Jumpstart- Family Subsidy

Jumpstart - Canadian Tire Foundation

The Jump Start program is a community-based charitable program designed to help kids aged 4-18 participate in sports and recreation such as hockey, gymnastics, soccer, dance and swimming so they can develop important life skills, self-esteem and confidence. Jump Start Logo

JumpStart is national in scope but local in focus, Canadian Tire Jumpstart® delivers support to children in financial need through a Canadian-wide network of local chapters. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes is one of three local chapters that processes applications for Boys and Girls Club programs and community sports and recreation programs. In addition the Lindsay Gymnastics Centre and the City of Kawartha Lakes Parks & Recreation processes applications for their programs. Applications for Lindsay Gymnastics or City of Kawartha Lakes Parks & Recreation programs must be submitted directly to them.
