The Aga Khan Council for the United States, in conjunction with Aga Khan Youth and Sports Board for the United States, is excited to host the United States Ismaili Games 2019. The games will bring together the United States Jamat of all generations, through sports, to showcase athletic excellence and cultural awareness in the true spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood, and to promote unity and fair play. The games will also encourage the development of athletic skills, healthy lifestyles, and friendly competition, and will provide a platform to engage the Jamat in voluntary and leadership activities through sports.
Athletes from across the country who have qualified through their regional tournaments will compete in a variety of sports. The weekend will also entail family-friendly activities for the entire Jamat. This year will mark the first year of something new and continue the celebration of the journey we have experienced in previous years through various milestones, as we come together as One Jamat and hope that “Together We Win.”
The Games will be held over two weekends in Texas during the month of November and will host a variety of sports, featuring junior categories for the very first time along with the adult categories.
