Athlete Appreciation Night in Arctic Bay

The hamlet held an Athlete Appreciation night this evening in the community gym to celebrate the accomplishments of all our athletes. Certificates were handed out for soccer, basketball, hockey and badminton as well as for the Canada Games. There are plans to get all of the certificates that were handed out framed and put up on public display which I think is a fantastic idea.

Bronze for 15 and under girls soccer in the 2006 Baffin Regionals and the boys 13 and under gold medal.

Local athletes represented our territory very well at the 2007 Canada Games in Whitehorse and brought home lots of "bling". One of our athletes displays her gold and bronze medals.
