Sport is the core of the BC Games and the reason participants, volunteers, and partners come together every two years. This competitive multi-sport experience is an essential part of the sport development pathway for athletes, coaches, and officials in British Columbia.
The sports in the Games are selected through the Core Sport policy, which showcases how Provincial Sport Organizations fit the Games within their overall sport development plans.
How Sports Make it into the Games
The Core Sport policy guides the process for inclusion in the BC Summer and BC Winter Games.
Key principles for inclusion in the Games include province-wide participation, gender equity among participants, competitive opportunities for athletes with a disability where the same level of opportunity for the same caliber of athletes is not available in other Games in BC, and are generally a one-time opportunity for all participants (a possible two-time experience for athletes with a disability).
