Founded in 1975, Canby Kids Inc is a non-profit 501(3)(C) umbrella
organization for sports who provide youth recreational and
competitive teams sports opportunities for children in and around the
Canby area on a year-round basis. Each sport has their own sport
programs and affiliations, their own boards, their own financial
accounts and play in leagues of their own choosing. The Canby Kids
Board is an all volunteer board that consists of five members at large
and representatives from each sport. The Members at Large supply the
bulk of the volunteer work of Canby Kids. There is one part time
employee that staffs the office. The Canby Kids office provides
administrative services for all its sports by providing a 501(3)(C) tax
status, tax reporting, office presence, managing field usage and turf
maintenance, payroll reporting for sport field crews, and offering a
means for all sports to work together in a cohesive fashion. Over 500
volunteer parents, coaches, and supporters work in partnership with the
Canby School District, our business community, and local government to
provide competition in six sports, including Canby Junior Baseball,
Canby Wildcats Softball, Canby United Soccer Association, Canby Cougar
Football, Canby Youth Lacrosse.
Each sport hosts a variety of tournaments. An example is the Canby
Fall Classic Recreational Soccer Tournament. This is one of the premier
Recreational Youth Soccer tournaments in the State of Oregon. Over the
tournament weekend, over 10,000 tourists will visit the city to enjoy
the youth soccer event.
The Canby Kids office is supported by all its member sports. Due to
the loss in 2001 of our $25,000 City Grant, the Canby Kids board has had
to been resourceful to keep the office open. We have used a combination
of fundraiser and per player fee of from all its member sports to
replace the city grant funds. In 2002, we formed a fundraising
committee who organized a Dinner/Dance/Raffle& Auction event in the
hopes of reducing the per player fee. That fundraiser has had success,
although it has not been able to replace the lost city grant. 100% of
the proceeds from the Dinner/Auction will be used to reduce the sport
fees for operation of Canby Kids. Currently, we have passed the cost of
Canby Kids office on to the sports on a per player fee. We gladly
accept any and all donations to the Canby Kids Scholarship Fund. This
fund is used to assist those in financial need.
The philosophy of Canby Kids is to provide a fulfilling and enjoyable
sports experience for each player, regardless of skill level, ability to
play, or ability to pay. We are proud of our record within the community
and very much treasures our ability to work as a community partner in
Canby. We look forward to many more years of serving the youth in
Canby Kids, Inc. is a
designated 501(3)(C) organization.
