The Hosting BC program, funded by the provincial government, is providing a grant of $4,000 to Sicamous Minor Softball to assist the organization as it plays host to the U18B girls provincial softball championship July 8 to 10.

“Hosting BC has been providing financial assistance to competitive-level sporting events in the Shuswap for many years,” Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo said. “This support has been a huge benefit to several local organizations and our sport tourism industry.”

Sports organizations throughout B.C. will share $145,247 in the latest round of program funding from Hosting BC. These grants will support the setup and operation of international, national, provincial and club championships, tournaments and tour stops for sports such as racquetball, wrestling, swimming, fastball, equestrian, canoe/kayak, and taekwondo.

Since 2004, the provincial government – through Hosting BC – has invested more than $5.3 million in community-based sporting events throughout the province.
