This annual event was started to give students in the communities the opportunity to showcase their skills at a territorial level. All students and schools across the NWT are invited to participate.
The 2017 NWT Archery Championships will take place at the Yellowknife Ski Club from June 9-11. This year's Championship will also double as Team NWT's North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) tryouts.
