Sports & Recreation
All over the world, Indigenous communities are active in sports and recreation and act as champions in physical activity. Sports are an organized, competitive, entertaining, and skillful activity requiring commitment, strategy, and fair play whereas recreation may be sport activity that is performed for leisure, play, pastime, or exercise and it is not as competitive.
The more we participate in sports and recreational activities, the more we improve our wholistic health and wellness. IPACC supports this idea and believes that empowering people to be involved in sporting and recreational activities is the next step towards healthy and thriving communities.
