While swapping hockey equipment, West Kelowna hockey players also raised money for a program that helps put kids into organized sports.
The hockey gear swap on Sunday was held at Ultimate Hockey and Skate.
Players chose their gear for the upcoming season while fundraising for KidSport.
“Sixty per cent of the sale price of the items goes back to the owner of the equipment and 40 per cent comes to our KidSport chapter,” West Kelowna Rec coordinator Kevin Bourchier said.
The program offers grants to families who can’t afford the registration fees to put their kids in sports.
“You just apply, if you’re a West Kelowna or Peachland resident, you apply to this chapter and get funding. There’s also a chapter in Kelowna, if you’re a Kelowna resident,” Bourchier said.
Dozens of sports are eligible under the Sport B.C. organization that the funding can be used for.
