MORE SPORT

A program with more room for youth inclusion through organized sport

The Du sport en plus program is aimed at young people aged 12 to 17 living in the East End of Montreal.

The main objective of the program is to increase the practice of sports among these young people and to make them benefit from the positive effects of organized sports.

4 program components

Financial support component

Eligible youth can receive $275 in financial support to register for activities at participating clubs

Complementary activities component

Young people belonging to sports clubs in the east end of Montreal can benefit from activities in the form of training and workshops

Athlete Rendezvous section

East-end clubs and associations can register for the Conseil du sport de Montréal's Rendez-vous des athlètes.

Community of practice component

A community of practice gathering several actors of the sport community in the east end of Montreal will meet a few times a year in order to exchange on their initiatives mainly focused on the inclusion of youth through sport.

Reasons for the program

Organized sport is a great tool for positive youth development.

Too many young people are unable to participate in organized sports or, worse, are forced to give up their favourite sport because of financial constraints related to the cost of membership in association clubs.

Organized sport creates supportive, inclusive and safe living environments.

Montreal's sports clubs and associations were particularly affected by the health restrictions, mainly because of the decrease in their revenues associated with registration to their activities.
