In February, Canadian Tire Corporation announced an additional $12 million commitment to Jumpstart’s sport and recreation organizations build back sport and play in Canada.
Jumpstart conducted a State of Sport study via Ipsos which revealed the pandemic has not only impacted current access to sport and play but has real long-term effects as well. Ryu Senshi Judo Club and the communities it serves have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.
We recently received confirmation that we are amongst over 500 sport and recreation organizations nationally to be provided with the grant support through the latest round of Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. In 2021, Jumpstart has already disbursed over $9 million in funding to more than 800 organizations across Canada through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know the positive impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations, and ultimately, on kids across the country.
With the Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to provide our first summer programs! With the funds we were able to purchase additional club equipment that will enhance our programs and enable our instructors to better implement required modified instruction when required for participants that are at different skill and learning levels. Other equipment purchased, such as wall mats and crash mats will increase the safety of our practice area.
Please let us know if you have any questions and/or if you are interested in connecting.
