Winnipeg Newcomer Sport Academy was founded and formed in 2016, Winnipeg’s Newcomer Sport Academy offers quality sport programs to newcomer families as they settle into their new community. It is a multi-sport program offering opportunities to sample many sports with a special emphasis on soccer. Additionally the organization aims to assist youth and their families to connect with quality sport programs and other opportunities through involvement in sport.
Winnipeg’s Newcomer Sport Academy (WNSA) will strive to offer developmentally appropriate and culturally safe quality sport programs in a safe inclusive environment and will be staffed by qualified coaches and volunteers.
Winnipeg Newcomer Sport Academy provides low income, refugee newcomer youth and their families with quality multi-sport programming consistent with Long Term Development and True Sport Principles as a way to contribute to their positive integration in their new community.
Our program is unique as we welcome the families in their settlement to integration to inclusion while respecting and honouring their culture.
