When families need a little financial boost to get kids involved in a sport, dance team or other active program, they need to fill out an application. This needs to be done before the fees are due, as the money goes right to the organization. Applications for assistance can typically be submitted from January 15 to November 1; with the goal for funding to be equitably distributed over Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter activities.
Information and Application available here: http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/alberta/apply-for-assistance/
Wetaskiwin & Wetaskiwin County residents apply to: http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/alberta/alberta-provincial-fund/. You will then be walked though the entire process.
You will need to know your players fee amount (found in Registration Information) and have a Notice of Assessment on file to upload.
Applications are reviewed by KidSport within 30 days. Cheques for approved applications are mailed to the sport club directly within two weeks of the review date. You will receive an email confirming your application result. Please note incomplete applications will delay the process by a minimum of four (4) weeks.
Our program helps financially disadvantaged children play hockey by ensuring kids have equal financial access to the game. Often times, Lace ‘Em Up funding starts where another organizations’ funding ends.
The Lace ‘Em Up funds are provided directly to your Minor Hockey Association who will ensure your outstanding registration fees are paid, and work with you and your sporting organization to determine other areas of need, and appropriate methods of disbursement.
Please go to http://laceemup.ca/ for more information and to register online.
