BC Soccer now accepting Scholarship and Awards nominations

Vancouver, BC:  BC Soccer is now accepting applications from the soccer community for its Annual Scholarships and Awards.  The deadline date for submissions being received for both is March 31, 2013.

Every year, BC Soccer is proud to award scholarships to a number of worthy individuals proceeding on to post-secondary education.  Last year, 13 youth players, coaches and referees from member associations across the Province received scholarships at the Awards and Scholarships Celebration held at a Vancouver Whitecaps FC MLS game at BC Place.

Emma Zapf-Gilje, from the Vancouver Youth Soccer Association, was the recipient of last year’s Uniglobe scholarship and said “I wanted to thank [BC Soccer and Uniglobe] very much for my scholarship and for supporting youth soccer so that I [have] the opportunity to play, ref and coach.  Soccer has always been a big part of my life and I feel so fortunate to have been a part of such great clubs and associations.”

Applications must be signed off by Youth District Chairperson or Adult League Presidents. The completed application can either be forwarded to BC Soccer by the Youth District/Adult League or the individual who is applying for the scholarship application.

BC Soccer also recognizes a number of exceptional volunteers within its membership.  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.

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.

Courtney Bardonner, Administrator of Upper Island Soccer Association and recipient of last year’s Administrator of the Year award said “It was a humbling experience to be recognized by my peers.  The awards ceremony at the Whitecaps game was a fun way for the award recipients to celebrate their love of soccer while recognizing their contributions to the sport in BC.”

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 with Stevenage Borough 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).
