External Sports Credits
External Sport Credits may be available for athletes who participate in an ongoing training program that enables them to qualify for and/or participate in the BC Summer or BC Winter Games.
Credit is available for sports which have been approved by the Ministry of Education and as detailed on their website. The Sport Branch of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and and Culture has worked with Provincial Sport Organizations to identify which competition/selections athletes will earn credits.
For more information on the program and for a list of sports that qualify for these credits, go to the Ministry of Education website.
BC Games Participants whose sport is eligible for Athlete 10 External Sport Credentials must contact their Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) to verify participation in the BC Games and an ongoing training program. The PSO will provide a verification letter which must be presented to the school counsellor to obtain the credit. Contact information for PSOs are on the respective sport pages - select the BC Summer or BC Winter Games and then the sport.
