If you can give four hours or come out for the whole event, there is a position for you!!

Our competition days will be Friday and Saturday, July 7 and 8, with athletes participating in 5- & 10-pin bowling, swimming, track and field, golf, rhythmic gymnastics, powerlifting, bocce, basketball, soccer, and softball at amazing venues around Kamloops. The Opening Ceremony will be on Thursday evening (July 6) and are open to the public. On Saturday evening (July 8) there will be a closed victory dance for athletes and coaches! With so many activities, there is something for all volunteer interests.
