Irene Doris Stevens makes Team BC!


Irene Doris Stevens from the house of Ksim Xsaan of the Ganada tribe in the Nisga'a Nation, has made Team BC and will compete at the North American Indigenous games in Toronto from July 16 - 23, 2017.

Irene's success has grown by playing school basketball and club volleyball on the same days from 3:00pm to 8:30pm. This involved running, drills, and scrimmages for 5-1/2 hours in the gym during week days. She traveled for tournaments and play days on the weekends and this helped to get Irene into really good shape to compete for a spot on the North American Indigenous games volleyball team u-16. Irene attended first NAIG volleyball try outs in Prince George 2016 and was asked to attend final NAIG selection camp in Kelowna March 2017.

Irene is fully supported by her dad who pays for her school sports fees all year and financially funds all of her school trips for school basketball, school volley ball and club volleyball. Irene thanks her dad, her band, her nation and her family for supporting her and believing in her.

Si'aamhl wilsim Irene!
