BC Winter games are a provincially organized event hosted every 2 years in BC and in 2016 February 25-28 it will be in Penticton BC. These games are too provide an opportunity for the development of athletes, coaches and officials in preparation for higher levels of competition in a multi-sport environment which promotes interest and participation in sport and sporting activities, individual achievement, and community development. There are 8 zones mapped out in BC that participate (we’re Zone 6).
