BC Soccer is accepting Awards Nominations 2015

Vancouver, BC:  BC Soccer recognizes a number of exceptional volunteers within its membership annually by way of the BC Soccer Awards Program.  These award winners represent the hundreds of volunteers across the province who are the heart of soccer in BC. They are the individuals who administer, coach, officiate, schedule whom without; the players of BC would not be able to participate in our beautiful game.

We are pleased to inform the membership of the association that we are currently accepting nominations until the submission deadline date of March 31, 2015.

Selection of the award recipients is based on many factors including the individual’s commitment, community involvement and willingness to give back to the game.

In recognition of their outstanding achievements at the Provincial, National and International level, awards are also presented to the top youth and adult players and officials from our membership base. Future recipients will hope to follow in the footsteps of notable past winners including Marcus Haber (English Division 1 Player and Canadian Men’s national team), Michelle Pye (FIFA Women’s World Cup referee) and Christine Sinclair (current Captain and all-time leading goal scorer on the Canadian Women’s National team).

BC Soccer Fair Play Award sponsored by Clarkes

BC Soccer would also like to remind our members that we have teamed up with Clarkes Recognition Products Ltd for a three year partnership.  The partnership includes a BC Soccer Fair Play award which will be sponsored by Clarkes and will be presented at the BC Soccer awards ceremony.

Throughout the year, leagues, clubs, teams, and players can submit nominations for the BC Soccer Fair Play award.  Although the final award will not be handed out until the awards ceremony, BC Soccer will showcase award nominees on our website and social media channels to help promote fair play throughout the year.
