City of Waterloo Fee Assistance: Up to $300 annually.

City of Kitchener Leisure Access Card: If you have been declined by both KidSport and Jumpstart but have qualified for a City of Kitchener Leisure Access Card, you are eligible to receive a 50% discount off our class fee. You must provide proof that you have been declined from both Kidsport and Jumpstart in order to receive the Leisure Access Card discount. Parent Participation classes automatically do not qualify for Jumpstart and Kidsport and can therefore use the City of Kitchener Leisure Access Card.
