Financial Support

The purpose of the Kath Larkin Support Fund is to provide financial assistance to families covering up to $200 off their Kidskate or Canskate registration fees.

The Kath Larkin Support Fund covers up to $200 per child, per calendar year towards NSC Kidskate or Canskate registration fees.

Katherine (Kath) Larkin was a dedicated volunteer who served the Newmarket Skating Club on the Board of Directors for many years, including Badge Test Chairperson, Synchronized Skating Chairperson and Skate Canada Test Chairperson.

Kath leaves behind her husband Mike, her son Tom as well as her skating daughters Kate and Beth. Kath also leaves behind thousands of memories with hundreds of families that she touched in the skating community. She always had a smile on her face and was always willing to help.

What better way to honour Kath’s memory than to create a sponsorship fund in her name. Kath believed, as we all do, that every child should be given the opportunity to learn how to skate.

Eligibility  |  NSC considers social and economic barriers facing the child’s family when determining eligibility. All applications are held in the strictest of confidence. Funding for one year does not guarantee funding in future years so you will need to reapply every year.

Deadline  |  Applications must be submitted by September 15th.

More Information  |  The Kath Larkin Support Fund is dependent upon the financial health of the Newmarket Skating Club and will be reviewed annually. If you have any further questions, please email office@newmarketskatingclub.com or phone 905-895-2582.

A completed application should be placed in a sealed envelope, marked "Newmarket Skating Club, Attention: Operations Coordinator" and dropped through the NSC office mail slot located on the lower level of the Magna Centre.

Alternatively, it can be mailed to: Newmarket Skating Club, Attention: Office Manager, P.O. Box 93052, 1111 Davis Drive, Newmarket, Ontario  L3Y 8K3
