Nighthawks Athletics


NEC Wellness Warriors

Teamwork, competitiveness, and support are what our players can expect when joining the Wellness Warriors – NEC’s sports programs and activities. 

The Wellness Warriors Nighthawks community athletics program was started in early 2012 by a group of committed volunteer Native Education College staff and students who saw a great demand for more opportunities for both structured and informal sport, physical activity and wellness programming for urban Aboriginal adults.
