Jumpstart Application


We Support the Jumpstart Program!


Jumpstart is a registered charity that helps kids from financially disadvantaged families participate in organized sports and physical activity. National in scope, but local in its focus, Jumpstart delivers support to children and youth through a Canada-wide network of Chapters and Community Partners. Jumpstart was formed in 2005 and continues to address the ongoing need in our communities to make physical activity more accessible in the lives of Canadian children from financially disadvantaged families. We understand the important life benefits that participation in sports and physical activity can have on the life of a child. Research has proven that participation in sports and physical activity increases a child's chance of overall success through:

  • A healthier lifestyle;
  • Developing life skills, such as increased self-esteem, confidence, teamwork and leadership; and
  • Improved school performance and future educational expectations.

Jumpstart supports programs which are delivered through Service Organizations and coordinated through a network of Community Partners who have the ability and authority to identify a child in need.

If your family is in need of financial assistance to register and participate on a team in the LCBA, please go through the Jump Start Application process.  You will be required to contact our Treasurer, lcbabasketball.treasurer@gmail.com and inform them that you are a Jumpstart applicant and your child's name and division you are registering for.  Please choose the E-Transfer option during checkout on our online registration portal.  When the payment arrives from Jumpstart, we are then able to apply it directly on your account.  Please note that you will still need to register online with the LCBA to hold your child's spot on the team as they do fill up quite quickly.
