Basic guidelines for these events are as follows:
Please send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org
BCDS thanks you all in advance for your support, and we look forward to working together to grow the sport and the series.

On June 30,2021 the BC Government updated Provincial Health Orders regarding COVID-19 and the return to sport plans that apply to our sport. We are currently in Phase Three of the Provincial Guidelines, which allows us to return to competition with minimal restrictions as described in the Phase Three Guideline.
This document will be continuously reviewed in conjunction with mandates from the Provincial Health Authority and the phase appropriate edition of viaSport’s Return to Sport Guidelines.
Good Day BC Discgolfers
On March 18th, our BC Government updated Provincial Health Orders regarding COVID-19 and the restrictions that apply to our sport. Under the current restrictions, we can have up to 10 people come together to play an outdoor sport.
For now, and till such time as the PHO, VIA SPORTS and the BCDS advises, the current regulations apply to all BC Discgolf players.
Note that under the current PHO:
The BCDS is working to develop a dynamic schedule to be announced soon; this will include events that we plan on hosting as soon as the PHO is amended and we are back to Phase 3 (Return to Sports) within BC. I am in contact with VIA Sports, and they are continuing to work with government to develop the next phase of return to sport because there are no current plans to return to phase three in the near future. While we recognize that some events/dates may have to be cancelled due to the circumstances, we want to provide some light at the end of the “rainbow” for BC Players, so please stay tuned for announcements from the BCDS.
As we wait for a return to normalcy, I would like to continue to encourage all BC players to embrace and mentor all new players that COVID-19 has brought to the sport. We are an amazing group of diverse Discgolfers, and if we all take a moment and introduce ourselves, club(s) and the BCDS to these new players, it will ensure that they are aware of the basic rules of Discgolf, current COVID regulations and course etiquette, allowing us to nurture and grow the sport through these difficult times.
Good day fellow BC Disc golfers,
As we navigate these challenging times it is imperative that we all abide by our Provincial Health Orders and the BCDS Return to Sport plan to ensure that we stay safe and our sport can be played.
We want all BC players to know that the board is committed to keeping all our players safe with our Return to Sport plan. In order to do this, we need each one of you to stay up to date with the daily updates from the provincial and local entities on the restrictions, as these are dynamic and changing daily.
The BCDS strongly encourages all BC players to only play at their local (i.e. home) course within their local community, while adhering to all COVID-19 protocols and provincial health orders.
Please do not travel to other courses for friendly or league rounds.
While measures to this extent may not be included in the existing health orders, we need to set a good example and do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19.
The BCDS realizes this this is not a part of the order, but it is what we all need to do to keep Disc golf courses open for play.
Please take a moment to review the full order and reach out to your local City, Township, Parks Board for direction on how this affects your local park/clubs.
,The current Provincial Health Order issued on 11/19/202 states the following regarding outdoor sports:
Sports games, competitions and practices
Games, competitions, and practices can continue with no spectators and no travel.
We are in via Sport’s Return to Sport Phase 3 with the exception of no spectators and no travel.
No spectators are allowed at any sport activities under the order. The only people allowed to attend sport activities are those that provide care to a participant or player. For example, providing first aid.
Travel for athletic activities
Travel to, from, and between communities for athletic activities like games, competitions, training, and practice is prohibited under this order.
