Calgary Children Play For Free
Children Play for Free
What is happening?
What should be happening?
How are we going to make that happen?
Should you elect me into public office as your Mayor I will be proposing to the new council that 1% of our cities annual budget go into a new Calgary physical education sports initiative. The basics of this initiative are that all public schools within city limits allow each child the opportunity to register for one sport for free each year. Children can obviously register for additional sports at their parents own expense, however those families who fall in the low income bracket will not have the financial burden or stress of paying for their children to participate in a school sport. At the beginning of the school year once children are registered for their sport of choice, schools would submit their application for grants to the city and would receive funding for their students physical sports educational needs as required.
