“We are excited that participants from every corner of the province will have a chance to come together and experience the BC Summer Games,” said Alison Noble, BC Games Society President and CEO. “Volunteers have been hard at work with planning for more than a year as Maple Ridge gets set to put on a unique celebration of sport during their 150th anniversary.”

The Maple Ridge Games are the 33rd iteration of the Summer Games. The event is taking place on traditional territory of the Katzie (q̓ic̓əy̓) First Nation and Kwantlen (qʼʷa:n̓ƛʼən̓) First Nation. Volunteers from the host community have been preparing for the last 18 months to welcome participants and put on a celebration of community and sport. Over 1,100 local volunteers have already signed up to support attendees at Games time.

The BC Winter and BC Summer Games have been the starting point for many athletes who have gone on to higher levels of sport. Many Olympians and Paralympians have attended the Games, including Julia Grosso (soccer), Brent Hayden (swimming), Bo Hedges (wheelchair basketball), Maidon Mailey (rowing), and Maple Ridge’s own Karina LeBlanc (soccer).
