BC Soccer would like to thank North Okanagan Youth Soccer Association for working with BC Soccer to bring the 2017 Les Sinnott Memorial B Cup to life. Without the hours of dedication from NOYSA and their volunteers, events like this wouldn’t happen.

“I want to congratulate all of the boys teams for making it to the BC Soccer Provincial Championships and wish them good luck in all of their matches,” said Don Dancey, BC Soccer Youth Competitions Chair. “I also want to extend a huge thank you to North Okanagan Youth Soccer Association and to the volunteers who have dedicated hours of work to make these competitions as memorable as possible.”

“Les Sinnott was a BC Soccer Board Member, Canada Soccer Committee Member and for many years dedicated his time to helping run the BC Soccer Boys Provincial B Cup,” continued Don Dancey.  “Upon his sudden passing in 2013 BC Soccer voted to rename this BC Soccer Championships the Les Sinnott Memorial Provincial Cup as a small thanks for all that he dedicated to this beautiful game in BC.”

The Les Sinnott Memorial B is run in conjunction with two other youth provincial championships: BC Soccer Provincial A Cup which is being hosted by the Central City Breakers in Surrey and the BC Soccer Girls’ Provincial B Cup which is being hosted by Coastal FC in Surrey.
