Native Youth Olympics

  • The first Native Youth Olympics Games were held in the winter of 1971. They were conceived and organized by students attending the Boarding Home Program School in Anchorage, Alaska. Cook Inlet Tribal Council (CITC) is the current host of the statewide games for both the Junior level (grades 1-6) and Senior level (grades 7-12).
    The purpose of the Native Youth Olympics (NYO) Games Alaska is to promote:
    • Healthy lifestyles, positive self-esteem, and leadership skills;
    • Appreciation of Alaska Native traditions;
    • Good sportsmanship through friendly athletic competition


Junior NYO Schools of Participation

  • Due to current MSBSD mitigation in response to COVID-19 and in the interest of the health of students and staff, the 2020-21 JNYO season was limited to 6th grade teams and a single district-wide organized competition.  We are hopeful that our JNYO opportunity will return for all of our elementary grades during the 2021-22 school year.
