River Osborne is delighted to be part of the following two programs being offered under a program called SPIN.

SPIN is part of LiveSAFE, an initiative developed by the City of Winnipeg. SPIN stands for Sport Programs in Inner-city Neighborhoods, and is a long term and ongoing recreation strategy targeting inner-city children and youth as a preventative step and alternative to the streets. The program is designed to provide fun, healthy, active, recreation opportunities.
