            We would like to thank Mr. Foster for working so closely with the NYO athletes to perfect the high kick, eskimo stick pull, one foot high kick, two foot high kick, arm pull, wrist carry, kneel jump, eskimo stick pull, and seal hop.


            The first NYO Games Alaska, held in the winter of 1971, were conceived and organized by students attending the Boarding Home Program School in Anchorage, Alaska. In the first year of competition, twelve schools participated, with student athletes traveling from Sitka and Nome. Since then, the number of athletes and enthusiasm surrounding the games has increased as the NYO Games Alaska received state and national recognition. 


            Please contact Hank Foster, the Physical Education teacher for more details.
