The Hall of Fame was established to honour outstanding Bow Valley athletes, championship teams and sport builders as well as preserving the history of Bow Valley sport.The new Hall builds on the good work of the Banff Sports Hall of Fame, which was established in 2005, but has been inactive since 2008.
The mission of the Bow Valley Sports Hall of Fame is threefold:
To honor individuals and teams from the Bow Valley who have distinguished themselves in sport, recreation or mountain pursuits
