Athletics / MacEwan University Griffins
MacEwan Griffins want to share their enthusiasm for sports with kids! During the regular season, children under 12 can attend games for free and teenagers 17 and under only have to pay a toonie. Then, in the off-season, Griffins coaches and players host Junior Griffins sports camps, preparing and developing young athletes for competitive sport.
