The Athlete of the Year Awards, founded by Sport BC, is the longest standing sport recognition event in Canada.  Awards in 18 different categories are presented each year to athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers for their performance and contribution to sport in our province.  The awards play a valuable role in nurturing athletic success and recognizing some of BC’s growing talent.

We are proud to celebrate the athletes, dedicated coaches, devoted officials and amazing volunteers from all of our member Provincial Sport Organizations and sport sector partners in British Columbia.  For over 50 years, Sport BC has recognized legendary sport heroes and emerging stars.
