Background on the Games

The New Brunswick Indian Summer Games is an annual event that first began in the 1970s, designed to bring communities together to celebrate sport and youth engagement. The games were revived in 2010 after nearly a 20-year hiatus. Through the hard work and dedication of organizers, coordinators, coaches and parent volunteers, the New Brunswick Indian Summer Games are once again a highlight of the year for all involved. Athletes compete for points for their respective communities in the hopes of winning the coveted Summer Games Cup. Athletes at the summer games also compete for spots on Team New Brunswick for the North American Indigenous Games held in Canada each year under the management of Aboriginal Sports and Recreation New Brunswick.

2019 NBISG

Oromocto First Nation recently returned to the games in 2016. Since that time, our athletes have continued to shine and show their dedication with over 30 competitors participating each year. Our volunteers, coaches and parent chaperones are the backbone to our success. With the bid to host the event we will be drawing even more from the community and hoping to engage the Town, Military and local businesses to make it a success. Venues such as the Leroy Washburn Track, CFB Gagetown Field House, Track, Pool and Golf Club, School Gymnasiums and Sports Fields will be utilized along with local restaurants and attractions. An influx of over 1,400 athletes along with their coaching staff, families and community supporters will be visiting Oromocto from July 31 – August 9th, 2019. Events include an Opening Ceremony with musical performances, a full day of Track and Field competitions, Basketball, Volleyball, Badminton, Swimming, Archery, Canoeing, Softball, Soccer, Golf and Rugby.

How Can You Get Involved?

Sponsorship opportunities can help make the event a lasting memory for all involved. Advertising will be available through online social media, websites and event publicity as well as signage at events, programs and promotional packages. We will accept any form of donation or in-kind support.
