55+ BC Games "Give It A Try" Events Upcoming

October 1, 2019

The City of Fort St. John, in conjunction with the 55+ BC Games - Zone 12, is hosting a series of “Give It A Try” events on October 6, 20 and 27, 2019. 

This initiative offers free activities for members of our community aged 55+ to come together though sport and learn more about the 55+ Games. It also allows participants to learn about the services and programs at the local community centre in a fun and social environment, and provides an opportunity to try three different sports featured in the 55+ BC Games.

These events are supported through financial contributions from the BC Recreation and Parks Association, the BC Senior Games Society, the Province of British Columbia, and the Government of Canada.

About the 55+ BC Games:
The BC Seniors Games Society (BCSGS) was founded in 1987 as a registered charitable organization serving all British Columbians aged 55 and over. The primary focus of the Society is the staging of the annual 55+ BC Games, a five day, province-wide multi-sport event hosted by a different community each year. The 55+ BC Games feature a mix of over 25 competitive sport events and activities. The Society is comprised of 12 Zones, which host local competitions to determine the eligibility of participants for the annual provincial games.
