YOUR TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS
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 custom travel itinerary.  A letter will be sent by direct mail to all final registered participants expected to arrive by February 7, 2022. This letter will contain a user name and password to access the Games Online Registration and Resource Site and to access your custom travel itinerary to/from the Games.

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 directly at the respective accomodation site. Even though you are making your own way to the Games, it is important to know when you need to arrive at the accommodation site 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.

PARTICIPANT ACCREDITATION PROCESS
Every Games participant (athlete and coach) must be accredited in person by end of day Thursday February 14, 2022. No one will be permitted to pick up the accreditation package for another Games participant.

Upon arrival at the Games, the Participant Accreditation Process and Games volunteers will direct you to luggage storage areas and accreditation check in processes. You will be given your accreditation badge, other important information entitling you to accommodation, meals, and transportation. 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.


GAMES ACCOMMODATION
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. Meals will be arranged for those participants who have arrived at the Games over a meal period.

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. Classrooms are used as dormitories with lots of spacing. 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.
