Caisse Community Centre - 2022 Field of Dreams Grant Recipient
To play is to learn! Baseball diamonds and other sport facilities are classrooms for the children and youth of Canada. Kids should be proud of the places where they play while having the opportunity to learn life skills and participate in an important step in their socialization. Field Of Dreams is Jays Care's granting program for infrastructure dedicated to youth life-skill development and physical activity. The Field Of Dreams program provides funding to design, refurbish and build safe spaces for children and youth to play baseball, develop life skills and learn from positive role models. In the last five years, Jays Care has committed over $8 million to 66 infrastructure projects across Canada.
Through Field Of Dreams, children and youth increase:
- Access to high-quality sports facilities
- Physical activity levels
- Access to positive role-models and team sport

Through Field Of Dreams, communities increase:
- Access to baseball
- Access to accessible spaces
- Capacity for enrollment in youth programs
- Community engagement
The Caisse Community Centre was one of the successful 2022 Field of Dreams grant recipients in the amount of $85,000.00.
