Please read information below as changes have been made to the JUMPSTART program.
When families need a little financial boost to get kids involved in a sport, dance team or other active program, they need to fill out an application. This needs to be done before the fees are due, as the money goes right to the organization. Applications for assistance can typically be submitted from January 15 to November 1; with the goal for funding to be equitably distributed over Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter activities.
Your family meets our financial need requirements and your kid is registered, but what about the skates/cleats/racquets/gloves/helmets/uniforms they need to play? Not to worry. Jumpstart has you covered. The application asks for equipment details. Funds can also be provided for adaptive equipment to help kids with special needs.
Some other important points to note as part of the application process:
If you have additional questions, call 1-844-YES-PLAY or visit the FAQ Section
Information and Application available here: http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/alberta/apply-for-assistance/
: http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/alberta/alberta-provincial-fund/. You will then be walked though the entire process.
You will need to know your players fee amount (found in Registration Information) and have a Notice of Assessment on file to upload.
Applications are reviewed by KidSport within 30 days. Cheques for approved applications are mailed to the sport club directly within two weeks of the review date. You will receive an email confirming your application result. Please note incomplete applications will delay the process by a minimum of four (4) weeks.
Ryder and Radek were known as exceptional athletic competitors and even better teammates. Through their ability to compete they learned many valuable life lessons. Due to the current economic landscape and growing cost of athletics, the opportunity for our youth to play sports has become less prevalent and in turn, more of a privilege.
The R and R Foundation will set out to ensure that no youth in Whitecourt will ever be held back from exploring their athletic potential due to financial limitations.
