Other available programs:
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.

We see it as equipping kids for life because participation in organized sport and recreation increases a child's chance for success in life.
