It was tears and cheers for players as Prince George, North Vancouver, and Langley hosted the BC Soccer Youth Provincial Championships

Vancouver, BC July 8, 2013 – The weather was almost perfect and the competition was intense as teams from across the province battled for gold in the BC Soccer Youth Provincial Championships this past weekend.  Prince George, North Vancouver and Langley hosted the Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Cup, Provincial Girls B Cup, and the Provincial A Cup.  Much like in previous years there were tears, celebrations and upsets, but this year was definitely one to remember as Special Olympics BC (SOBC) and Vancouver Whitecaps FC joined in on the championships all while two different referee courses and assessments took place in Langley and North Vancouver during the Girls Provincial B Cup and the Provincial A Cup competitions.

“The entire weekend was an amazing experience for all of the participants and it was made even better with additional activations by Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Special Olympics BC,” said Don Dancey Youth Competitions Committee Chair. “The level of play was unbelievable again this year and all of the players that competed should be truly proud.”

Special Olympics BC (SOBC) had eight teams playing for gold, silver, and bronze at the Provincial Championships making for an unforgettable experience for players and fans. Four SOBC teams competed in Prince George while another four traveled to North Vancouver to gain some competition experience before heading to the Special Olympics BC Summer Games.
 
Langley was host to an array of activities including a wonderful match between Vancouver Whitecaps FC Reserves and Seattle Sounders FC Reserves.  The Sunday match finished 4-0 for the Whitecaps FC Reserves and it featured many Whitecaps FC players including Darren Mattocks who scored a beautiful goal the night before in the 2-0 win over the Seattle Sounders FC at BC Place.  Vancouver Whitecaps FC players Brad Knighton and Jordan Harvey were also on hand in Langley and North Vancouver to present awards to some of the youth provincial medalists.  In addition to all of the events surrounding the Provincial Championships 1,500 youth players including Special Olympics BC players attended the Saturday night MLS match between Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Seattle Sounders FC.
 
“Partnering with both of these great organizations created an unbelievable atmosphere at the Provincial Championships and we really look forward to continuing to work with them in the future,” said Roger Barnes, President of BC Soccer. “I had the privilege of attending all of the Youth Provincial Championships and I would like to extend a thank you to the host communities, all of the sponsors, volunteers, and referees that helped make this event possible.”

Two separate referee courses took place over the weekend as North Vancouver hosted a female specific referee course with international referees offering support and feedback while Langley hosted a referee symposium which included both class room and practical training.
