What you can look forward to!

The Games will attract competitors from the 8 different zones across Alberta. Each zone requires competitors to qualify to represent their respective regions. Close to 1000 participants will take part in several different sports and activities, including track and field, bocce, photography, tennis, and cribbage to name a few.

Apart from the chance for the community to be involved in an amazing event and to showcase their healthy lifestyle, the economic benefits for the Region will be significant. Sports Tourism has been identified as one of the single largest contributors to the hospitality industry. Hotels, campgrounds, restaurants, and retailers can expect to see a significant boost to their business and the organizing committee and the Brooks Newell Region will be working with them to make the community “Games ready!”
