Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy
For the past seven years the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation has worked in partnership with the Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre (WASAC) to run the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy, previously known as the Lil’ Moose Hockey Program.
The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy provides opportunities to children to participate in a recreational program. The mandate of the program is to provide them the chance to play hockey while surrounded by their peers and positive role models. By providing children with an opportunity to experience the positive benefits of hockey, the Foundation believes that they will have increased confidence to pursue their goals, on and off the ice. Participation barriers have been removed by providing programming staff, equipment, transportation, ice rentals, nutrition, and qualified on ice instruction to all academy participants.
