and Games Information
document that is included in your
registration confirmation package, outlines how you’ll get to Abbotsford and back home
again. Please read this thoroughly and bring it with you to the Games so you can
stay on top of travel plans. If you miss your bus or flight, it is your responsibility to get
yourself to the Games, at your own expense.
To ensure the safety and supervision of athletes during travel to and from the BC
Games, zone teams travel together on Games transportation (buses/flights) departing
from and returning to central pick-up locations. This ensures that every athlete is
supervised by an accredited adult (Head Coach, Assistant Coach, or Adult Supervisor)
from the time they board a bus/flight until the time they arrive at their destination.
Participants must provide their own transportation to/from the selected pick-up/
drop-off locations. The pick-up/drop-off location(s) may not be the closest one to
the participants’ homes, however, this is necessary to ensure proper safety and
supervision of athletes.
Participants from the Greater Vancouver area are required to make their own way
to the Games. Please check with your Coach, Zone Representative, or Provincial
Advisor to confirm your designated time for arrival so that you can connect with the
rest of your zone team.
It May Be a Long Trip
All participants travelling on BC Games transportation are scheduled to arrive in
Abbotsford no later than 11:00 am on Thursday, July 21. In order to arrive on time,
you may begin and/or end your journey late at night or early in the morning.
This travel schedule can be very tiring, so plan to get plenty of rest prior to departure
and use the travel time to mentally and
physically prepare for the competition that
begins early Friday.
