Lakewood’s Ways & Means
Lakewood realizes that all families may not have the means to fully finance their children's participation in sport. An open club culture means recognizing special cases where assistance may be necessary, deciding on levels of help available and keeping individual family details in confidence. Please note that in order to qualify for Lakewood's Ways & Means funding for registration fees, families must first utilize KidSport and JumpStart program options, as well as the SYSI Athlete Assistance Fund.
Ways & Means funding please can be requested for registration fees and/or team fees. For full information please visit our Ways & Means page.
