Our U15MD and U15 A team is
participating in the Orange Jersey Project.
This is being led by the Orange Shirt Society, Keener Jerseys
and Canadian Tire. The project was born out of an idea about using
the power of sport to serve as a vehicle to educate young athletes about the
history of the Indian Residential School System and to strengthen the path
toward truth and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.
Each jersey has #87 on the front to represent a call to action in the Truth and Reconciliation report which invites us to celebrate and provide public education that tells the national story of Aboriginal athletes in history.
