MMABC offers school memberships and is working hard towards bringing MMA into the PROVINCIAL SPORTING landscape thru membership in SportBC. To accomplish this WE ALL NEED TO BE UNIFIED!!!!
Promoters – MMABC is providing regulatory oversight for AMATEUR MMA competitions in BC. Promoters, GET INVOLVED, let the association know how best we can help you succeed.
MMABC has been representing the SPORT of AMATEUR MMA to municipal government. MMABC has been active in making presentations to government showing them that MMA can be a safe, positive pursuit both recreationally and competitively. It is important to show those that DO NOT participate and in many cases have a misconception of our sport that MMA is properly organized and regulated.
MMABC needs volunteers for many duties (officials, committees, treasurer, laywer). If youLOVE this sport and are able to help it grow PLEASE let us know your interest by coming out to the meeting and/or email me back with your interest in volunteering.
