The BC Games Society was proud to nominate Ross Tomlinson as the recipient of this year’s Presidents’ Award for his ongoing contributions as the Provincial Advisor for Basketball.  Ross is strong believer in the BC Games and he works hard to ensure this opportunity for athlete and coach development is utilized to the full extent.   For over 10 years, he has been an effective and efficient Provincial Advisor representing a sport that is a valued and trusted partner of the BC Games.

The BC Games is an important milestone in the development of athletes and contributes to building the capacity of the provincial sport system.  “It is a great source of pride to see athletes, volunteers, and organizations who are connected to the BC Games recognized for their significant accomplishments.” said Kelly Mann, President and CEO of the BC Games Society.
