All Kids Get A Chance To Play
KidSport™ Burnaby makes it possible for more children to participate in organized sports. Through the KidSport™ Burnaby Fund, money is raised and allocated to children and youth in the Burnaby community who would otherwise not be able to participate in sports due to financial reasons.
Making a difference in Burnaby.
With a generous donation from the Keith and Betty Beedie Foundation, KidSport™ Burnaby was launched in 2001. KidSport™ Burnaby has supported more than 2,100 Burnaby children - helping them to play a season of sport.
We believe that sport and physical activity provides a life long opportunity for self expression, goal setting, dedication, positive thinking and increased self confidence for kids. Grant applications are available for program registration fees accompanied by verification from a sponsor/teacher/counsellor. A committee adjudicates the applications and awards up to $200 per applicant per year to assist the child to participate in a season of sport. Application forms are also available at Burnaby schools, Burnaby Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services community centres, sport organizations and online.
