If you, or anyone you know, requires financial aid in order for their child to participate in the New Sarepta Minor Hockey Association program, please be aware that there are several programs available to remove the obstacles of kids participating in Minor Hockey. Some of the programs available are:
a. Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national charitable program launched by the family of Canadian Tire companies in 2005. Jumpstart Info
b. Kidsport - Feel free to contact or download a Kidsport application form from the following website at http://www.kidsport.ab.ca/ . Not all kids have the opportunity to be involved in sports. For those who dream of playing goalie, scoring goals, taking one for the team and making new friends, it's all possible through KidSport. For a happier, healthier lifestyle for Alberta kids, KidSport makes a difference. With the help of sponsors, volunteers and dedicated directors and staff, more and more kids are getting the chance to play sports. If possible please apply to Kidsport before registration so your child's hockey registration is not delayed. This information is kept strictly confidential.
c. Sport Central -Our primary goal is to gather, recycle and redistribute equipment to those kids who would otherwise be denied the opportunity to participate. Volunteers donate time to collect, inventory, repair and outfit those in need and raise funds to support operations. Gently used sports equipment is collected and sorted. Repairs are made to ensure the equipment is safe and serviceable. New equipment is often purchased to supplement supply and meet safety standards. "Kids" are referred by individuals or referral agencies, including schools, government departments, Community Leagues, and the Edmonton Police Services, and are outfitted by volunteers in the Sport Central Store. Please visit https://.sportcentral.org for further information and details of the program.
