Help us by being our connection to kids in need. A vital part of what we do is helping disadvantaged families access our services.
Is it your first time referring to Sport Central?
Once you have filled out the application to be a referring agency, print-off and complete the Referral Request Template.
Email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 780-474-9982. Please inform the family to call Sport Central to make an appointment 24 hours after the referral is sent.
Please follow the instructions on our Agency Referral Checklist when submitting referrals.
Our referring agencies typically work with low-income families, children and youth who need financial assistance to get involved in sports. They include social workers, schools, charities and other community groups and facilities. To become a referring agency, your organization will need a process for determining the financial need of a family and must keep documentation of the families it refers.
Can more than one person refer from the same agency?
Yes, although some of the agencies we work with have identified one or two main referring agents. If you have not referred to us before but would like to do so, click on the link above in “Getting Started” to apply.

You can refer a child for as many different sports as they would like to play! We will only outfit a child with three types of sports equipment per appointment, but children are welcome to make multiple appointments for different sports throughout the year. Children wanting full hockey gear must be registered with an organized league.
Sport Central accepts referrals for children between the ages of 4 to 17 years of age.
You can refer children for equipment as often as they need it. As children grow, their equipment can be exchanged for bigger sizes. Referrals must be provided for each appointment.
