Based on the performance of the Aboriginal youth at the 2016 NL Summer Games as individual Nations and after subsequent discussions, the ASRCNL feel that it would be in the best interest that we compete as one Team Indigenous. To have a competitive chance at competing for the overall title and having more aboriginal youth participate, the aboriginal population of NL would be better served to compete as one, compared to having the four individual Nations competing as individual Nations as we did in the 2016 NL Summer Games. By competing as one, would bring everything into realistic opportunities for our Indigenous youth to not only participate but be very successful on the Provincial, National and International stages. If youth would rather participate with their electoral district, that will be left up to the individual based on when being officially named to the team.
The NL Winter Games will take places March 10-18, 2018
As the ASRCNL would like to have as many aboriginal youths participate, we would be better served to unite as indigenous people as a collective instead of competing as individual Nations and succeed in one or two disciplines in the sports that are offered at the NL Games, but including the opportunity to make the electoral district team just increases the number of aboriginal youth we have participate on this stage.
