We are a firm believe in a child’s right to participate in organized sports. YRFA reduces the cost of sports by providing all equipment needed (with the exception of cleats). In addition, financial assistance may be available for those that qualify. Please contact info@yorkregionfootball.com in confidence for more information on solutions that may be available. Support is provided in partnership through the association and our partners below.

All Kids Can Play – Sport Aurora

Removing barriers and increasing participation rates, particularly among youth, is a priority for us. Financial barriers are often the only reason why some kids can’t join healthy, socially beneficial organized sport in our Town, so to reduce or eliminate that barrier we have developed the Sport Aurora All Kids Can Play Program. Applicants from any area are welcome to apply.

KidSport Ontario

kidsportKidSport believes that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports. KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

Jumpstart Program

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. Jumpstart helps cover registration, equipment and/or transportation costs to help children participate in a sport or recreational activity of their choice. 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. Since their launch in 2005, Canadian Tire Jumpstart has given 473,792 kids across Canada the chance to play.
