WHAT IS THE KIDSPORT OIL COUNTRY HOCKEY ASSIST PROGRAM?
The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation and KidSport Alberta have teamed up to launch the KidSport Oil Country Hockey Assist Program!
The reality is that hockey is expensive and the cost to participate can be unattainable for families. We will support communities in Oil Country by covering the cost of playing hockey and learn-to-skate programs for kids from underrepresented groups.
Together, we will ensure ALL kids in Oil Country can play hockey.
Families will apply to KidSport as usual to access the KidSport Oil Country Hockey Assist Program. Approved applicants within Oil Country will have their full registration fees* covered and have access to no-cost equipment from Sport Central.
*Full registration fees, up to $5,000 will be covered for eligible families*
**Please note that in order to apply for funding, your player(s) must already be registered/registering with a minor hockey association within Oil Country.
