Story

Thanks to $50,000 from the BC Sport Participation Program, Sport BC expanded its Power of Sport Tour to visit outlying areas of the province in 2004-2007. More than 20 provincial sport organizations in 17 communities across BC participated in two tours. The seven-day tours were offered in schools and community settings and included numerous coaching opportunities as well as community building celebrations. Through these tours, participants learned the value of sport participation and experienced different sport opportunities.


The BC Sport Participation Program aims to increase sport participation in community and school-based sports. From 2004-2007 the program gave more than $2 million to 22 sport organizations running programs in 109 communities for close to 85,000 participants and more than 4,600 coaches. The program is funded by the Province of British Columbia and Sport Canada.
