Fee Assistance


 

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:

  • Kitchener's LAC can only be used for their City programs (such as swimming lessons) and facilities.
  • Waterloo's LAC can be used for their City programs (same as in Kitchener) but also for, with City approval, local minor sports programs affiliated with the City of Waterllo or KW programs. (Our Stanley Park Ball Program is associated with the City of Kitchener but NOT Waterloo so not eligible for funding through Waterloo's LAC.)
  • Kitchener & Waterloo residents wishing assistance  for participation in minor sports programs (such as ours) are required to submit a separate request (on-line is best) to JumpStart  -- the application goes directly to the respective City for processing..
  • OutReach workers (at various community centres) have various sources of funds and can coordinate applications for such and provide guidance for programs providing help; e.g. sports programs, courses, transportation, food bank, shelter, employment, child care, etc. If you have a case worker, that is the best place to initiate the process. They know all about the LAC benefits and will help you apply.

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! 

You can register online and note the financial arrangements that you've arranged or have in process. Do not wait  for everything to be finalized! For more specific information, discussion and/or partial payment, please visit us at one of our registration sessions - as noted elsewhere on this site.
