Ice Kats Competing in the Ontario Summer Games
Submitted By WM on Wednesday, August 3, 2016
The Ontario Games Program started in 1970 in Etobicoke as a showcase for amateur sport. They have now become Ontario’s largest multi-sport event, including both team and individual sports.Provincial level athletes from ages 12 to 18 qualify through a regional selection process conducted by the Provincial Sport Organizations (PSOs).

The Games take place every two years and are awarded through a bidding process. They are supported by the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport in collaboration with host communities.

For many young athletes, the Ontario Summer Games is the highpoint of their sporting career, while for others the Games are a stepping stone for the Pan Am Games or even the Olympics.

The 2016 Ontario Summer Games are the largest in history. The City of Mississauga is the official host for the 2016 Ontario Summer Games, taking place August 11 to 14, 2016. Athletes, ages 12 to 18, from all regions of Ontario will compete against their fellow provincial athletes. The Games provide athletes with development and competitive opportunities that will prepare them for national and international sports competitions. It also provides communities, volunteers and everyone a chance to celebrate sport in Ontario.

For the first time, Mississauga is hosting the Games and will welcome athletes, coaches, managers and officials from across the province for this four-day event. The event roster now includes nine events from the Ontario Winter Games program making the 2016 Summer Games the largest in history. More than 4,000 athletes, coaches, managers and major officials participating in more than 32 different sport events including former winter sport events Boxing, Diving, Karate, Kickboxing, Sledge Hockey, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Women’s Hockey and Wrestling.  Weightlifting is a brand new sport added to the Games altogether.
