The Legacy Performance Games were created as a legacy of the Kamloops 2011 Western Canada Summer Games, which Kamloops hosted in August 2011.
The Legacy Performance Games are not intended to replace existing multi-sport games opportunities. Instead, they aim to offer a games experience to athletes that may haved missed out on high-level competitions such as the BC Games or the Canada Games because of age cutoffs or delayed sport entry.
Wheelchair Rugby and Wheelchair Tennis are both included in the Kamloops Legacy Games.
The 2018 Kamloops Legacy Games run from July 27-29.
