About the Southern Alberta Summer Games


The Southern Alberta Summer Games were first held in Pincher Creek in 1970 with the intent to provide an opportunity for those in many different sports, age groups and skill levels to compete in regional competitions. Since then, the Summer Games have grown exponentially and is now the longest running annual sporting event in Alberta.

Each year, the Games are hosted by a different Southern Alberta community, offering around 20 sporting events, as well as, a variety of cultural events. Over the four days of the Games, over 2000 athletes will participate from the 13 regions in Southern Alberta.
