SportMedBC is a professional not-for-profit society comprised of close to 750 sport medical and paramedical practitioners in British Columbia. It promotes leadership, public awareness and education in the areas of sport medicine, sport science and sport training. It does so by providing access to Sport Medicine experts through its Directory, delivering Sport Safety workshops, and facilitating RunWalk programs throughout the province.
Our mission is to support health and performance through sport & exercise, with the “Best People, Best Practices, and Best Programs” in Sport Medicine and Exercise Science for all British Columbians.
The organization continues to deliver its mandate through the strength of program partnerships with the Province of British Columbia (Sport Branch), BC Ministry of Health (Aboriginal Health Directorate), the British Columbia Gaming Commission, and ViaSport. It has reached new levels of professionalism and scope through its community programming and creative partnerships with organizations such as ISPARC, Fortius Sport & Health, RBC GranFondo Whistler, and PostMedia Inc.. Community partnerships exist with the BC Games Society, Doctors of BC (Athletics & Recreation Committee), BC Injury Prevention Alliance, BC Concussion Advisory Network, and the Centre for Hip Health & Mobility.
SportMedBC’s RunWalk Manager, Jenny Soderman, and RunWalk Coach Lynn Kanuka are here to support you through the next 13 weeks of InTraining – so please don’t hesitate to contact them at any time!
