International Childrens Games 2013

Note: The deadline for this was Monday November 19, but the KW ICG committee has indicated that they need a few more swimmers to form a team.

In August 2013, the cities of Kitchener and Waterloo will each be sending a Delegation of athletes and coaches to participate in the 47th annual International Children's Games to be held in Windsor Essex, Ontario. Founded in 1968 Slovenia, the International Children's Games were established to create an event fostering a better understanding among children of different cultural backgrounds, as well as promoting peace and harmony worldwide through sport. Sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee, the Games are exclusively for children between the ages of 12 and 15. Additional details on the specific age eligibility requirements can be found in the information package.

In 2013, the Windsor Essex Games will feature the following 8 sports: athletics, baseball, basketball, gymnastics, soccer, swimming, tennis and volleyball. ROW is once again supportive of this potential opportunity to send swimmers to compete and experience this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Please review the Application and Information Package for the 2013 International Children's Games to be held in Windsor, Ontario. The package explains the process for applying to participate in the Games as well as the selection process for athletes and coaches. Please review the package so that you have a clear understanding as to the criteria for application and the necessary documentation and payments required. Completed application packages are due Monday November 19, 2012 4pm.

The information package outlines the aggressive timelines for the selection process for the sports and the athletes. Due to the close proximity of the games, the KW ICG committee expect a lot of interest from all sports. Please note the KW ICG committee will only notify the sports and athletes they have selected to participate in the games following the application and interview process.
