All Kids Can Play
Sport Aurora Believes That All Kids Can Play in Aurora!
Removing barriers and increasing participation rates, particularly in the youth segment of our Community, is a priority for us.
Financial barriers are sometimes 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.

Helping Families Give their Kids a Sporting Chance
One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enrol 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. 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.
Sport Aurora is a local chapter partner and has been identified to work together with its Sports Organizations to identify children in financial need looking to participate in organized sport and recreational activities that require the child to be physically active.
