Winnipeg Blue Bombers Donate $100,000 to Youth Football

“As we emerge from the pandemic, we encourage everyone, especially youth to get involved in football which is truly the most inclusive sport – there is a position on the football field for everyone, Whether it’s a tackle or flag league, check with your community club for information on how join,” said Wade Miller, President, and CEO of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Since 2016, trained Winnipeg Blue Bomber players deliver 20 presentations and 20 workshops per year to high school students, football teams, coaching staff, and community leaders. Some of these include Break the Silence on Violence Against Women, Bombers tackling Bullying, Just Medlock’s Kick for kids and now a $100,000 donation of equipment to youth football including 220 new helmets for high school and women’s football programs.

The Club is also proud to support the Manitoba Fearless Women’s Tackle Football Program. The program supports a team of women ages 16 to 50-plus to develop their football skills. The Fearless play all their home games at IG Field. 

The Winnipeg Football Club’s 50/50 program and generous sponsors help support all levels of amateur tackle and flag football by ensuring athletes can play, and by assisting with the ongoing development of coaches and officials.
