Indigenous Youth Program

As part of the BC Lions’ continued commitment to the Orange Shirt initiative and building relationships with Indigenous communities, our football club is proud to launch the BC Lions Indigenous Youth Program.

The program is presented by Prospera Credit Union and supported by BC Hydro, Pomerleau Construction, Fortis BC and Leavitt Machinery.

This five-week program will allow participants from across the lower mainland to learn the skills and fundamentals of flag football with coaching from current Lions players. Program participants will learn the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership through sport and the game of football.
