WHAT WE DO
Our sport grants have been leveling the playing field financially for low income Brantford, County of Brant and Six Nations families for over 20 years. We assist parents and caregivers who may have limited financial freedom to provide opportunities for their children to experience an active lifestyle in an organized sport. Participating in sport has many recorded and documented values for children and youth but also to families and to the community.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
- Participation in sports, and fundamental relationships with others, are key contributors to enhancing the quality of life for young people.
- Educating children and their families of the life potential benefits of organized sports to enhance the health of the children and their caregivers.
- Sports build self-esteem and positive self-image, allowing youth to confidently avoid negative activities and contribute positively to the community.
- Sports build social skills, stimulates participation in community life, and produces leaders who serve their communities in many ways.
