Families who are unable to afford being able to participate in WRSA Programs can apply to one of the local financial assistance programs (focused on financial assistance in physical activity programs). WRSA regularly receives funding for families from both Kidsport and Jumpstart, ensuring everyone has an opportunity to participate in our programs.
Information on these programs can be found below, as well as links to each website where application forms can be found.
Families are responsible for completing the forms and submitting them to each funding program for approval, WRSA does not complete or send in forms on behalf of families.
Jumpstart Program Info
Jumpstart Charities gives kids a sporting chance. Participating in sport helps kids develop physical and social skills. It helps build self-esteem. By helping kids get into the game, we’re equipping them with determination. And we’re giving them confidence that will extend beyond practices and games.
No kid should be left on the sidelines but in Canada 1 in 3 families cannot afford to enroll their kids in organized sports. That’s almost 750,000 kids every year who want to play, but just can’t. Jumpstart aims to change that.
Who we fund is simple: kids. Kids who want to get active. Kids who want to learn a new sport or activity. Kids who want to keep up with a sport or activity they already enjoy. But these kids just need a little extra financial help to get their name on the roster.
Kids aged 4 to 18 from families in financial need can receive funding to help with registration fees, equipment and/or transportation.
