Grants of $250, $500, and $1,000 to Capital Regional District, British Columbia athletes, schools, municipal recreation departments, and registered not for profit societies for costs related to sports and physical activities for female athletes. Three grant types are available: two types of grants to female athletes themselves and one type of grant to assist and expand sports and physical activity programs for girls.

Proud to Play like a Girl and Performance Development Grants
- Proud to Play Like a Girl grants support girls in the early stages of participation in a sport or a physical activity pursuit (e.g., dance, yoga).
- Performance Development Grants are intended for girls who are pursuing ongoing and high-level performance development in sport or a physical activity pursuit (e.g., dance, yoga).
- Grant monies should be spent to help cover costs related to attend a training clinic, camp or other form of athletic training, as well as travel, equipment, coaching fees, or program registration fees.
- Priority is given to applicants who demonstrate the financial need and who require support to address other barriers to their participation. KidSport will also consider an applicant’s experience with leadership, teamwork and fair play. Priority will be given to those who have not received previous Active Girls grants.

Play it Forward organization grant
- The Play it Forward organization grant is intended to assist schools, public and not-for-profit community recreation centres and associations in the Capital Regional District with their girls-only programming or to expand existing programs to reach more young girls in physical activity and sports.
- Please note: priority may be given to organizations who have not received an award in the previous 2 years.
