Canadian Tire Jumpstart - Leduc Chapter Canadian Tire Jumpstart Logo

 Canadian Tire Jumpstart® is a community-based charitable program that helps youth aged 4-18 participate in organized sports and recreation such as hockey, dance, soccer and swimming, so they can develop important life skills, self esteem and confidence.

You can call Canadian Tire Jumpstart’s toll free number (1-877-616-6600) year round and a call centre representative will provide you with the contact information of your local Canadian Tire Jumpstart chapter, based on your postal code. The Canadian Tire Jumpstart chapter contact will require detailed information about the children applying for funding, the organization where the activity will take place and the costs of the activity. A financial needs assessment may also be required to determine eligibility.

Physical activity gives a lot more to youth than just rosy cheeks and a healthy weight. It helps build self-esteem, social skills, concentration and character. Also, it helps children learn how to work together, how to share and how to become a leader.
