Winnipeg Blue Bombers linebacker Thomas Miles is taking youth under his wing today at the football club’s Winter Skill Development Camp.

Miles, a former Manitoba Bison, is the special guest coach for high school athletes looking to sharpen their football skills during the off-season.

“Growing and supporting youth football year-round is important to us,” said Wade Miller, president and CEO of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. “These programs are about providing opportunities for youth to stay active and learn football fundamentals over the winter months, and we’re proud to provide these programs at no cost to participants.”


The free, weekly programming for youth began this weekend with the Blue Bombers Futures kick-off for youth aged four to seven.

Both programs run Saturdays at the University of Winnipeg’s Axworthy Health & Recplex (350 Spence Street), while the Winter Skill Development Camp repeats on Tuesdays at the Winnipeg Soccer Complex North (770 Leila Avenue).
