The 2020 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) will be taking place from July 12-19 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. ISWO, the designated Provincial/Territorial Aboriginal Sport Body (P/TASB) for Ontario, is the organization authorized by the NAIG Council to select, develop and manage all aspects of Team Ontario for the purposes of competing at the NAIG 2020.
ISWO has launched a Sport Development Tour, which offers increased opportunities for young Indigenous athletes to tryout, develop their sport specific skills, train for competition and be identified for qualifiers or additional support. The Sport Development Tour includes multi-sport camps, identification at existing partner events and official tryouts. ISWO staff is working hard to identify as many athletes as possible from all regions of the province, for the opportunity to tryout for a place on Team Ontario to compete at NAIG 2020.
ISWO will be hosting identification opportunities, tryouts, multi-sport camps and training clinics, over the next several months into the spring of 2020, to ensure an inclusive and competitive Team Ontario, to represent the province at NAIG 2020.
