Ontario Summer Games
The Ontario Summer Games are the Province’s premiere multi-sport event and provide sports competition for youth between the ages of 11 and 22. The 26 sports will involve approximately 3,500 participants (athletes, coaches and officials) from across the province, as well as over 1,000 volunteers.
Ontario Summer Games athletes will compete in the following sports: archery; athletics; baseball; basketball; canoe/kayak; cycling; fencing; field hockey; lacrosse; lawn bowling; rowing; rugby; sailing; shooting; soccer; softball; swimming; tennis; triathlon; volleyball; water polo and water skiing.
The sport of fencing has been a core participant in the Ontario Games program. Until 2008 fencing was considered a winter sport in the Ontario Winter Games. In 2010, we participated in the Ontario Summer Games for the first time. The change was made to bring us in line with our other major games programs, (Canada Summer Games, Pan Ams, Summer Olympics), to give us a full season for selection, and to cause less intrusion into the participants’ academic lives.
The athletes in the 201 program will be selected from the Y16 (Cadet) age group. For the full Ontario Games fencing program, including selection criteria, watch this site.
