Team BC is the group of athletes, coaches and mission staff who represent the Province of British Columbia at Canada’s premier multisport Games – the Canada Winter Games and Canada Summer Games.
Team BC athletes and coaches are the best in their age group and the Games are a key development opportunity to wards future national and international competitions. Alumni of Team BC have competed on the world stage and include athletes like Brent Hayden (2012 Olympic Bronze Medallist – Swimming) and Kelsey Serwa (2014 Olympic silver medallist – Ski Cross).
The Team BC program is a collaborative effort of partners to prepare, select and service the athletes and coaches to ensure optimal performance at the Games. The Province of BC provides funding for the program which is managed by the BC Games Society with integration with Canadian Sport Institute-Pacific and Sport Med BC.
Team BC is about getting to know other Canadians and creating a lifetime of memories for participants in one of Canada's greatest celebrations of sport. The Canada Games are a national multi-sport competition with participation from every province and territory in Canada and take place on an alternating summer/winter cycle every four years.
