DEADLINE EXTENDED FOR 16U MALE PITCHERS AND CATCHERS:

The Team BC selection process for athletes to represent the province in the sport of male and female softball at the Halifax 2020 North American Indigenous Games is closed, however, the deadline has been extended for 16U male pitchers and 16U male catchers to submit an Athlete Expression of Interest application.

Athletes who are selected will compete at the Games, which will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from July 12 to 19, 2020.

The Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Council (I·SPARC) conducted athlete selection processes to form Team BC Development Squads in the summer/fall of 2019 for all four of the divisions participating at NAIG. However, our 16U male team (defined as born 2004 and later) is seeking athletes to fulfill the specialized positions of pitchers and catchers. Please note that this deadline extension is for 16U male pitchers and catchers only and is a supplementary process to the established athlete selection process.

Shortlisted 16U male Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) athletes will be invited to the Final Selection Camp – March 22 in Kamloops, BC.

16U male pitchers and catchers interested in Team BC for NAIG must submit their application via the Athlete Expression of Interest form (link below). Deadline to apply is March 13, 2020.
