    Yukon's athletes have won 10 medals in total so far, second only to Team Alaska's 13

    The 2024 Arctic Winter Games are now in full swing, keeping Team Yukon busy across Mat-Su Valley, Alaska.

    The U18 Men’s Hockey team earned a win against the Northwest Territories in a 6-4 game on Monday thanks to a tough defense and well-placed goals. They return to the Menard Memorial Sports Centre tomorrow to face off against hosting Team Alaska.

    Some early successes in Rail Jam, on Monday. Team Yukon’s snowboarders placed first and third in U16 female division, second in the U14 female division, and first and second for both U16 and U14 male divisions. The snowboarding competition resumes tomorrow with slopestyle.

    Women’s Volleyball had a tough day, Monday, with two losses against Alberta and Alaska. But not without a silver lining, in a win against Nunavut.

    The medal count for Team Yukon so far is sitting at ten medals: four gold and six bronze. Team Alaska leads in medal count with 13 in total.

    Team Yukon continues the competition on Tuesday in Dene Games, Arctic Sports, badminton, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and curling events, to name just a few. To livestream the Arctic Winter Games, visit
