Did you know that not all children have access to a safe place to play?
Did you know that transportation and cost are the two largest barriers that prevent children in urban communities from playing any sport?
Organizations such as Algonquin Sports for Kids, Inc. are working to change that! Here's what parents and players had to say:

Player: "I like it because it's a nice way for all the other kids, that maybe can't afford the expensive soccer programs, to come together and play soccer. They've been teaching us about how many hours to sleep at night and how much glasses of water and good portions of food to eat. Near where I live, I see a lot of young kids starting to smoke. They're like 'oh you should come smoke a cigarette' and I'm like 'No I've got soccer to go to' "

Parent"Money is kinda tight right now and if this program wasn't free I wouldn't have been able to let my daughter play. I've wanted to sign her up for so many things because she needs to be challenged a little and we just couldn't afford any of it. We are so grateful for you and this program so she can play!"

We can't wait to bowl the night away with you, November 12th!

Algonquin Sports for Kids is particularly focused on an educational model of coaching and training. We encourage our teams to have a fun-loving, sportsman-like attitude about their sport and, rather than over-emphasize competitiveness and an "all-or-nothing" approach to winning, our players are coached that, as in their daily lives, they should do the right things on the field, not...
