Goal of the Community Club Grant

This grant aims to support Ontario coaches and participants with the tools they need to get back on the playing field, while keeping safety top of mind.

Sports play a vital role in our communities, and has been sorely missed over the past year. While we are very excited at the prospect of resuming play, we also recognize that there will be new costs that many will be responsible for in order to keep themselves and their athletes safe.

This fund aims to offset some of these coach expenses, so that a safe return to sport remains accessible for all of Ontario.

Applications for the grant run from March 21st until April 22nd.
