Supporting Edmonton-Based Programs
Sport Central provides support and resources to programs in the Edmonton area that offer kids in need the opportunity to participate in the sport of their choice. Here is a sample of programs Sport Central supports.
KidSport Edmonton and KidSport Alberta cover the costs associated with registration. They refer most of their clients to Sport Central to provide the necessary equipment.
The McCauley Rink Project
Sport Central has worked together with Al Hamilton (Former Edmonton Oiler) Sparky Kulchisky, Boston Bruin great Ted Green and Pastor Jim Holland to start up the McCauley Rink Project. It’s a safe place with excellent facilities for at-risk youth to gather and participate in sports and activities.
Other Edmonton programs we have partnered with include:
- The Boys and Girls Club / Big Brother’s Big Sisters (Edmonton)
- The HEROS Hockey Program
- The U of A Pandas
- Little Warriors Ranch
- Ronald McDonald House
- Our Lady Queen of Peace Ranch
- Shiloh Youth Ranch
- …and many others
Sport Central Outreach Program
The Sport Central Outreach Program distributes sports equipment and support to children and youth in need in northern Alberta. Its primary objective is to help interested and identified communities establish their own sustainable programs to source, maintain and distribute sporting equipment to kids in need. The outreach program partners with like-minded community groups to help them establish their own unique programs. This is done by sharing Sport Central’s “best practice” knowledge and the delivery of initial start-up equipment to qualifying communities. Because it is built by the community for the community, this program may look different everywhere it is established.
For more information on how your community can qualify and apply for sports equipment, email us.
