Flames Even Strength Program/KidSport:
The Flames Even Strength Program helps families cover the cost of hockey registration fees thanks largely to title sponsor, the Calgary Flames - Flames Foundation for Life.

Families who want to apply for this funding must complete the FESP form and submit the required documents to McKnight Hockey Association at our walk-in registration event.
Please note that the deadline indicated on the form is for McKnight to submit to Hockey Calgary on your behalf. The association must sign off on your application, and you cannot apply directly to Hockey Calgary.

One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enroll their children in sport and recreation activities because of financial barriers (Ipsos Reid, 2009). That means that many kids are missing out.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart is dedicated to removing barriers, so children can participate in organized sport and recreation.
We see it as equipping kids for life, because participation in organized sport and recreation increases a child's chance for success in life.
They discover and participate. They gain self-confidence. They develop self-esteem. They learn leadership skills. Their lives become richer. This is the power of Canadian Tire Jumpstart. For more information please click HERE or view a copy of the brochure...page 1....page 2.
