Earlier this October, AHC’s Rural Small Centres’ Team hosted their first Winter Badminton Tournament in Camrose.
Inclusion in sports has innumerable benefits for youth, but many newcomer youth face barriers to sports due to sports organizations and facilities not anticipating their background and accommodating to their different languages and cultures.
We are so happy to create more opportunities for newcomer youth to increase their health, their social ties, and build confidence as they try new sports.
Thank you to all that participated and congratulations to our winners, Nice, Reece, and Axle.
If you a newcomer living in Rural Alberta and would like support in accessing resources or organizations in your community, you can learn more about Rural Small Centre‘s or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
