About Sport BC
In 1966, a small group of dedicated volunteers created an organization to provide a unified voice for amateur sport in British Columbia. While much has changed in 46 years, our core purpose remains the same.
Who we are:
Sport BC is the non-profit sport federation, representing over 60 Provincial Sport Organizations in British Columbia. As a member-based organization, Sport BC offers services and programs to build the capacity of our members and advocate on their behalf to improve the landscape for organized sport in BC.
As a leader in the sport system, Sport BC strengthens and builds the capacity of the Provincial Sport Organization in order to encourage and foster the growth of sport in British Columbia.
Sport BC is regarded as an effective, ethical organization that is viewed as a leader provincially in the area of organized sport.
We envision a strong amateur sport community in BC that works together to provide quality opportunities for athletic development and achievement, and build healthy communities.
Trust, Integrity, Team Work, Transparency
