FINANCIAL AID 


KidSport is a community based sport-funding program established in 1993 by Sport BC providing grants for children ages 18 and under to participate in sport. There are 41 community chapters in BC and over 175 chapters across Canada.  The Prince George KidSport committee was formed to ensure that money raised in our community, stays in our community so all Prince George ‘Kids Can Play!’.
