Russell Soccer Club receives Jumpstart Grant
June 8, 2021

Hello Russell Soccer Club Members

We are really excited to announce that the club was selected to receive a grant from Jumpstart @CTJumpstart.  This grant has allowed us to buy equipment and supplies to help us deliver a safe and fun season without additional costs.  Specifically the club has purchased masks for all of our coaches and portable goals to allow us to better maximize the space we have and keep the groups distanced.  

Below is further information on this wonderful program.

·        Along with Jumpstart, we understand the role sport plays in the health and well-being of kids and their families and are doing everything possible to help community sports continue

·        Last year, with the support of CTC, Jumpstart Charities disbursed $8 million through its Sport Relief Fund, fulfilling nearly 700 grant applications, to help organizations continue to operate through 2020

·        With Canadian Tire Corporation’s commitment of an additional $12 million to Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund in 2021, together, we’ll help build back communities through sport and play

·        As one of over 500 sport and recreation organizations across Canada to receive grant funding from the latest round of support from Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund this year, the continued need for support is apparent

·        In 2021 alone, Jumpstart has disbursed over $9 million in grants to over 800 sport and recreation organizations across Canada through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund
