Archery Championships

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.

Established in 1999, ASCNWT was created through a national consensus-building process in response to the need for more accessible and equitable sport and recreation opportunities for Aboriginal peoples across the Northwest Territories.

We believe that all Aboriginal people in the NWT should have the opportunity to participate in sport and recreational activities at a level of involvement they find meaningful and valuable.
