The best possible travel arrangements have been made on your behalf by the BC Games Society, as requested by your Provincial Sport Organization representatives. This may include charter bus or flight transportation to and/or from the Games.  All Games participants MUST log into BC Games Online Registration and Resource Site to print their transportation details (the username and password mailed is required to access this site).

If you are making your own way to the Games, please check with your Coach, Zone Representative, or Provincial Advisor to confirm the designated time for arrival at the Participant Accreditation Centre for your zone.  Even though you are making your own way to the Games, it is important to know when you need to arrive at the Participant Accreditation Centre in order to connect with the rest of your zone team and to ensure you are able to attend the scheduled practice time for your zone.


Every Games participant must be accredited in person by 5:00 pm on Thursday, July 21.  No one will be permitted to pick up the accreditation package for another Games participant.  The Participant Accreditation Centre is located at Island Savings Centre, 2687 James Street in Duncan.

Participants making their own way to (or being dropped off at) the Participant Accreditation Centre there will be parking available on the west side of the Island Savings Centre.

Once inside, if you are staying in Games accommodation, drop your luggage at the appropriate station for your sport and then go to your sport table inside the centre to be accredited.
At the Participant Accreditation Centre you will be given your accreditation badge, other important information entitling you to accommodation, meals, and transportation, and your Games t-shirt. You will also be provided with a customized Bus & Meal Schedule which outlines your travel itinerary for the entire Games, as well as your Sport Schedule, which details competition information.

After you are accredited, you will take a Games bus to the school that will serve as your accommodation site for the Games. You are responsible for taking all of your luggage with you.

All Games participants under the age of 19 must stay in Games accommodation.

You will stay with other participants in your sport at one of the public schools in Cowichan. Classrooms are used as dormitories and we've tried to put zones together. You'll need to bring a sleeping bag and pillow - we'll provide a BC Games foamie to serve as your bed.

Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Adult Supervisors are expected to travel on Games transportation with their athletes, must stay in Games accommodation with their team, and are expected to supervise their team throughout the Games. Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Adult Supervisors are responsible for the actions of their athletes.
