EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW (events, sports, divisions, days of sports, locations) ABOUT THE 2022 Alberta Indigenous Games

 

2022 Alberta Indigenous Games August 11-18th @ RUNDLE PARK, Edmonton, AB – 15 SPORTS
3,000+ Indigenous youth (4,000+ youth, coaches & chaperones) from across Alberta are invited to engage in a week of competitive sports, traditional games, special events, education, and cultural connection! 2022 AIG Games is following the previous successful Games of 2021 which had over 2,700+ youth, 2019 Games which had 2,100+ youth, 2018 Games had 900+ youth (half sports/half funding), 2017 Games had 1,100+ youth, 2015 Games had 480 youth, 2013 Games had 400 youth and 2011 Games was our first Games and had 300 youth. Ages born 2012 to 2001 for 14 of the sports and for the sport of basketball for the first time ever are adding an adult division for ages 1992-2000 so basketball will be 2012-1992! Many of those 22-30 year olds will have participated in our earlier AIG Games and can come back this year!

NEW THIS YEAR!!! Ball Hockey and Golf both have Boys and Girls separate divisions so no more COED!
Basketball gets an Adult Division for birth years 2000-1992 for male and female each! Archery, Athletics (Track & Field), and Canoe/Kayak are back!

We have University and College Coaches/Scouts coming to recruit our older youth. We have scholarships for those Senior Division athletes that have graduated high school and enrolled in the fall in University, College or Trade School. Opening Ceremonies on August 11th are at the West Edmonton Mall and will be the largest Indigenous Gathering ever there breaking last year’s 1,300 in attendance! 

NOTE: There is NO REQUIREMENT FOR ATHLETES, COACHES, OR ANYONE ELSE TO BE VACCINATED (for the Covid-19 Vaccine) to participate in the 2022 Alberta Indigenous Games.
