In 2012, the BC Lions Football Club is excited to launch the third season of Lions Pride. In partnership with the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General along with supporting partner Enbridge, the Lions are once again inspiring youth to be active, make positive choices and excel.
Designed for youth in grades 8 through 12, Lions Pride is an outreach program highlighting the importance of making positive choices and choosing alternate activities to gang involvement. As part of the Lions Pride initiative, a four-team flag football league for at-risk youth will hold practices throughout the month of April, culminating in a tournament in May. In addition, all individuals selected to participate in the flag football program will be provided with tickets for the 2012 season.
Kicking off this spring, the Lions will visit high schools throughout Surrey, Abbotsford, Richmond and Vancouver, and will also make an additional eight stops in the Interior communities of Prince George and Kamloops.
