Registration Information:
There is a registration fee of $175 associated with the BC Summer Games. The $175 athlete registration fee covers the cost of travel to/from, and at the Games, meals, accommodation, your competition, special events, and entertainment. Triathlon BC is also working to create a BC Summer Games Triathlon specific item for athletes and there will be an extra cost associated with the games for this item.

Athlete Bursary Program:
The BC Games Society and Coast Capital Savings have teamed up to support the pursuit of achievement and leadership through a bursary program. Athletes (and youth coaches and officials) taking part in the Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games can apply to receive one of 16 bursaries in the amount of $500.

The bursary is intended to recognize athletes who have achieved in sport and education but, more importantly, go above and beyond in their communities through leadership and volunteer activities.  Youth coaches and officials (under 19 years of age) who are attending the Games as part of a development opportunity are also welcome to apply.

There will be 1 Head Coach and 1 Assistant Coach per zone.  Zone teams that include both male and female athletes, must have a Coach and Assistant Coach of the opposite gender.  Each zone is required to have a Head Coach.
