Can't afford to register your child to play a sport? We might be able to help.
1 in 3 Canadian families cannot afford to enrol their children in sport or recreation activities. That means that many kids are missing out. All kids should have the chance to participate in a sport and on a team, so they have the opportunity to:
- Become physically active.
- Improve their self-esteem and self-confidence.
- Learn life-long skills.
- Improve their academic performance.
- Make new friends.
- Share and celebrate their culture.
There are programs across the Kenora-Rainy Districts that can help low-income families with sport and recreation costs for children and youth.
