Football Saskatchewan works with Aboriginal athletes
Football Saskatchewan has made it a priority to bring the sport of football to Aboriginal athletes across the province. Through a variety of programs it runs out of northern Saskatchewan, the provincial sport governing body is giving athletes the tools to succeed in football.
"In Saskatchewan there's a large population of First Nations and Metis athletes that we get to work with, especially in northern communities. We think it's an important demographic," said Football Saskatchewan High Performance Director Cody Halseth. "We think it's important to reach out and ensure football is part of their life, because it's a great sport and teaches a lot of life lessons."
