From Past Host Community Volunteers...  

The Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games brought our community together again for another outstanding celebration of provincial youth sport.  Hats off to our dedicated Board of Directors who assembled talented teams of chairs and volunteers, 2700 in total, to produce a flawless Games experience for our guests.  The BC Summer Games made dreams come true for youth province-wide.  It was a privilege to be part of this wonderful event and to share the joy helping young athletes meet their goals.

There is a saying "if you want to go fast, you go alone; but if you want to go far, you go together".  The BC Winter Games showed how far Penticton will go together in showcasing its passion for sport, community, and youth.

From Participants and Parents...    

It was fun to meet so many people from around the province who participated in my sport as well as getting to know them.  I loved the opportunity of going to see the other venues and a chance to see how other kids did.  It was an awesome experience and I wish I could go back!

The Games creates a new level of sportsmanship, respect for your fellow athletes. Lastly, the bright eyed faces of the athletes when hearing the opening ceremony crowd cheer for them as they walk into a standing ovation, that is a moment they will never forget

Coach and Parent

My daughter participated in the 2014 and 2016 BC Summer Games.   I can say unequivocally that both of these events were among the best of her experiences to date.   While she has already participated in numerous provincial and national competitions, there is nothing quite like being part of a large multi-sport event such as the BC Games.  She enjoyed having the chance to meet athletes from other sports, and loved participating in the ceremonies and other social events.   From a parent’s perspective, I was in awe of the incredible attention to detail in the organization of hundreds of athletes, volunteers and officials.    I was also impressed with how the BC Games Society was able to work with the host community to give them a sense of ownership as well.
