Ringette is an expensive sport and while we would like to encourage participation by everyone in the community, the Association is financially unable to support all those who cannot afford to play.
Section 5 of the MHRA Policies & Procedures describes the processes by which the Association and, if applicable, the Player’s parents, can work together to provide for Players already active in Ringette when circumstances temporarily require assistance in meeting the financial obligations to the Association and the Team. There should be no loser in this process.
In identifying the need for support, the Association will endeavour to ensure that self-respect and pride is preserved for those requiring support.
Raising funds. Lifting spirits. Supporting dreams.
Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.
The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.
Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.
