Whether you are playing sports to compete, achieve your personal best, derive health benefits or have fun, there are many ways to be involved in sport in your community.
British Columbia has a proud tradition of establishing B.C. athletes on the national or international stage.
From local tournaments to international competitions, B.C. plays host to many sport events. These events showcase the natural beauty of B.C., our people, hospitality and amenities and provide tourism and economic benefits. They also give our athletes home field advantage and reduce training and competing costs.
Provincial government funding for sport is generally targeted to province-wide sport and multi-sport organizations (such as Basketball BC, BC Wheelchair Sports and Canadian Sport Institute Pacific) which receive grants for participation and/or performance initiatives.
Sport can provide important health and social benefits to all those involved. Life-long learning, enjoyment and participation in sport comes from a culture which is fun, positive, ethical and safe. These resources can help create a safer environment for sport.
