YMM It’s Games Time!


Alberta Games volunteers make a big difference in the lives of young athletes through their generous contributions of time, skill and commitment.

The Alberta Games has 2000 volunteers to make the 3-day event successful and create a lasting memory for these athletes!

The 2018 Alberta Games in Wood Buffalo will play host to 2800 athletes, coaches and technical officials. These are Alberta’s best young athletes competing in 22 different sports.
