North End Sports

Introducing

According to the latest census, Winnipeg has the largest Indigenous population of any major city in the country. With a mission to strengthen Indigenous participation in positive healthy lifestyle activities, the MASRC believes that this means developing programs in Winnipeg. This Fall, we are introducing 3 programs to the North End.

North End Hockey

North End Basketball

North End Volleyball

With the exception of North End Hockey, if you are Indigenous and live in Winnipeg, you are eligible to participate. To be eligible to participate in the North End Hockey program, you must live within the limits of the North End.

North End Hockey

North End Hockey (formerly NEHP) helps to provide children and youth living in Winnipeg's North End with an opportunity to play organized hockey. The program is open to children aged 5 to 15 years who have a financial need and reside in the North End of Winnipeg.
