Process to Declare for the 2014 BC Soccer Provincial Premier Cup

The BC Soccer Provincial Premier Cup is the highest Youth Provincial Cup in BC which services boys and girls from the under 13 age division to under 18. The Champions at this level in the under 14, under 16, under 18 categories qualify to compete at the National Club Championships organized by the Canadian Soccer Association.

The first two years of this level competition was solely for the teams/clubs completing in the BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL).  This year BC Soccer is pleased to now have the Provincial Premier Cup open to all youth teams under the jurisdiction of the Association.  Currently, unless otherwise indicated, all BCSPL franchises (teams/clubs) are automatically entered (declared) for the Provincial Premier Cup.

Teams who current compete in leagues other than the BCSPL wishing to enter the BC Soccer Premier Cup must declare to their Youth District Soccer Association, who in turn will declare this commitment to BC Soccer.

All declarations need to be submitted via the appropriate Youth District Soccer Association.  All Youth Districts declaring teams must do so on this form by December 1st in the current coastal playing season and by June1st in the current interior playing season, provided the team, or teams, have played in properly constituted league matches and are not under suspension from district or authorized leagues.

Declaring for Provincial Cups is not a new process; Youth Districts do it annually for all teams/clubs within their jurisdiction through their registration submission.  

It is important to note that when teams declare for any level of Provincial Cup, they are not able to participant in any other level of Provincial Cup for that same season.  This included the qualification / play down for that respective Provincial Cup.  For example, if a team declares for the Provincial Premier Cup, they forfeit the ability to enter into either the A or B levels of Provincial Cup, including the regional play downs (i.e. Coastal Cup).

Below are the rules regarding BC Soccer Provincial Premier Cup Qualifications.
