The 2016 Alberta Summer Games will take place from July 14-17 in Leduc.
A team of 40 track and field athletes (i.e. 10 per category) from NW Zone 8 – the Peace Country – was chosen from the NW Zone 8 ASG Trials Meet in Grande Prairie on Saturday, May 14. Youth athletes (born in 1999 and 2000) and Midget athletes (born in 2001, 2002, and 2003) were eligible for selection.

Team Practices in Grande Prairie – Starts Tuesday, May 31
For athletes in the Grande Prairie area, we’ll start team practices on Tuessday, May 31at 4:3- p.m. For now, we’ll go on Tuesdays, but we may add days later on depending on the interest.
For out of town athletes, if you can make the odd Tuesday practice, that’s great. I don’t expect you to drive 2 hours each way from Peace River to be at practice every Tuesday. However, it’s up to you to practice on your own – you want to be at your best for the Games in July. If you’d like some advice about training, please e-mail me.
