We’re excited to see you in Lake Placid!

33 Cities from 14 Countries!

The city of Lake Placid, USA, will welcome the youth of the world for friendly competition at the 8th International Children’s Winter Games from 6 January to 11 January, 2019.

Lake Placid will be the first United States city to host the International Children’s Winter Games and we are excited to welcome the world once again to our region. Lake Placid has twice played host to the Olympic Winter Games, in 1932 and 1980. Lake Placid has a long history of international sports competition and currently hosts many international events each year.

The ICG is dedicated to pursue the common goal of forming nation-linking friendships through the exercising of sports and the arranging of sports competitions. The goal of the International Children’s Games is to enable, develop and advance the meeting, understanding and friendship of students from different countries, and to advance the Olympic ideals.

The city of Lake Placid will offer competition for youth ages 12 to 15 in the sports of Alpine Skiing, Biathlon, Cross-Country Skiing, Figure Skating, Freestyle Skiing, Ice Hockey, Snowboard, and Speed Skating (both long and short track). Entry into competition for the ICWG is by invitation.

In addition to sport competition, Lake Placid will offer cultural exchange events, entertainment programs and more, to help create lasting friendships and memories.

The city of Lake Placid and the state of New York welcome the children of the world to the 2019 International Children’s Winter Games!
