Funding Options for Financial Assistance
At Trail Gymnastics, we want to help make it possible for all children to participate. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please speak to Nicola or Katy about the options available. We have 4 community funding partners that you can access depending on your child’s age. We also have various volunteer avenues available, from which you can earn credit towards your child’s fees.
Stars for Success/ Success by 6:
Gymnast must be under the age of 6 and application must be in before program starts. Funding is $100 per calendar year per child.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart:
Gymnasts’ age 4-18 years can apply for Jumpstart funding. Applications can be submitted from January 15-June 1 for spring/summer programs and from July 1-November 1 for fall/winter programs. Funding is up to $300 per child per funding period.
Athletics 4 Kids:
Applicants must be between the ages of 5 and 18 years old in order to apply and must be enrolled in school. Net family income must be under $40,000 a year, or be receiving social assistance.
Please apply in advance of the start date so that funding will not be delayed to your child’s sports organization. Your application must be in no later than 14 days after the start of play for a program that is less than 3 months long and no later than 30 days after the start of play for a program that is more than 3 months long. Funding is up to $600 per calendar year.
Kidsport Greater Trail:
Gymnast must be age 18 and under to qualify for Kidsport. Our funding for gymnastics is currently limited to 25% of the total Kidsport Greater Trail funds for the year. This funding is allocated by us. All Kidsport forms must come through our office or funding will not be approved. Funding is up to $200 per child per calendar year.
We have copies of all funding application forms at the gym. Most require a signature of a sponsor to verify need of funding. We ask that when you have your form complete, that you drop it off with us so that we can direct it to the appropriate partner and also keep a copy on record so we know you have applied. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
