We want everyone to be able to play!
We ask that those requiring financial assistance with our registration fee(s) to seek such through one of the local organizations providing such -- generally JumpStart, OutReach (representatives at various community centres), Family & Children's Services, or.... other as available to you.
Canadian Tire's JumpStart is a good starting point as the funds are administered by staff working at the the City of Kitchener or, in the case of Waterloo residents, the City of Waterloo. Both cities offer their residents Leisure Access Cards (LAC) with slightly different benefits:
We urge those requiring assistance to obtain a LAC as it offers access to many city programs. While you cannot use the LAC for help cover our registration, we use the LAC (whenever possible) to "qualify" players for subsidized registration fees -- this does not affect the dollar limit of the card nor your allowance(s). (This eliminates the need for you to provide financial documentation to us.) All we ask is that you pay what you can afford. (You may not quite qualify for an LAC, have exceeded your allowable limit for JumpStart or KidSport assistance --- whatever!)
Assistance from the Kitchener Sports Association and donations from sponsors and other participants enable us to offer subsidized fees so everyone gets to play! We thank those who help us offer subsidized fees and keep our program affordable for everyone!
We also have an inventory of baseball gloves for those in need of such. Now, not only does everyone get to play, but play safe and enjoy the game!
