Team Alberta was impressive at the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg, Manitoba, earning 97 medals and finishing fourth overall.

“Congratulations to all our young athletes, coaches and mission staff on their outstanding performance at the Canada Summer Games,” said Ricardo Miranda, Minister of Culture and Tourism, responsible for sport in Alberta. “We are very proud of Team Alberta’s accomplishments, which are a testament to their passion, fantastic coaches, and amazing community support.”

Team Alberta captured 26 gold, 38 silver and 33 bronze medals at the Games and many of our athletes achieved personal bests.

The 17-day competition, featuring the best young athletes in Canada, saw Team Alberta proudly representing their province, competing hard, reflecting the spirit of good sportsmanship, and delivering, day-in and day-out on the field of competition with many outstanding individual and team performances.

“We couldn’t be prouder of Team Alberta’s performance, their sportsmanship, and the outstanding job they did representing our province at these Games,” said Andrew Ference, Chair of the Alberta Sport Connection (ASC). “We know that for many athletes, the Canada Games are an important step in their journey to representing Canada at future international competitions, and we look forward to supporting them and following their careers in the years to come.”

Team Alberta’s involvement in the Games is coordinated by Alberta Sport Connection, a provincial corporation dedicated to the development of sport in Alberta.  Its vision is for Alberta to be the premier sport delivery system in Canada.
