BC Games Society announces sport package for Maple Ridge 2024 BC Summer Games

The BC Games Society has announced the full contingent of sports that will take part in the Maple Ridge 2024 BC Summer Games from July 18 to 21, 2024.


The 19 sports named will bring over 3,500 athletes, coaches, and officials to Maple Ridge, which has hosted the BC Summer Games twice previously in 1983 and 1998. The city was set to host the 2020 BC Summer Games before the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2024 BC Summer Games will mark the debut of the sport of Ultimate at the Games. The BC Ultimate Society (BCUS) boasts a strong participant base from every corner of the province and has built a strong culture around the principles of inclusion, respect, and accessibility.

Inclusion in the Games is determined by the BC Games Core Sport Policy, which outlines the criteria that provincial sport organizations must meet and ensures that the Games continue to deliver exceptional experiences through sport to young athletes from all over the province.

The BC Winter and BC Summer Games are British Columbia’s biennial celebration of sport and community. Since 1978, the BC Games have had over 350,000 participants and volunteers, plus thousands more attend as spectators and supporters.

Alison Noble, President and CEO, BC Games Society
“The sports in the BC Games are held to a high standard through our Core Sport Policy, and their inclusion is a result of the hard work that provincial sport organizations are doing to grow their sports and develop inclusive and positive cultures. We are excited to welcome BC Ultimate into the fold for the first time in the history of the Games and to watch the sport grow with this opportunity.”

Brian Gisel, General Manager, BC Ultimate
“BC Ultimate is excited to be included in the 2024 BC Summer Games. This opportunity comes after a continued effort to grow the sport in schools for the past 20 years. This spring, we were thrilled to have more than 120 High Schools in BC playing the sport under the BC School Sports umbrella. The sport is also growing in popularity among Elementary and Middle schools. Inclusion in the BC Summer Games will help promote the game and continue the growth of disc sports among junior athletes around the province.”

Non Ha, Executive Director, BC Wrestling
“The BC Games are a valuable stage in the development of athletes and coaches in pursuit of excellence. Many successful wrestlers have benefited from BC Games experience and progressed to prestigious international multisport events, including Olympic Gold Medalist Carol Huynh. BC Wrestling and our participants celebrate the spirit of the Games, and we are excited to continue to contribute to a positive, respectful, inclusive, and accessible environment through sport.”
