Canadian Tire Jumpstart has generously provided funds for our camp equipment in 2015 and 2016. Main Place Optimist Club of Erin is a community partner with Jump Start.

Any child who needs financial help with sports equipment and/or their sports/camp fees can contact us and we will help you apply for funding under the Jumpstart program. You can pick up a Jumpstart brochure at the EWCS office on 45 Main St. Erin.

Jumpstart Charities gives kids a sporting chance.

Participating in sport helps kids develop physical and social skills. It helps build self-esteem. By helping kids get into the game, we’re equipping them with determination. And we’re giving them confidence that will extend beyond practices and games.

No kid should be left on the sidelines but in Canada 1 in 3 families cannot afford to enroll their kids in organized sports. That’s almost 750,000 kids every year who want to play, 
​but just can’t.

Jumpstart aims to change that. Across Canada, Jumpstart has over 300 Chapters, which are made up of volunteers from across the Canadian Tire enterprise and local community groups, such as local Parks and Recreation Departments, Boys and Girls Clubs and the YMCA/YWCA, among others.
