2915 Participants ready for the 2022 BC Summer Games

The Prince George 2022 BC Summer Games kick off in less than one month and 2915 of BC’s best emerging high performance athletes, coaches, and officials are ready to be part of this celebration of sport and community from July 21-24.
The 2303 athletes hail from 170 communities across the province and represent every constituency in BC. Competing in 18 different sports, the athletes are an average age of 14 years old and for most, this will be their first experience at a multi-sport Games.
These athletes will be supported by 451 certified coaches and 161 officials, tasked with providing a safe and competitive environment for athletes.
“The host society in Prince George has done amazing work preparing for these Games and this is just one more step towards what will be an excellent event in July,” said Alison Noble, President and CEO of the BC Games Society. “All of our participants have worked extremely hard to get to these Games and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them.”
Volunteers in Prince George have been preparing for the past 18 months to host the Games.  Community volunteers will come together to ensure the participants have exceptional competition and a first-rate experience with an Opening Ceremony and Closing Celebration, special events, and wonderful hospitality. 
“We can’t wait to welcome these athletes, coaches, and officials to our city and make this a memorable event,” said Renee McCloskey, President of the Prince George 2022 BC Summer Games. “Our community has come together to put on these Games and take advantage of a chance to showcase the unique culture and spirit of Prince George to the rest of BC.”
The BC Winter and Summer Games has been the starting point for many athletes who have gone on to higher levels of sport. BC Summer Games alumni who competed in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics include Madison Mailey (Rowing), Bo Hedges (Wheelchair Basketball), Julia Grosso (Soccer), and Brent Hayden (Swimming). Prince George’s own Meryeta O'Dine (Snowboardcross), a BC Winter Games alumna, recently won a pair of bronze medals for Canada at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.
