The Texas Amateur Athletic Federation (TAAF) is bringing back their annual Winter Games of Texas to Frisco.
The nonprofit TAAF was formed in 1925 to support amateur athletics within the state. Twice each year, the TAAF holds multi-day, multi-sport, Olympic-style events — the Summer Games and the Winter Games.
Working with the City of Frisco, the TAAF created the Winter Games, with the inaugural one held in 2006. Each January for the past ten years, Frisco has proudly been the home for this fun youth sports event.
As it has been in the last few years, the Winter Games of Texas will feature over a dozen sporting competitions. The sports taking place for the 2015 Winter Games include: Archery, Basketball, Bowling, Figure Skating, Flag Football, Gymnastics, Ice Hockey, Kickball, Martial Arts, Soccer, Swimming, Table Tennis and Tennis. (Unlike last year, Soccer and Lacrosse will not be part of the 2015 Winter Games.)
In the past nine years, the TAAF says that over 35,000 amateur athletes have competed in these Winter Games in Frisco. Over 3,000 athletes are expected to compete this year, with over 14,000 spectators cheering them on.
Many of the medal winners of this month’s competitions will be able to advance to the National State Games of America, which are scheduled to take place later this year in Lincoln, NE on July 28th through August 2nd.
All of the sporting events will be held January 16th through 19th, over the MLK holiday weekend. With the exception of the Archery events held in McKinney, all of the 2015 Winter Games events will be held at various venues within Frisco.
