Congratulations Olympians!

Rio Olympics

Team Canada put forward a record setting performance in Rio at the Olympic Games.  We were so proud of our 39 BC Games and Team BC alumni including five medalists - Emily Overholt, Hilary Caldwell, Georgia Simmerling, Lindsay Jennerich and Patricia Obbee.  Also a huge shout out to alumni Evan Dunfee, who finished fourth in racewalk but more importantly, showed us all what it is to be Canadian and the true spirit of the Olympics.


Team BC Apprentice Coaches Named

2017 CSG

With the 2017 Canada Summer Games now less than a year away, three Team BC coaches have been named as apprentice coaches.  In the Aboriginal Apprentice Program, Shawn Coupland will be part of the Team BC basketball coaching staff.  In the Women in Coaching program, Allison McMillan will coach softball and Jennika Efford will coach swimming.  Congratulations coaches!


Happy 50th Birthday

BC Sports Hall of Fame

A big Happy Birthday to the BC Sports Hall of Fame which officially celebrated its 50th anniversary on August 23 by heading to the Pacific National Exhibition where it all began.  Honoured members including some BC Games alumni were in attendance to celebrate the big day.  We are also lucky to have the BC Sports Hall of Fame at the 2016 BC Winter and BC Summer Games where they showcased some great artifacts to our participants, volunteers, and spectators.
