North Winnipeg Nomads to Host Inaugural Football Jamboree
The North Winnipeg Nomads Football Club will host its inaugural football jamboree Friday, May 15 at its home field and clubhouse; Markus Howell Field at 581 McPhillips.
The Jamboree will feature 19 teams of boys and girls from grades 4-8, partnering with the Seven Oaks School Division. This one day event will bring the community to the Nomads club, Manitoba’s largest amateur football program, so everyone can see the facility, participate in a flag football tournament and try on football equipment. The facility will also be open for tours. Lunch will be provided to all athletes, teachers and parents by the Nomads and its volunteer Board of Directors.
Blue Bomber Alumni, Football Manitoba and The Winnipeg High School Football League have also been invited to partake in this event. The Blue Bombers have supported this initiative since day 1 and continue to give back to amateur football at every opportunity they can and are a key community partner of the Nomads.
The honourable Melanie Wight, MLA for Burrows, Minster of Children and Youth Opportunities will kick off the jamboree with a message to the students and be part of a Nomads tradition of a rooftop photo with everyone involved.
“The Jamboree will bring the game of football to those that may not have the opportunity or fully be aware of what the game has to offer – and it’s more than just hitting and tackling – it’s about teamwork, mentorship, becoming better today than yesterday and making better community citizens, through the discipline that football provides to its athletes. ” Stated Nathan Yamron, President of the North Winnipeg Nomads.
