The BC Winter Games are BC’s premier multi-sport event for young athletes, coaches, and officials. Taking place every two years, the next Games will be in Vernon, postponed from 2022 to March 23-26, 2023. Archery is a "core sport" in the BC Winter Games which gives our athletes a unique opportunity to compete in a multi-sport event.
This is your opportunity to train to represent your zone at the BC Games. Athletes who shoot Compound, Recurve or Barebow, who were between 15-17 years of age as at December 31, 2022 are eligible to quality for the BC Winter Games (born in 2005, 2006, or 2007). See the technical package for details.
There are eight zones in the province. See what zone your home community is in and cheer for your Zone team!
If selected to a Zone team, athletes will be required to pay a $225 registration fee.
Transportation will be arranged by the Games for pick-up within your Zone. Transportation will primarily be in the form of a charter bus (parts of Zones 7 & 8 will be on charter planes). Once finalized, a detailed travel summary will be available from the participant's profile in the BC Games database. For now, we know that there will be WEDNESDAY (March 22) travel for Zone 6 (on a charter bus) and Zone 8-North (FSJ, via plane). All others will travel on Thursday to Vernon, arriving by noon. Return travel for ALL zones will be on Sunday afternoon/evening.
Official Schedule will be posted once approved by the Games.

Planning for the next Games has already begun! Quesnel, BC is the next town to host this event, February 22-25, 2024. These Games will be open to those athletes born in 2007, 2008, and 2009.
To help offset the registration costs, we have set up a fundraiser, where $10 of every Epicure Weekend Collection box sold will be shared evenly among the athletes named to the 2024 Games team. Click here for more information and here to place your order to support our up-and-coming athletes!
