Awards & Scholarships

It takes a lot of special people to provide the soccer experience for the game’s participants, with volunteers accounting for the vast majority. Some sacrifice time with their own families in order to create positive environments for others and are deserving of awards recognition. And for players transitioning from the Youth to Adult game, BC Soccer’s scholarship program supports Grade 12 students in soccer who are seeking post-secondary education.


BC Soccer in conjunction with member nominations, provides annual awards for outstanding service to our game. The majority of these awards are typically tied to the current season of play, and nominations are submitted electronically by membership and/or Board recommendations. If you know someone within your organization who goes above and beyond to serve soccer in the community, you can check back to this page for updates on application and awards nomiations. For more information, please contact BC Soccer's Club Engagment Coordinator Reid Calder.
