Health and Safety
The Junior All Native will begin on Sunday March 15, 2020 and we are excited to host 78 teams in Kelowna, BC. The health and safety of players and fans is of utmost importance to us. We have been in touch with First Nations Health Authority and we are taking measures to help reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 at the Jr All Native Tournament. The PHAC and BC CDC have assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 and continue to present the risk as LOW.
Currently, there are no active cases of the COVID-19 in the interior and we have been in close contact with FNHA to ensure we have the latest information. We have a safety plan in place and are taking every precaution to ensure a safe tournament.
We will continue to monitor the information on the COVID-19 and will contact you with any updates relevant to JANT as they occur. Please see the JANT Game Protocol and other information pertaining to JANT and Covid-19 (PDF)
There will be some great arts and crafts vendors at the Main gymnasium as well as a vendor to do custom names and numbers.
On Tuesday March 17th there will be Career Fair hosted at Okanagan College located right next to the main gymnasium. This open to anyone interested. All attendees will be entered to win some great prizes. Teams that attend will be entered into a $1000 cash draw and some other great prizes.
Any time, any day, any season, Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley, offer a world of things to do. Your options are endless, and there`s something for everyone.
