BC Soccer Presents FYI video on registration fees and how the Association is funded

Every year, BC Soccer receives numerous inquiries and comments about registration fees

January 23, 2020 - Vancouver BC

For some parents and players in this Province, we are nearing soccer registration season.  You may already know that BC Soccer is a non-profit, membership organization which includes Youth Districts, Adult Leagues and non-voting Associate Members.

What you might not know, is where the money goes when you register your child, or yourself in sanctioned soccer activity in our Province.

We hope this video will explain how BC Soccer is funded, who establishes the registration fees, and what happens to that money.
