Do you have a baseball bat collecting dust in your garage because your kids have moved up to larger lumber?

Or last year’s ice skates that aren’t getting any action now that you’ve got the latest style?

There’s a way for you to donate your gear to a North Shore organization devoted to helping as many young athletes as possible get into the game.

KidSport North Shore is set to hold their first ever New and Used Sports Equipment Sale on June 24, and the group is now in the process of collecting equipment for the sale. The fundraising sale is a double play for the local sports scene, providing an opportunity for athletes to pick up quality equipment at low prices while also serving as a fundraiser to help KidSport get more young athletes in the game. The registered charity covers registration fees for North Shore children and youth from low-income families to be able to participate in sports.

KidSport will be accepting donations of new or gently used equipment from May 27 to June 4, with drop-off bins accessible during operating hours at several locations across the North Shore and Bowen Island, including the Delbrook, Harry Jerome, Karen Magnussen, Ron Andrews, Parkgate, West Vancouver or Gleneagles recreation centres, as well as the North Vancouver Tennis Centre and Hollyburn Country Club. Find donation details, including all of the drop-off points and what items are and are not accepted, on the KidSport North Shore website. 

The sale itself will be held Saturday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the gym at Carson Graham Secondary.

KidSport is also looking volunteers throughout June to help prepare for the event, as well as volunteers to help on the day of the sale. Any interested volunteers can sign up online here, or email
