KidSport

Changes to KidSport (September – December) 2020

The importance of sport and recreation became clearer as we saw the loss of programming due to COVID-19 back in March.  Slowly, thanks to the efforts of all Islanders, we have all started taking the steps to our new normal.

We believe in the power of sport, and now more than ever it’s important to ensure Island youth get the opportunity to participate in organized sport.  Kids need sport and for the low income families that need is even greater.

Effective September 16th to December 31st, 2020, the criteria will be as follows:

Number of Children Net Annual Family Income
1 $40,000 or less
2 $42,000 or less
3 $44,000 or less
4 $46,000 or less
More than 4 Add $2000 for each additional child

Additionally, the grant per child will be increased from $300 to $400.
