The inclusion of ultimate in the BC Summer Games follows years of growth of the sport at the High School and Junior levels across the province of British Columbia. In 2023 over 100 High Schools registered teams with BC School Sports, and the number of teams and communities with Junior Club programs continues to grow each year. BC Ultimate, the Provincial Sports Organization responsible for ultimate in BC, is proud of the growth of the sport and the inclusion of ultimate at the 2024 BC Summer Games.
