Battle of the racquets

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - While soccer players duke it out in Hay River this weekend, there's another school sports tournament happening in town.
The Yellowknife Middle School Tennis Tournament takes place at the Fieldhouse Friday with Mildred Hall, Allain St. Cyr, St. Joe's, William McDonald, Range Lake North and Weledeh all vying for the titles up for grabs.
Ulli Nolting, the tournament's co-ordinator, said he's expecting around 50 athletes across four divisions.
St. Joe's will walk into the tournament as the defending champions in all of them.

Futsal aplenty upcoming

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Next week will be a big one for futsal in Yellowknife and Ndilo.
Kyt Selaidopoulos, the head coach of the Canadian men's national team, will be in town from Monday to teach the official indoor version of soccer to the young and not-so-young. Running for a week, activities start Monday evening with a men's camp at St. Joe's gym beginning at 6 p.m. The session is open to all male players 18 years or older.
Following that, Selaidopoulos will make the rounds to schools, beginning with N.J. Macpherson on Tuesday morning, followed by K'alemi Dene School in Ndilo that afternoon. He will also visit Weledeh, St. Joe's, J.H. Sissons, William McDonald and Range Lake North throughout the week.
