CANADA SOCCER CONCUSSION POLICY
BC Soccer is pleased to share Canada Soccer’s recently distributed Concussion Policy. Please find this document attached and on BC Soccer’s website: https://bcsoccer.net/bylaws
 
BC SOCCER OFFICE CLOSURE
Please note that BC Soccer’s physical office (3410 Lougheed Hwy, Vancouver, BC) will be closed Saturday, December 22nd, 2018 and will reopen on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Email and voicemail will be monitored during this time; however your patience is appreciated should there be any delay in response.
 

DISCIPLINE

Team Officials must not submit reds and yellows – that’s the game official’s job.
We need to guarantee the integrity of the reports and we are not prepared to lose a discipline case that goes to appeal because we’re assuming that the report was submitted by the game official.
 
One of the problems that we’ve had to deal with is lateness of reports and more importantly – lack of information.  Referees must give us complete reports – not just, for instance, “swore at the referee.” What exactly did he say? Why would he have said it? ETC.
 
Please see the document from the Discipline Committee below.

SCHEDULES ARE NOW POSTED

BCCSL Announcement

The BC Coastal Soccer League (BCCSL) is pleased to confirm further additions to the staff and operations team, with the ultimate goal of enhancing and streamlining its professional operations.

The BCCSL is excited to announce the hiring of Gordon Quan as the new Head Scheduler.  In this important role, Gordon will work closely with district and club schedulers to ensure an efficient and organized schedule for all BCCSL teams.  As the League Manager and Scheduler for the BC Coastal Girls Soccer League (BCCGSL) for the last 4 years, Gordon has experience working with complex schedules and all eight district members of the BCCSL, and that background will be invaluable working with the BCCSL’s numerous divisions and requirements.

An Operations Committee was a key component to ensuring efficient operations in all areas, and the BCCSL has now confirmed those that were nominated and accepted these important roles.  The committee is led by the BCCSL Administrator, Matt Holbrook, and is comprised of the following positions and personnel:

Head Scheduler:  Gordon Quan
Discipline:  Jackie Larson
Treasurer:  Pasquale Balletta
Secretary:  Sarb Lidder
Protests & Appeals:  Fari Fuladi 
Competitions:  Bill Ede

While the committee’s main goals are to facilitate the operations and delivery of all divisions within the BCCSL, the Operations Committee will also be responsible for delivering against agreed BCCSL priorities, and reviewing and providing recommendations for potential league rule amendments to the BCCSL Board.

About the BC Coastal Soccer League
The BC Coastal Soccer League (BCCSL) is a newly formed league that has amalgamated the former youth leagues that operated in the Lower Mainland. Those leagues were BCCSL Boys, Metro/Select League (MSL) and BC Coastal Girls Soccer League (BCCGSL). It comprises approximately 21,000 youth and all 8 Lower Mainland districts.

The League provides, facilitates and supports playing environments for males and females in the Under 11 and 12 divisions 1-2, and Under 13 to Under 18 age categories, consisting of Metro to division 3.  The League works closely with BC Soccer and the BCSPL to help develop the game and actively promote players while ensuring the ongoing integrity of each level of play.
