BC Soccer proudly recognizes clubs that have achieved Club Licensing

BC Soccer joins Canada Soccer in announcing 18 BC-based Clubs achieving a 'Quality Soccer Provider' designation in line with Canada Soccer’s Club Licensing Program designation.

These organizations have worked diligently to achieve the designation and provide participants a safe and welcoming environment. We applaud the efforts of the following organizations:

Quality Soccer Provider
​Albion FC Kamloops YSA ​Prince Rupert YSA
Bulkley Valley Soccer Society Kelowna YSA ​Quesnel YSA
​Creston Valley YSA Killarney YSC Saanich Fusion FC
Comox Valley United North Okanagan YSA ​Sooke SC

Starting in 2023, the Quality Soccer Provider designation is a requirement of membership to ensure that all member organization clubs meet the standards required to fulfill the requirements of Canada Soccer’s Safe Sport Roster which was unanimously adopted at the 2019 Canada Soccer Annual Meeting of the Members.

“We are very pleased to announce another group of Clubs who have met the Standards for Quality Soccer as well as those who have achieved a higher recognition category. These organizations are making a commitment to providing safe, fun, accessible inclusive, and developmentally appropriate programming, which are the principles that underpin the Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licensing Program,” said Canada Soccer’s Director of Development, Dave Nutt. “Canada Soccer would like to thank our Member Associations for their support in implementing the Club Licensing Program as well as the Clubs for their hard work in raising the standards of soccer in Canada.”
