Victoria, BC – The Victoria City Police Athletic Association wrapped up its annual high school golf tournament at Olympic View Golf Course today. 

Open to high school students throughout British Columbia, the purpose of the tournament is to foster positive relationships between the police and the youth of our community, while supporting youth in achieving excellence in sport. The two-day tournament has been running since 1985 and hosted over 130 students representing 23 different schools across British Columbia.  

The tournament ends with an award ceremony which includes food, prizes, and awards. It was a banner year for Claremont Secondary golfers as their team took first place and received the coveted trophy. St. George’s school came in second and Wellington Secondary placed third overall. 

Thank you to all the young golfers that gave it their all on the greens, the VicPD officers for volunteering their time, Olympic View Golf Course for hosting the event, all of our sponsors and B&C Foods for their generous donation.
