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 Quesnel, February 22-25, 2024. 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 are between 15-17 years of age as at December 31, 2024 are eligible to quality for the BC Winter Games (born in 2007, 2008, or 2009). 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 (Zone 1 and Zone 6 will be on charter flights). Once finalized, a detailed travel summary will be available on the BC Games Participant Website (each participant will receive a letter in the mail with login details by Feb 1 2024). All Zones will travel to Quesnel on Wednesday, February 21. Return travel for all Zones will be on the afternoon/evening of Sunday, February 25.

The Provincial Advisor has been fundraising ahead of the Trials and team selection. Fundraising efforts have included the sale of Epicure Fundraiser boxes and 50/50 draws at Championship events. Any amounts raised by the PA will be shared evenly among the athletes named to the 2024 Games team to offset the registration fee.
Zone teams are encouraged to do further fundraising events.

Fundraising will continue after the Quesnel games to support the archers attending the 2026 Trail/Rossland Games.
BC Winter Games Zone Trials locations
Trials will be held no later than December 10th. Selected athletes will be notified by December 31st.
All competitors must be BC Archery members. Click here for an explanation of how the team is selected.
Athletes may attend a Trials event in a different Zone, and may attend more than one. However, only one score is allowed for Zone Team selection consideration. If attending at more than one Trials event, the athlete must declare to the organizer BEFORE THE FIRST ARROW IS SHOT whether or not that event's score is the one they wish to be submitted. (If more than one score is received by the Provincial Advisor without a clear declaration, the lowest score will be used)
