Student Challenge Statement Introduction (full challenge statement to be released after the Kick Off):

This year we have partnered with the Indigenous Sport Council of Alberta (ISCA), the provincial sporting body for Indigenous peoples of Alberta,  and have the opportunity to use data they have collected from Indigenous communities related to health and wellness through sport, physical activity and recreation. 


Your challenge is to develop a strategy and actionable plan within the field of kinesiology that can remove barriers and provide more inclusive and better access to services and/or initiatives that improve health and holistic wellness among Indigenous individuals, families, and communities.
