- Where are the 2022 Canada Summer Games Selection Trials? Jesse Bent Memoria Meet, Coquitlam, BC June 4-5, 2022
- How do I qualify for the 2022 Canada Summer Games? Please reference the Selection Criteria & Standards Document
- What are Automatic Standards and how do they work? Automatic Standards are designed to allow athletes who have performances at a certain level the opportunity to be selected to TeamBC, understanding that athletes may still have competitive obligations such as, but not limited to BC Teams, National Teams and University/College Teams. All athletes have the opportunity to be selected with these standards.
- What if I haven’t made either the Automatic Standard or the Team Standard? BC Athletics encourages all athletes to declare for TeamBC as it is a larger team (50 athletes). In many cases, we have selected athletes under Criteria 7 which can include athletes who are close to standard.
- Do National College/University Championships (NCAA, CIS, NAIA) count as a “Meet of Greater Importance”? Yes, since these are high level meets, and student-athletes have an obligation to their school to attend these meets upon qualifying, BC Athletics recognizes these meets as a meet of greater importance.
- What dates will TeamBC be travelling to and from the 2022 Canada Summer Games? August 14-22, 2022
