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 $150 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.
Shoe Bank Program
Free atheletic shoes may be available for Burnaby youth who have financial need through our Shoe Bank Program. Application forms are available online and at local Burnaby schools. (Shoe sizes are limited)
