BC Turf Management Summer Field Day Ready for Launch - Delegate Registration Officially Open!


Registration for the British Columbia Turf Management Summer Field Day, hosted by the City of Kamloops & Kamloops Golf & Country Club on July 26 & 27, 2022 and co-produced by the Western Canada Turfgrass Association (WCTA) and Sports Turf Canada (STC) is NOW OPEN!

After a lengthy hiatus for well-known reasons, we are very excited for our first summer field day since 2019 taking place Wednesday, July 27, 2022 at McArthur Island Park in Kamloops, BC, with a golf outing planned for Tuesday, July 26, hosted by the Kamloops Golf & Country Club.

“A two-day event should be an immediate clue that this won’t be your average field day,” stated WCTA President Gary Bartley of UBC Athletics.  He added, “It’s been a long time in the making and we wanted to add another dimension by turning this into a much more social event.  Come for the whole thing, just the education and outdoor trade show or whatever you decide, but we are looking forward to gathering safely, in-person, in the ‘Tournament Capital of Canada’ this coming summer.”

Our sports field training days are an opportunity to come out to the field, listen to experts who know best maintenance practices, talk to others who do what you do, meet the suppliers and see what products and services  they provide and watch as they demonstrate them for you.  And of course enjoy a great lunch during your training day.


For accommodation, we have secured a 15% room rate reduction at the Holiday Inn & Suites Kamloops located at 675 Tranquille Road, just a few minutes drive from our venue.  CLICK HERE TO BOOK

CEC/CEU applications for BC and Alberta in progress.
