Delta’s Eron Main has been named as the chef de mission for Team BC at next year’s Canada Summer Games.

On Wednesday (April 24), the BC Games Society, which is responsible for the Team BC program, announced Main and assistant chef de mission Brianna Davey will lead a team of up to 25 mission staff and a contingent of more than 485 athletes, coaches and managers at the Games, which will take place in St. John’s, N.L. from Aug. 8-24, 2025.

“We are fortunate to have two proven and experienced professionals to lead our team in Eron and Brianna,” Team BC operations manager Jarret Poitras said in a press release.

“The upcoming Games in St. John’s will be an incredible opportunity to continue to build on past successes and to develop the sport leaders of tomorrow on our mission staff team. Eron and Brianna have the energy, skills and leadership qualities that will be essential to bringing our goals and values to life.”

Main is bringing a strong background in sport to his new role, including senior leadership roles at the International Wheelchair Rugby Federation (now World Wheelchair Rugby) and Rowing BC. Main has also attended 29 international or national games in a variety of roles, including three Canada Summer Games (2013, 2017, 2022) as sport mission staff.

“I have always thought that the Team BC program is a major factor in the success of B.C. athletes,” Main said in a press release. “It provides excellent competitive experiences for young athletes and prepares them for future success nationally and internationally.”

As chef de mission, Main will fill the roles of team leader, official spokesperson, and cheerleader for the Team BC contingent and — in consultation with Davey, BC Games Society staff, the Canada Games Council, and the 2025 Canada Games Host Society — will help co-ordinate the overall direction of Team BC’s participation in the Games.

“After being on mission staff for three Canada Games, I am honoured to be leading Team BC in St. John’s,” Main said. “The ‘team behind the team’ makes a huge difference for our athletes. I look forward to helping them have a first-class Games experience.”

Davey, meanwhile, has ample experience at the Canada Games, having served as sport mission staff at the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games and the PEI 2023 Canada Winter Games. She also attended the 2019 Canada Winter Games as director of operations for the Team BC female hockey program.

Her bio states that during her 10 years with BC Hockey, the Victoria-based Davey has been involved in the high-performance program, facilitating large camps and providing positive experiences for athletes wishing to compete at a higher level.

“I am very honored and privileged to be selected to assist and lead Team BC through the 2025 Summer Games with Eron and the leadership team,” Davey, who currently serves as vice president of member services – minor and female at BC Hockey, said in a press release.

“I have enjoyed my two opportunities as a mission staff, and I am excited to support all mission and operations staff through the Games to ensure they have a great experience.”

The Team BC leadership team will now work to recruit and select a mission staff team, with those volunteer opportunities expected to be made public before the end of April.
