Valley First/UBC Athletics Scholarship Breakfast 

Supporting Student Athletes in the Okanagan

UBC Okanagan Athletics

The University of British Columbia provides students with more than a world-class education.

Our varsity athletics program at UBC's Okanagan campus features nationally recognized coaches, outstanding facilities, and high-quality competitive opportunities. With membership in both the U SPORTS (men's and women's basketball, cross-country running, soccer and volleyball), the Canadian Collegiate Athletics' Association (CCAA) (men's and women's golf), and club competition for men's and women's rugby, UBC's Okanagan campus is committed to post-secondary sport.

Our goal is attracting high-achieving students with the athletic ability required to be competitive at the national level. We recruit these students from within the Okanagan Valley, throughout the province and across the country.  Our Athletics Scholarship Endowment helps us provide the financial assistance needed to support these outstanding UBC student athletes.

Thanks to all who enjoyed the 13th Annual Valley First / UBC Athletics Breakfast.

Another sell-out has upped the total value of the scholarship endowment to $850,000 for UBC student athletes on Friday, April 6, 2018. Read More
