Indoor soccer – or futsal, as it’s officially called – is part of the Arctic Winter Games and on Nov. 4 Team Alberta North tryouts were held at the field house in Slave Lake. Most of the participants came from Grande Prairie and Fort McMurray. Thirteen girls and 18 boys took part. Nine from each group will be chosen to represent northern Alberta at the Games in March 2024 in Alaska. No Slave Lake players tried out. Other AWG qualification events will be held in Slave Lake in the next couple of months, including snowshoeing, arctic sports and Dene games. The latter two take place on the same weekend – Dec. 1 and 2. Snowshoeing goes Jan. 6. Need more info? Call Michelle Deering at 780-422-0779 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
