The BCSSA AGM this past week-end in Richmond got off to a great start with the presentation of the annual awards. Athletes, coaches, officials, staff and volunteers were recognized for all their contributions and successes this past season. Awards not collected by attending delegates, will be mailed out from the BCSSA Office within the week.

Congratulations to all this years winners!   And thank-you to our hard working Awards Committee, Louise and Mae.
