Welcome back!

Leadership Development Coordinator


The Aboriginal Sports Circle of the NWT would like to welcome back Beth Hudson in the role of Leadership Development Coordinator. Beth has spent the last year and half working as the Events Manager and is excited to move into a new role with the organization.

Originally from Edmonton, Alberta, Beth graduated with an Undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from the University of Alberta, and also received a Certificate in Aboriginal Sport and Recreation. She then started her Masters degree at the University of Alberta and moved to Fort Providence, NWT soon after. Her research, “Exploring the Physical Activity Experiences of Northern Indigenous Youth”, was a community-based participatory project focused on sharing the unique voices of local youth and how they conceptualized physical activity. After spending 3 years in Fort Providence (where she calls home now) and earning a Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Sport and Recreation, she moved to Yellowknife to join the ASCNWT.

Beth is passionate about building meaningful relationships with communities and supporting Indigenous youth in sport and recreation. In 2018, she won the NWTRPA’s Innovation Award for her leadership development work with Indigenous youth in the NWT. With a background in physical literacy, athlete health, coaching, and play, Beth loves providing youth with opportunities to learn to move in fun and creative ways. When she isn’t working, Beth enjoys working out, playing lots of different sports, exploring new places, and spending time with her friends and her dog out on the land.

Welcome back! If you'd like to get in touch, you can e-mail Beth at beth@ascnwt.ca or 867-669-8383.
