Nissan Canada and the Canadian Football League announced on Wednesday a new "Back in the Game" program that will provide funding and support to 21 football programs across the country.
The selected programs will be given funding, equipment, playing field improvements, training materials or whatever other obstacles that may have been keeping them out of the game.
In addition to Nissan's committment, the CFL will be supporting the program and helping to grow youth football across the CFL's landscape with special guest appearances and resources, official CFL merchandise and amplification of program messaging and onsite activations throughout the season.
There are three BC schools selected as part of the program:
Eric Hamber Secondary School - Vancouver
Burnaby Central Secondary School, Burnaby
Earl Marriott Secondary School - South Surrey
