Thank You Volunteers!

National Volunteer Week April 23-29

Vancouver BC, April 25, 2017 - April 23 to April 29, 2017 is National Volunteer Week, a time to celebrate and thank the volunteers across all sectors. BC Soccer would like to take this opportunity to thank the thousands of volunteers who dedicate their own time to help better this beautiful game in British Columbia.  Volunteers help build and strengthen the soccer community and thanks to the efforts of thousands of volunteers, more than 120,000 registered players in all regions of British Columbia enjoy soccer.

“ We really want to show our gratitude for the hours of time that volunteers in this province dedicate to soccer,” said Kjeld Brodsgaard, BC Soccer President. “Without volunteers the BC Soccer community wouldn’t be as vibrant as it is today, and more importantly, the 120,000 players from across the province wouldn’t be able to enjoy this amazing game.”

“Whether you’re a volunteer board member, administrator, coach, team manager, or weekend volunteer, we thank you,” said Jason Elligott, BC Soccer Executive Director. “We also want to encourage all players, parents, coaches, and anyone involved with soccer to thank volunteers not only this week, but throughout the entire year for their dedication and time.”
