On the lookout

NWT - The selection process for the 2015 Canada Winter Games got underway last month as the boys and girls hockey teams hit the ice looking to go to Prince George, B.C. in February. But Sport North is now on the lookout for mission staff for the games.
Potential staff must be willing to attend planning meetings before the games, attend mission staff meetings during the games, have a sport background and handle all situations arising at the games, among other duties. A criminal record check must also be provided with your application.
You have a bit of time as the deadline to apply is Nov. 14.

Nominees wanted

NWT - The third annual NWT Sport Hall of Fame induction ceremony isn't until November, but Sport North wants you to start thinking about who should join the illustrious cast already enshrined there, as the nomination deadline is coming up.
Nominations can be made in the athlete, builder or team categories and nominations can come from territorial sport organizations, teams, athletes or the general public.
The deadline for nominations is Sept. 15.

Tricks galore

HAY RIVER - The new skate park in Hay River is all set to go and that means it's time for people to show off what they can do.
The town will be hosting an X-Games competition on Sept. 13 at the skate park and it's open to youth of all ages. There will be skateboard, BMX and scooter categories for competitors to try their luck at and it's all free. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers in each event. It all begins at 11 a.m. on event day.

How strong are you?

HAY RIVER - Ever wondered how fit you really are? The town's recreation department will see just how you measure up as there is a fitness testing clinic happening on Sept. 10 at the Don Stewart Recreation Centre.
Anne-Marie Bourgeois, a physiotherapist in the town, along with Emma Harper, strength training instructor, will put people through the ringer in terms of strength, aerobic fitness and flexibility.
Registration is underway and can be done by contacting the town's recreation department.

The games approach

QAMANITTUAQ/BAKER LAKE - The annual Kivalliq Summer Games competition is coming up in Baker Lake from Sept. 12 to 14.
The event is an Arctic Sports competition with events that include the one-foot and two-foot high kicks, Alaskan high kick, airplane and sledge jump, among others.
Richard Aksawnee, the community's recreation co-ordinator, said participants have confirmed from every community in the region except for Repulse Bay. It all wraps up on Sept. 14.

One-stop shopping

IQALUIT - The biggest day of the year for registrations is coming up at Inuksuk High School on Sept. 6.
That's the day when mass registration takes place and every single community group in the city can get its chance to show off what they're doing and take in registrations.
It all begins at 11 a.m. on event day and tables can be booked for for free. Contact Tyrone Gardner at the city's recreation office for more details.

Meeting of the minds

IQALUIT - The Iqaluit Tundra Tumblers Gymnastics Club will be holding its annual general meeting on Thursday at Aqsarniit Middle School.
A board of directors for the club will be elected with 10 out of 12 positions to be filled that evening. The new board will be responsible for co-ordinating registration this season. The club's bylaws will also be reviewed and amended at the meeting. It gets underway at 7 p.m. and is open to everyone.

Learn to dribble

IQALUIT - The Arctic Winter Games Arena in Iqaluit will play host to an invitational soccer skills camp from Sept. 12 to 14.
The camp will feature the best boys and girls soccer players born in 2000 or later and will go over attacking drills, ball control and other aspects of the game.
