BC Games Leadership Bursary

Sport supports healthly choices, builds self-reliance and confidence, and inspires youth to become leaders. The BC Games provide athletes from across the province with an important competitive opportunity and exceptional experience to learn about teamwork, goal setting, friendship, and community excellence.

Athletes (and youth coaches and officials) at the BC Winter and BC Summer Games have had the opportunity to apply for the BC Games Leadership Bursaries valued at $500 each.

The bursary is intended to recognize athletes who have achieved in sport and education, but more importantly, go above and beyond in their communities through leadership and volunteer activities. Youth coaches and officials (under 19 years of age) who are attending the Games as part of a development opportunity are also welcome to apply.

For the 2022 BC Summer Games, the BC Leadership Awards were presented by Canadian Tire. The 2022 BC Summer Games recipients were notified and presented with their award during the Games.
