2024 National Aboriginal Hockey Championships Identification Camp

March 21, 2024

We hosted the NAHC 2024 Identification Camp this month. Eighty male and female athletes were invited to the final ID camp held at the RBC Centre in Dartmouth. Each of the Atlantic Provinces held ID camps or scouted their local athletes in order to decide who to send to the final identification camp. Team Atlantic will be made up of 20 male and 20 female athletes aged 14-18 who will attend the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships held in Grand Prairie Alberta.

The tournament was established by the Aboriginal Sport Circle established in 2002 to serve as a showcase for Indigenous hockey players in Canada. It provides a forum for elite 14 to 18-year-old Indigenous young men and women, attracting participation from First Nations, Inuit and Métis across thirteen provinces and territories. This annual event helps foster cultural unity and pride as well as an opportunity to celebrate the athletic abilities of Indigenous athletes from across the country.

The skill level of our athletes improves each year and selecting the team is a difficult decision for our coaches. We are very proud of all of the athletes who came to the ID camps and would like to congratulate the athletes who were selected!
