financial assistance

Hockey and everything that comes with it can be a significant investment! We have introduced payment installments by credit card (and we always have provided the ability to pay multiple installments by cheque).

There are a number of organizations that may be able to provide financial support.


KidSport is a national non-profit organization that provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport. KidSport provides financial assistance for registration fees and provides access to equipment for kids up to the age of 18.

They believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sport.

Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.

Carstairs Minor Hockey Association has our own hardship fund that is available to help families in need. The fund is available to help towards registration costs, but generally doesn't cover the costs entirely as the fund needs to be shared across our community.

We always accept donations to the 'Everybody Plays' fund via e-transfer at any time during the year and we thank any families that donate money to this fund during the registration process.

Find out more and apply by emailing Dean in confidence.


There are a number of other options available in Carstairs if you are not eligible for the above. Contact Dean to discuss your situation in complete confidence.
