Let $p$ be an odd prime, $n≥q3$ and $k$ positive integers with $e=\gcd(n,k)$. In this paper, a new family $\mathcal{S}$ of $p$-ary sequences with period $N=p^n-1$ is proposed. The sequences in $\mathcal{S}$ are constructed by adding a $p$-ary sequence to its two decimated sequences with different phase shifts. The correlation distribution among sequences in $\mathcal{S}$ is completely determined. It is shown that the maximum magnitude of nontrivial correlations of $\mathcal{S}$ is upper bounded by $p^e\sqrt{N+1}+1$, and the family size of $\mathcal{S}$ is $N^2$. Our sequence family has a large family size and low correlation.
