Financial Assistance


CMHA holds the position that NO child should be unable to play due to financial restraints and no family should suffer financial hardship in order for their child to play. CMHA is pleased to announce that all fees will remain the same as last season with no increase.

Please register your child and advise the Registrar that you have applied for grants for registration fees.  Please ensure you also note on your online registration that you are applying for funding to avoid late fees.  

Please do not pay your registration fees but you are required to pay camp fees, tryout fees in advance. 

Please note that all grants are only available for basic registration fees.  Camps, Rep tryout fees, Team Fees and Equipment costs are not covered by grants. 


Keep a watch here for information on the TriCity Kidsport semi annual used equipment sales.
