Who We Are

Sport is just the beginning. A lifetime of sport is the ultimate goal.

The more active your kids are the healthier and happier they are. Participating in sport promotes positive mental health while building self-esteem, confidence, leadership and resilience. We think it’s fair to say kids feel better when they’ve had a daily dose of fun activity. 

Welcome to TenTen Kids Sports - Canada’s leading indoor and outdoor kids sports program provider. Since 2002, we’ve enriched the lives of over 50,000 kids who have participated in our engaging and active programs.

By focusing on having fun and getting kids active, we provide children with positive sporting experiences to help develop a lifelong interest in sport.

Our goal is to enhance kids’ lives through sport
