The Kamloops 2006 BC Summer Games Board of Directors is pleased to announce that a legacy of $100,000 will remain in the community as a result of a budget surplus from staging the BC Summer Games in July, 2006.

The BC Summer Games Sport Development Grant will be available to local coaches, officials and sport organizations interested in furthering their knowledge in their respective areas. Examples may include: a Level III coach pursuing Level IV certification; an Umpire taking training to learn to instruct other Umpires; a sport organization presenting a high-profile "Keynote Speaker" that might be of value to numerous individuals.

The interest earned on the balance will provide the annual grant and will grow each subsequent year, "giving back" to the sport leaders in our community for years to come.  Reviews are held quarterly.
