The Nor’Wester Athletic Association from Edmonton, Alberta want to concentrate their efforts on 10 elementary and junior high schools in their catchment area. This will entail multiple visits to the schools in order to establish relationships between their Club’s Youth Development Officer and the students and schools.
They will provide the schools with basic equipment such as balls and flags so that rugby can continue on as part of the curriculum. As well they’ll hold a tournament each spring and invite the schools that they visit to participate. The NWAA celebrate their 40th anniversary this year and the inaugural tournament will be part of their anniversary celebration.
We wish the Nor’Wester Athletic Association all the best in this endeavour.
