UWinnipeg hosts basketball training camp for youth focused on Indigenous teachings

The University of Winnipeg will be hosting a new basketball training camp for female athletes between the ages of 13 and 18. The camp is offered by Zaagi’idiwin Sport Performance, an athletic platform created by UWinnipeg alumnus Robyn Boulanger (Berens River First Nation) in partnership with Adam Thompson. The camp focuses on Indigenous teachings, on-court skills, and movement and fitness training. “When they go on this platform, they’re able to see people that are similar to them and have similar experiences and stories, right?” said Boulanger. “(We’d like to show) Indigenous kids from these communities and portray the message that you can integrate for a movement into Indigenous culture and you can bring your game to the next level by doing so.”
