About the Games!

Want to know more about the Alberta Indigenous Games?

It has been recognized that today’s Aboriginal youth are the largest growing segment of Canada’s population and that they are a risk to a variety of social issues including poverty; health concerns such as a sedentary lifestyle, type II diabetes, heart disease and fetal alcohol syndrome. Excessive rates of incarceration; suicide; substance abuse unemployment and high school dropouts continue to plague the rural and urban Aboriginal community.

August 13-20th, 2020 will bring together Indigenous youth from across Alberta to engage in one week of competitive team sports, traditional games, special events, education, and cultural connection. The 7th overall Games will again honour the spirit of the late plan Allan Ross who was the founder of the Alberta Indigenous Games.

The mandate and theme of the Alberta Indigenous Games is RECLAIMING OUR YOUTH through sport development, educational empowerment, career opportunities, and cultural connection. In that spirit, the Edmonton Native Ball Association (ENBA) is honoured to organize the 2020th Alberta Indigenous Games.

Our Games have grown tremendously since its inception in 2011. We had 300 youth registered in 2011, 400 in 2013, 485 in 2015, 1100+ in 2017 and 900+ in a smaller 5 sports Games in 2018, and over 2,000+ in 2019. For 2020 we are anticipating over 2500+ youth. The games were founded by the late Allan Ross (1955-2015) who was both a teacher and coach working with many Aboriginal youth throughout his career.

Ross based the philosophy of the games around the teachings of Dr. Martin Broken Leg’s “Circle of Courage” philosophy which consist of: Generosity, Independence, Belonging and Spirituality.

This Summer August 13-20th 2020, the games will make its return for its 7th edition and 5th time in 6 years! We have become the largest Indigenous multi-sport Summer Games on a yearly basis in Canada. Read all about our current exciting highlights!

  1. Hi there,
    I heard there were low numbers at the boys basketball tryouts this weekend. Does that mean there will be another tryout? I coach the Sr boys atnGlebmary High school in Peace River and have a bunch that may be able to tryout… One of my boys were there this weekend.
    I had no idea there were these games tryouts till a week ago and was already past deadline to register for tryouts.
    Please email or give me a call 780-618-6728

    1. Send your boys to our Games in August. The tryouts you were referring to were for the North American Indigenous Games. We are Alberta Indigenous Games for the province. We have a big turnout for basketball. Any player is free to sign up and be put on a team or players can sign up with a team entry with their team. Individual is $80 per sport or $400 for the team. Updated Registration Forms are website now.

    1. Hi there is no limit to number of players on a team for ball hockey. It is co-ed. Just click on our information link on this website.

    1. We do have some pennies but most teams do have their own pennies or jerseys. If you are in Senior Division and older than 18 then coach isn’t necessary. We can help provide volunteers to help coach if needed.

  2. Regards! Numerous info.
