Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance

The Flamborough Girls Hockey Association wants ALL children, regardless of family or financial situation to have the opportunity to play hockey. 

Should your financial situation become a barrier to having your daughter play hockey, there are a number of foundations in Ontario to help families pay for minor hockey. Please see below for links and descriptions to some of the available resources.  Should your situation require additional consideration (payment plan etc.) please reach out to our Registrar, Kelly Sullivan.


Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities is a registered charity (#1379 29 451 RR0002) dedicated to removing financial barriers so kids across Canada have the opportunity to get off the sidelines and get into the game.

Jumpstart’s core purpose is to enrich the lives of kids (from 4 to 18) in need through sports and physical activity. We assist with the costs associated with registration, equipment and/or transportation. 

City of Hamilton Recreation Fee Assistance Program

The Recreation Assistance Program provides City of Hamilton residents living with a low income the opportunity to participate in organized sports and recreation programs.  This program has multiple benefits, including assistance with up to 50% of Hockey League registration fees up to $150.  

Grindstone Award Foundation

The Grindstone Award Foundation is a charity that enables young female players to participate and improve their skill development in the sport of hockey. The intent is to provide support to communities across Canada and address the needs of players who have a desire to play, but are unable to for financial reasons. The Foundation provides grants to female players under the age of nineteen who have expressed a desire to pursue their goals in athletics. Our selection will be based on financial need and desire, not on hockey ability. It is the Foundation’s intention that all grants will be awarded objectively in accordance with this criteria.  Follow them on TwitterFacebook and Instagram for all the latest information.  Grant applications are open between June 1 - July 31, 2020.  Click here to apply. 

Lace'Em Up Foundation For Kids

This program helps financially disadvantaged children play hockey by ensuring kids have equal financial access to the game. Often times, Lace‘Em Up funding starts where another organizations’ funding ends.

Applications for the 2020 Lace’Em Up Hockey Registration Grant are now open. Applications will close on September 30th or until funds run out. We encourage players to apply early as funds are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they have updated our funding policies for this season. Lace'Em Up is currently accepting, reviewing, and awarding grants for the 2020-2021 hockey season but they will not be sending any monies until the end of September. All cheques will be sent directly to the hockey associations along with a list of players that were accepted.  If you have any questions please email
