United Way – help kids!

Did you know that a child not at a Grade 3 reading level on time is 4 times more likely to drop out of highschool?

Or how about that… most students experience summer learning loss, referred to as “summer slide”, causing them to fall behind or “slide” backwards during the school year?

United Way is taking action!

By connecting kids to their community.
Last year, 838 children and youth took part in after school recreational programming, giving them a sense of community and allowing them to just be kids.

By supporting emotional and physical wellness.
Last year, 3,318 meals were distributed to vulnerable youth at a shelter that may have otherwise gone without.

By focusing on engagement in learning.
Last year, 54 children participated in 2 week literacy and language camps. One camp had a focus on tackling summer “slide” and the other increasing the children’s English language skills. We saw great results from these first camps!
In both the literacy and language camp the children were excited to learn, the parents felt supported and the final testing showed that 92.5% of the students in the literacy camp maintained or improved their pre-program reading skills and on average in the language camps students overall vocabulary grew by 22 words.

How can you help?
United Way needs your support by helping to raise $25,000 to help even more kids be all that they can be in 2017.
Together we can give children and youth the start in life they need, we can prepare them for kindergarten, we can help them reach their grade level reading milestones and we can empower them to be healthy independent adults.

Please donate and help children and youth in your community reach their full potential.

Bursaries for YAS Basketball Camp

Hall*Comm Bursaries will be available in order to help Saskatchewan youths (8 – 16) afford fees for sports camps to be held in Saskatoon and Regina during July and August, 2017.

Bursary applications may be submitted from March 1 until August 1

Hall*Comm Trust will co-fund youths from across Saskatchewan who wish to attend summer sports school or camp, but who cannot afford all the school or camp fees. Frequently, a partnership between charitable organizations will enable a youth to attend sports school or camp at significantly reduced fees and often FREE.

Hall*Comm Trust is very selective, and will only co-fund youths for attendance at camps or schools headed by certified professional “A” teachers who are also highly accomplished skills-development coaches. After extensive consideration, Hall*Comm Trust has chosen to partner with Canadian Tire Jump Start (CTJS) in order to co-fund youths to attend Young Athlete Saskatchewan Inc. (YAS) 2017 summer basketball camps.

Kaylyn Kyle Soccer Academy

As you may have heard Kaylyn Kyle is bringing her soccer academy back to Saskatchewan this October.

Following the success and great feedback from last years sessions in Saskatoon and Regina, this years academy has expanded by four cities as we endeavour to make it bigger and better than last year, with jerseys for each player by Under Armour, gift bags for each participant, and prize draws at the end of camp put together by our amazing sponsors.

As part of registration, each players name will go into a draw to win an autographed Orlando Pride jersey signed by the entire Orlando Pride Team. The draw for this jersey will take place at the end of October following the end of camps and the jersey will be given to one lucky winner who attended The Academy

The Saskatoon Camp has been moved from Thanksgiving weekend, and is now an evening event on Thursday October 13th. This has worked out great, as it is now $99 and allows those youth players that could not make it over the long weekend an opportunity to attend.The schedule is as follows:

5:30-6pm Registration for all age groups
6-7:30pm Training for all age groups
7:30pm onwards- Meet and Greet, Autographs and Speaking Engagement in the Pleasureway Lounge at the Sasktel Sports Center

All players will train within their age group during the training session. The camp is open to both male and female players from 8-16 years of age, of all levels and abilities.

As the weekend has been moved from a weekend event, and in order to ensure that Kaylyn can spend time with each player, spaces for the evening are limited.

All registration details, schedules, and any additional information can be found at http://kaylynkylesoccer.com. If players wish to register, the process can be completed online under “The Academy” tab.
