The BC Summer Games
The BC Winter and BC Summer Games are British Columbia’s biennial celebration of sport and community. Since 1978, the BC Games have taken place in 38 communities and involved over 350,000 participants and volunteers and thousands more as spectators and supporters.
The purpose of the BC Games is “To provide an opportunity for the development of athletes, coaches, and officials in preparation for higher levels of competition in a multisport event which promotes interest and participation in sport and sporting activities, individual achievement and community development.”
The BC Games bring together British Columbia’s best emerging high performance athletes, trained coaches, and certified officials for four days of competition. This experience is an important development opportunity and stepping stone towards higher level sport competitions.
The most recent B.C. Summer Games were held from July 21 - 24, 2022 in Prince George after having been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. The games, which were scheduled to be held in Maple Ridge will return to that community for 2024. Vernon will host the winter games in 2023 which were postponed from 2022.
