About Us

It has always been very important to me to give back to the community. Before relocating my business to BC in 2009 I was involved with a charity golf tournament for children for 15 years. It was always my goal to replicate that when the timing was right in BC.

In 2015 I met Rob & Ronnie from KidSport Surrey White Rock, I knew right away I’d found the right fit.

Thanks to all that attended our third tournament. We raised $72,000 this year. And in just 3 years we have now raised over $173,000 which we are very proud of.

The KidSport concept was hatched in 1993 by board and staff at Sport BC as a way to help address the challenges faced by many families when registering their children in organized sport. From a modest start in that first year, issuing $35,000 in grants, KidSport has grown exponentially across the country and has become a truly national entity with 11 provincial/territorial chapters and over 180 community based chapters.

From humble beginnings here in BC, KidSport issued $1.9 million in grants to 7800 kids in 2016 and has seen significant annual growth, particularly in the years subsequent to the 2010 Winter and Paralympic Games in Vancouver.

Our mission remains the same….to remove the financial barriers that prevent some children from playing organized sport!

Our vision…So ALL Kids Can Play!

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience the joys of a season of sport. Abundant research exists that proves sport participation enhances academic performance, improves health and develops valuable life skills in the areas of teamwork, socialization, goal setting and time management.

KidSport believes that it truly takes a village to raise a child and our 42 community chapters are driven by incredibly passionate volunteers who, together with sport clubs in their communities, have a shared ownership in ensuring that no child is left on the sidelines.
