving your grant. 
  4. Your completed application will be processed within 30 days of being received. If you qualify for KidSport funding, the grant will be sent directly to the sport program your kid has signed up for.
