BC’s network of provincial, local, and community organizations and clubs allows athletes to play individual and team sports — indoors or outdoors — all year.

Participating in sport helps athletes become well-rounded, versatile, and mentally and physically resilient, which benefits them on and off the field.

Playing multiple sports offers numerous advantages. Variety helps prevent overuse injuries from playing the same sport year-round, and it develops balance, agility, coordination, and endurance.

Playing different sports can also help prevent burnout, keep athletes engaged, and promote a lifelong love of physical activity.
