KidSport Ontario


KidSport Ontario

Together with our network of 18 local chapters, KidSport Ontario provides grants to help cover the costs of enrolment so that all kids aged 18 and under in Ontario can play a season of sport.


To apply for a KidSport Ontario grant or learn more about the program details, start by finding your closest chapter. If your community doesn’t yet have a local chapter, your grant will come through the Provincial Fund.


“KidSport has given my daughters opportunities I couldn’t give them, and taught them real life skills I couldn’t teach them; confidence in public, friendship, teamwork and good sportsmanship.” - Parent


Granted to kids in Ontario last year.


Kids helped off the sidelines in Ontario last year.

By supporting KidSport we all win. When kids have access to sport they improve in school, become stronger leaders, create safer communities, ignite inclusivity and fuel healthy habits for life.
