We envision a Toronto where all children have the opportunity to participate in sport.
KidSport supports children who need financial assistance with sport registration fees and equipment costs. We believe that the power of sport participation promotes the development of children’s social, mental and physical well-being. Through increasing access to quality sport programs, KidSport strengthens the community of Toronto.
Drive for Dreams
Drive for Dreams creates life-long opportunities through education for youth in the GTA by engaging kids from at-risk neighbourhoods that have a high level of talent in basketball. For these kids, Drive for Dreams provides its players with rigorous training, approachable and committed role models, and access to high-profile tournaments in North America where they are seen by college coaches and given the potential opportunity to go to top colleges & universities on a scholarship. Since 2002, more than 1200 kids have participated in the overall program. More than 70% of the graduates from our high performance segment have received full ride scholarships and virtually all of the graduates go on to post secondary education. In many instances we have a profoundly positive impact on their life paths. Many graduates of this program return home to train, coach and mentor; becoming positive role models in their community and making a positive impact on those neighbourhoods.
