We put kids in sports. They put themselves in the game.

Changing the lives of underprivileged youth through sports

COVID-19 Update

Like all organizations, Athletics For Kids (A4K) has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a non-profit organization, we depend largely on key fundraising events that have now been postponed. With the uncertainty around our funding, A4K has made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all outstanding payments to sports organizations.

We will continue to receive and process applications from families once sports organizations have resumed play and A4K is in a financial position to fund the applications. We are doing our utmost to support our staff while minimizing costs during this time and ensure that we will continue to be there for our recipient families once the crisis has subsided. We will continue to review this situation on a regular basis and advise once we get back to business as usual. Check back here for updates as the situation progresses.

During these difficult times, we encourage all families to stay active while maintaining their new social distance. We thank you for your understanding.

More than 1/3 of Canadian children can't participate in sports or recreational activities due to financial barriers.

Sports help children establish a pattern of physical activity that continues on into adulthood, helping to build self-esteem, leadership skills and social skills.
