What is the KidSport Oil Country Hockey Assist Program

The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation and KidSport Alberta have teamed up to launch the KidSport Oil Country Hockey Assist Program! Read the full Press Release.

This initiative will support communities in Oil Country by alleviating the cost of playing hockey for kids from underrepresented groups. The reality is that hockey is expensive and for the cost to participate can be unattainable for families.

Together, we will ensure that ALL kids in Oil Country can play hockey.

Since 1998, KidSport Alberta has supported thousands local minor hockey players so they can play the game that they love.

Note, you must be registered prior to applying for funding

How do I Apply?

Removing Financial Barriers

Sometimes, families need financial assistance to get their kids into a sport or physical activity. We’re committed to helping all families access a range of activities, from boxing to bowling and skating to skiing, and more.

Hockey Canada Assist Fund provided more than 1,700 kids with registration fee funding for the 2021/2022 season.
