Athletics 4 Kids Mission
To ensure all BC children, regardless of socioeconomic status, can participate in organized sport by providing families with financial assistance.
Athletics 4 Kids Goal
A4K’s overarching goal is to be there to assist any B.C. child in their dream of playing amateur sports. We want all kids to have the opportunity to play
How we help
All across BC, hundreds of children and youth are denied the opportunity to participate in amateur sports due to one simple fact: lack of funds.
As a privately funded charity, we are able to get dollars into the hands of those who need it most, quickly and effectively. We help families bear the expense of having their children participate in organized sports because we believe that all kids should have the chance to play.
The support of A4K is available province-wide for children ages 5 to 18 who are currently enrolled in school. Basic registration fees are paid for a multitude of approved sports, up to an annual maximum of $600 per child (which is considerably higher than other sport funding charities).
