Play. Inspire. Unite.
As Black History Month kicks off across the province, Ontario Soccer is excited to present a new program initiated by Canada Soccer, aimed at reducing barriers for all participants new to Canada and promoting inclusion in organized soccer through club-hosted Free Kicks - Try it Events. The program is being funded by Sport Canada.
The Free Kicks Grant program will see Canada Soccer select 100 Clubs from across Canada to participate, with each organization receiving $1,000 of funding. Grant funds can be used to host a Try It Event, designed to welcome more new to Canada participants, and/or celebrate inclusion within an organization.
The grant application window opened on Wednesday, January 24 and will close February 14, 2024. Please see the full program timelines below:
