The Flamborough Girls Hockey Association wants ALL children, regardless of family or financial situation to have the opportunity to play hockey.
Should your financial situation become a barrier to having your daughter play hockey, there are a number of foundations in Ontario to help families pay for minor hockey. Please see below for links and descriptions to some of the available resources. Should your situation require additional consideration (payment plan etc.) please reach out to our Registrar, Kelly Sullivan.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities is a registered charity (#1379 29 451 RR0002) dedicated to removing financial barriers so kids across Canada have the opportunity to get off the sidelines and get into the game.
Jumpstart’s core purpose is to enrich the lives of kids (from 4 to 18) in need through sports and physical activity. We assist with the costs associated with registration, equipment and/or transportation.
The Recreation Assistance Program provides City of Hamilton residents living with a low income the opportunity to participate in organized sports and recreation programs. This program has multiple benefits, including assistance with up to 50% of Hockey League registration fees up to $150.
The Grindstone Award Foundation is a charity that enables young female players to participate and improve their skill development in the sport of hockey. The intent is to provide support to communities across Canada and address the needs of players who have a desire to play, but are unable to for financial reasons. The Foundation provides grants to female players under the age of nineteen who have expressed a desire to pursue their goals in athletics. Our selection will be based on financial need and desire, not on hockey ability. It is the Foundation’s intention that all grants will be awarded objectively in accordance with this criteria. Follow them on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for all the latest information.
This 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.
