KidSport Kneehill – Still here to help

KidSport Logo

It’s been a long journey since the COVID-19 Pandemic took us all by surprise back in March of 2020. Since then, sports have been more off than on, while the future still seems uncertain and we can’t be sure of what sports will look like this fall and winter, we want you to know KidSport Kneehill is still here to help.

The unusual circumstances of 2020 meant that only 8 kids were assisted for a total of $2,437.95. KidSport Kneehill was founded in 2002 and has assisted a total of 950 kids for a total of $136,061.75 in grant dollars. The sports funded have included: school sports, soccer, swimming, baseball, lacrosse, golf, sport camps, dance, karate, bowling, curling, hockey, figure skating, and fencing to name a few. The volunteer committee could not have accomplished this without the amazing community support we have received throughout the Kneehill area.

KidSport Kneehill believes all children should have the opportunity to participate in organized sports. To help make this possible, KidSport Kneehill provides support to children to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sports. As we move into the fall, please remember that school sports are also eligible for funding through this program, as well as the numerous organized sports offered in the community.
