KWICG History

The International Children’s Games invitation is a Mayor to Mayor request for participation.  As such, a city must be involved to accept the invitation to participate.  Prior to 2008, city of Kitchener staff organized participation in the Games.  A decision was made to formulate an ICG committee made up of staff and volunteers to develop a structure and process to send delegations to these games each year.  The committee was struck, and as a majority of affiliated minor sports groups are Regional or are organizations that span both Kitchener and Waterloo, city of Waterloo staff was also invited to the table to participate.
 
As an affiliated minor sports group, the Kitchener-Waterloo ICG Board is recognized as the exclusive committee to work with the City of Kitchener, City of Waterloo and the associated minor sports groups in sending participants to future games.
