BC Summer Games


At the BC Summer Games, athletes (under 16 years old as of January 1 in the year of the Games) are encouraged to participate in multi-discipline paddling events: canoe (singles, doubles and fours), kayak (singles, doubles, and fours).

We also ensure athletes just entering the sport have a positive experience by providing a multi-stream competition. To encourage development all age eligible athletes are able to experience a Games opportunity in both a 'Learn to Train' and subsequent 'Train to Train' category.
