Hundreds of athletes spent their weekend fighting for places on Team NWT at the Arctic Winter Games in Greenland.

Six sports held their territorial trials in a variety of northern communities.

In Yellowknife, athletes tried out for volleyball, cross-country skiing, bantam hockey and futsal – an indoor version of soccer.

Hay River hosted territorial trials in basketball and biathlon, while Fort Smith welcomed female hockey players.

A second round of territorial trials in January will focus on individual sports such as badminton, snowboarding, table tennis and Dene games.

Almost all sports at the next Arctic Winter Games will take place in Nuuk, Greenland, from March 6-11. Hockey, however, is being hosted in Iqaluit, Nunavut.

Below, take a look through some of the sports’ top photos from the weekend’s trials.
