Fee Assistance

Fee Assistance is a program of financial support for residents with low income living in our community that helps individuals participate in recreational and affiliated minor sport and arts programs. How the assistance is given, qualifications and the amount of subsidy varies between programs.

City of Kitchener

If you live in the City of Kitchener, they provide fee assistance through Jumpstart and Kidsport (or apply through KidSport directly below). Please refer to their Fee Assistance Website for additional details and contact information. 

Note: The City of Kitchener Leisure Access cards can only be used for City of Kitchener programs and NOT towards minor sports organizations.

KidSport Ontario

KidSport Ontario provides grant assistance to Ontario children and youth 18 years old and younger who are facing financial barriers preventing them from joining organized sport. Apply for KidSport assitance here.





Canadian Tire Jumpstart

Canadian Tire Jumpstart  Charities gives kids, between the ages of 4 and 18, a sporting chance.

Money raised within each community stays within the community and goes directly to help kids participate in sport, dance or other organized physical activities. Jumpstart funding helps families that need a financial hand with program registration costs.

Applications for Jumpstart need to be done before the fees are due, as the money goes directly to the sports association. Applications for assistance can typically be submitted from January 15 to November 1; with the goal for funding to be equitably distributed over Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter activities.

Beth Hughes, In Memorium

Beth Hughes was an instrumental force in the establishment of the Twin Cities Minor Tackle Football Association. Along with her husband Russ, Beth was the brains and the backbone of the Association’s early years. Our success today is testimony to the groundwork of Beth, Russ, and other founding families.

Beth Hughes was exceedingly caring, and thoughtful; nothing was too good for her Twin Cities players. While she relished the opportunity to recognize others for their hard work, Beth was very humble and avoided the spotlight of attention for herself. Beth was particularly concerned when a child with a desire to play football was unable because they couldn't afford it.

When Beth passed away in October 2008, the Hughes family graciously requested donations to TCMTFA to honour her memory. This was the first contribution to the Beth Hughes Memorial Fund, which today carries on as an important mission within our organization.

Beth Hughes Memorial Fund

The Fund is a dedicated reserve from which the Association may subsidize registration fees for players who, due to economic barriers, would otherwise be unable to participate in organized football. The Beth Hughes Memorial Fund is supported and funded by league operations and fundraising and is accessed equally by the Predator and Warhawk programs across all age levels.

The Beth Hughes Memorial Fund is intended to provide supplemental funding. Applicants are expected to access municipal payment assistance and sports grant programs, along with community groups, before making application for assistance through Twin Cities Football. To make application to the fund, players and sponsors are required to complete a Request for Fee Assistance Form.

Required information includes name and contact information for the player’s sponsor, a description of other funding sources solicited and an explanation of why assistance is required. The Board of Directors considers applications; applicants will be contacted when award decisions are made. Inquiries or application to the Beth Hughes Memorial Fund should be directed to the Treasurer of the Association.
