Happy Holidays
BC Soccer wishes all involved in our beautiful game here in BC, all the best over the holidays! More than 115,000 registered players enjoyed the game in BC this past year and we want to thank all the volunteers, administrators, coaches, referees, and parents who help make that happen. It is great to celebrate what soccer brings to those involved and the positive impact it makes within our individual and collective communities. 2017 has been another great year for soccer in BC and we look forward to the new year ahead to continue to develop, support, and grow the game in collaboration with our members, affiliated, and development partners! 
All the best for a safe and happy holiday season!
