Local tryouts to be held for North American Indigenous Games

Lakeland Union High School and Lac du Flambeau Grade School will both be hosting tryouts and trials for Native American athletes to compete in the 2014 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG). 

The tryouts and trials will be held Aug. 10, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The 2014 games will be held in Regina, Canada, in late July 2014.

Gifted Native American athletes from tribes across Wisconsin will be at both schools in an effort to secure a spot on Wisconsin’s NAIG team. Many LUHS students will be competing in various sports, such as basketball, wrestling, volleyball, baseball, softball, archery, boxing, track and field, swimming, golf, lacrosse and soccer.

Team Wisconsin will be looking to bring home the gold again, so plan on seeing some great athletes in action as they put forth their best efforts to make next summer’s team.

The NAIG Council, the international governing body of the games, holds the mission to improve the quality of life for Indigenous Peoples by supporting self-determined sports and cultural activities which encourage equal access to participation in the social and cultural fabric of the community they reside and which respects Indigenous distinctiveness.

The NAIG is held every three years in alternating locations in the United States of America and Canada.
