BC Soccer wishes good luck to participants kicking off Coastal Season this weekend

September’s arrival brings excitement for those starting their seasons, while the Northern and Interior campaigns reach their climactic conclusions.

Sept 8, 2021 – Vancouver BC

If you love soccer, there really is nothing more exciting than opening weekend and the first “real” games of the season.  The Interior and Northern regions already experienced that feeling over the Spring/Summer, and now in the Coastal Region, it’s GAME-ON for both youth and adult players. 

Seeing training sessions under floodlit skies, and goalposts placed on freshly mown pitches, heralds not only a change of season, but also the hopeful, comforting feeling of getting back to a regular routine.

After so much disruption over the past 18 months, the excitement of seeing players returning and now having “normal-looking” schedules released, ramps up the anticipation and sense of optimism that much more. 

BC Soccer is focused on inspiring “Positive Soccer Experiences” as our vision statement in the 2024 Strategic Plan.  Everyone involved in the sport across the Province should benefit from the health, happiness and sense of community that soccer provides its participants. 

The pandemic taught us to never take things for granted and appreciate what we have and love the most.    

So enjoy this weekend to the fullest.  Good luck to you and your team-mates wherever your schedule takes you.  And most importantly…HAVE FUN!
