Sport Events

The TRU Conference Centre is located next door to The Tournament Capital Centre. This is a state-of-the-art sports facility that houses the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, TCC Field House, Hillside Stadium and a large fitness centre. Being so close to this world-class facility makes the TRU Conference Centre an ideal location for your next sporting event or camp.

With experience hosting and catering to the BC Lions, Volleyball BC, World Masters, NACAC and Western Canada Summer Games, the TRU Conference Centre prides itself in being experts when it comes to accommodating the needs of sport teams and sporting events.

We understand the complexities of athletes' diets and that not all athletes require the same thing. We are able to accommodate all meal requirements with custom menu options, specific to your team, which will work within your budget.

From May through August, the TRU Residence offers the perfect location for accommodation for sports teams, families, coaches, and officials at affordable rates for short and extended stays. With 20 one-bedroom suites, 140 two-bedroom suites and 30 four-bedroom suites, the TRU Residence is the ideal location for team accommodations.

With the TRU Conference Centre being a short five-minute walk to and from the Tournament Capital Centre and a minute-walk from the TRU Residence, your team can eat, sleep and train in one location, making it easy to focus on training or competing.
