We all need a little help sometimes. The City of Kelowna recognizes the need for financial aid to support the competition, education and event hosting needs of our locally-based sport community. In response, the following community sport grants have been established: Sport Education Grant, Sport Event Grant, Athletic Excellence Grant, and KidSportTM Grant.
Community Sport Delivery Grant
The Community Sport Delivery Program (CSDP) has been created to support the staffing needs (i.e. Head Coach, Administrator) of Local Sport Organizations and assist in the delivery of local sport participation and performance initiatives. This grant will fund paid positions to ensure the provision of a wide range of programs and services to athletes, coaches, and volunteers from the grassroots to competitive levels that align with the Canadian Sport For Life (CS4L) Model.
