Congratulations on being selected to represent Team Yukon at the 2024 Arctic Winter Games in Mat-Su Valley, Alaska. I, like all Yukoners, am excited to cheer you on.

It is a tremendous accomplishment to make Team Yukon. Your hard work and dedication has gotten you here; now the work will continue to get ready for the Games. 

The time spent practicing and honing your skills with your teammates and coaches will prepare you for your competitions. There will be many wonderful moments ahead, and I am confident that you will be ready to prove to yourself, your teammates, and your competition, what you are capable of.

Your teammates are with you, and the Yukon is behind you - 100 per cent. We are proud of your accomplishments, and I know that you will do your best in representing our territory on this international stage.

May you reach your goals by trying your best, cheering your teammates on, and most importantly, having fun.
