UNLEASHING THE POWER OF
1 Million Kids
From after-school soccer stars to Olympic Champions, the story of sport is the story of Canada. Since 1993, KidSport has helped nearly 1 million kids experience the joy of organized sport, and in return, sport has created all kinds of positive change for Canadians.
Increases success in school
More physical activity equals more focus, motivation, and energy to succeed in school and reach post-secondary education.
When kids take part in sport, they practice teamwork and collaboration and build the confidence to become leaders.
Creates Safer Communities
Kids who participate in organized sport are less likely to be involved in crime, which helps keep our communities safer for ALL.
Sport equips kids with a sense of belonging and teaches them how to include others. These skills build more inclusive schools, homes, and the communities at large.
Fuels Healthy Habits
Participating in sport helps kids stay active and helps them form healthy habits that last a lifetime, reducing the burden on our healthcare system.
Improves Mental Health
Physical activity and sport participation among children and youth has a positive impact on overall mental health and wellbeing.
