Kickz is a healthy after school program for neighbourhood youth.
This program is a successful collaboration between Guelph Police Services, Shelldale Family Gateway, West Willow Village, Guelph Soccer, Guelph Wellington Immigrant Services and our uniform supplier Inaria. Guelph Police Service members volunteer as coaches which allows youth to see police in a social setting outside of police uniform.
The winter program runs for two 8 week sessions, once a week at the indoor soccer dome. The program is for those in grades 1-6. Kickz has had over 700 participants to date. High school youth are welcome to volunteer as mentors during the program. For information, please call 519 826 9930 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
