Financial Aid

We understand that  sports can be a big investment in your child. The good news is that you may qualify for financial assistance.

Kidsport, Jumpstart and Athletics4Kids will all provide funding to eligible families.  The amount available varies from organization to organization- please research this before submitting your application, as parents are responsible for providing payment to SSCG should adequate funding not be provided.

When you apply, please be aware you will be required to submit to the funding agencies information from your tax return and other documentation including your invoice from SSCG.  You will need to have these documents available at the time of application, so please have them handy.   You may be required to go through a phone interview before funding is approved.  

Families are responsible for paying the $43.50 Gymnasitcs BC membership fee directly to SSCG upon registration.  When applying for funding, families are required to provide a $100 deposit payment to Salt Spring Circus and Gymnastics via etransfer.  Once funds are received by the club, this deposit will be returned to you via etransfer.

Families are responsible for payment should funding be denied.  Families are responsible for the outstanding balance if the amount of funding granted does not cover the invoice total.

Please note:  If the $100 deposit is provided and the funding application confirmation number is provided to us within 7 days of registering, we will hold your space in the class.   If this poses a financial hardship to you, please reach out via email to discuss an alternative.
