Below is the Metro Application for the 2019-2020 Season.  Deadline to receive the application is January 31, 2019.


BC Soccer would like to make you aware of the following:
In follow up to the BC Soccer Board of Directors meeting on December 8, 2018, please be advised that BC Soccer has updated it’s Rules and Regulations. Please note the specific amendments highlighted below:


e)      No Youth Team shall display tobacco, liquor or cannabis advertising.


a)     BC Soccer shall oversee and/or operate youth and/or adult BC Soccer High Performance Leagues.
b)     Any BC Soccer High Performance League shall create such rules as necessary for the operation of the league subject to the approval of BC Soccer, such rules to be submitted to BC Soccer a minimum of 90 days prior to their implementation for approval of the Board of Directors of BC Soccer.
i)       The Board of Directors of BC Soccer may waive the 90-day provision without prejudice and solely at their discretion.
ii)      Unless specifically stated in Rule 26, the League rules shall be consistent with the balance of the rules and regulations of BC Soccer.
iii)    Leagues shall operate under the principles of the CSA/BC Soccer Long Term Player Development program as amended from time to time.
c)      For the purposes of development only, a technical staff member of a BCHPL team shall be permitted to approach the Technical Director responsible for any other teams to request permission to contact players of that team to offer an opportunity for promotion, such permission shall not be unreasonably withheld. Any other contact shall be deemed as poaching as described in Rule 6.
BC Soccer is pleased to share Canada Soccer’s recently distributed Concussion Policy. Please find this document attached and on BC Soccer’s website:
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.


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.


 FOR DIVISION 1, 2 AND 3 U11 - U18 and U10 GIRLS

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.

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.
