Financial Assistance for Youth

The VUL runs high quality recreational and competitive youth ultimate programs - this includes our junior leagues and skills camps, and the largest set of club youth ultimate programs in the country!

We want people of all ages to have fun, develop skills and character, live healthier lives, and build lasting relationships through spirited ultimate. As such, we strive to make our programs inclusive and accessible for all families. 

We recognize that being a part of a touring club team or elite training program in particular can be expensive, and we do not want cost to be a barrier. Below is a list of resources for youth ages 18 and under that help make participating in ultimate at any level more accessible

KidSport B.C.

Launched by Sport BC, KidSport B.C. is a grant program that aims to remove the financial barriers that prevent some children from playing organized sport. Learn more at

Athletics 4 Kids

A4K is a privately funded charity with the goal of making sure B.C. children are not denied the opportunity to participate in their dream of playing amateur sports due to lack of funds. Head to for details.

Jumpstart - Canadian Tire

Jumpstart offers individual child grants for sustained programs that involve a sport or physical activity to families who meet specific financial criteria. Visit

The Indigenous Youth Sport Legacy Fund
