Due to snowy conditions this weekend, all games this weekend are cancelled and will be deleted. The BCCGSL Board is meeting on Tuesday night to decide the remainder of the season. We will post our decision.February 18, 10:45am –
Due to the closure of all fields this weekend, these games will be moved to next weekend (Feb. 24/25). Previously arranged make up games are cancelled and will be dealt with on a case by case basis. Thank you for your understanding. January 15, 1:00pm –
A STRONG reminder that all games (now League Championship games) cannot end in a tie. No extra time. Please go straight to PKs. Failure to do so will result in a $500 District fine and the game may need to be replayed in its entirety on Feb. 25/26 weekend.January 6, 12:10am –
U13–U18 only: a reminder of whom to report League Championships game results to. Please note that for U13 teams, your game results might now be reported to a different email, as the groupings are slightly different from regular season divisions.
Report your score to the same email as before except for U13:
U13 Groups 1–6
U13 Groups 7–12
Please help our score takers by indicating your game's age and group/division, eg. U17 Group 4, as well as both teams. This will make it easier to ensure that they have the right teams in the right group/division without having to scan the entire age group that can have as many 100 teams. Thank you for your cooperation.
Here is a suggested format:
DATE, AGE, GROUP, HOME CLUB, HOME TEAM NAME, HOME SCORE, AWAY CLUB, AWAY TEAM NAME, AWAY SCORE
For example, this compact/short line of text in the subject line of your report email gives the score taker everything they need:
Jan 14 U14 Group 2 PCE Wildcats 0 AFC Wolves 1
For games that are decided by kicks in a shoot out (kicks from the penalty mark), please report the score at the end of regulation time (the tied score) and then who won the shoot out. Using the above game example, the report would be:
Jan 14 U14 Group 2 PCE Wildcats 1 AFC Wolves 1 PCE wins in PKJanuary 4, 10:00pm –
Happy New Year! As we move into 2018, U12s have had some minor revisions - their schedule can be found here (insert link). Also, for U13-U18, we are moving into League Championships. Best of luck to all teams! A reminder from our Operating Guide:
5.0 LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP
After the completion of League Play in December, all U13-U18 teams will commence play for the “League Championship”. Teams in each age group will be ranked according to their Divisional standings (i.e. Div. 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B) and those teams grouped geographically (Divisions 3+) will be melded according to their standings. Then, groups of 4-6 teams will be created. Teams within each group will play a round robin format with the top 2 teams of each grouping advancing to the Finals weekend.
**No Permits are allowed during League Championship.**
For round robin play, there will be NO extra time. If the game is tied at the end of regulation play, teams go straight to kicks from the penalty mark with points awarded both teams as specified.
Points in round robin play shall be awarded as follows:
• Win in regulation: 4 points
• Win via shoot out: 2 points
• Shoot out loss: 1 point
• Loss in regulation: 0 points
In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker protocol shall be:
• 1st tie-breaker – head to head results in round robin play
• 2nd tie-breaker – average points/game in round robin play
• 3rd tie-breaker – most wins in round robin play
• 4th tie-breaker – fewest goals against in round robin play
• 5th tie-breaker – at the discretion of the League Board
• Forfeits will be decided by the League Board.
Points are tallied at the conclusion of round robin play. The two teams with the most points accumulated in each group compete in the Finals.
If a League Championship Round Robin game is still un-played (see Field Condition Rule for LC Games 4.3), they must be played during the 2 scheduled make up weekends provided in the League Calendar. Teams must be prepared to play these weekends. Failure to do so will result in neither team receiving points. All un-played League Championship Round Robin games must be reported to your District Rep immediately. Decisions as to who will host will be determined by the League on a case by case basis.
First place teams in each Group will host the Finals.
For the League Championship Finals games only, should the game be tied after regulation time, extra time will be played.
Extra time is as follows:
• U13-U16 = 2 x 10 minute halves
• U17-U18 = 2 x 15 minute halves
If the game is stilled tied after extra time, kicks from the penalty mark will determine the winner.November 27, 9:00pm –

Happy Halloween! Today is the deadline for Districts to declare District B Cup Berths. For the 2018 Coastal B Cup, the berths will be as follows:
1) U13 - 8 District Berths + 4 Wild Cards
2) U14 - 8 District Berths + 4 Wild Cards
3) U15 - 8 District Berths + 4 Wild Cards
4) U16 - 8 District Berths + 4 Wild Cards
5) U17 - 7 District Berths + 5 Wild Cards
6) U18 - 8 District Berths + 4 Wild Cards
** Wild Cards are determined at the end of League ChampionshipsOctober 24, 5:00pm –
A strong reminder that all Forfeits are granted by the League (NOT by coaches or refs). From our Guide:
Under no circumstances may a referee declare a game a forfeit nor may a coach “claim” a forfeit. Only the League has the authority to declare a game forfeited. There are few valid justifications for awarding a forfeit.
In the case of forfeiture, the score shall stand a 1-0 against the forfeiting team unless otherwise indicated by the League.
Forfeits are not automatic and must be requested by a team and approved by the League. Directions to request for forfeit are found on our website under the Game Forfeits link. This must be done within 72 hours after scheduled game start time. The League will review the request and determine an official response to the request.
Note that the League may take up to 30 or more days to evaluate a forfeit request depending on the circumstances. The League will not entertain requests for forfeits of games un-played.
The forfeiting team will be fined $250 and then $500 for each additional Forfeit in a season by same team as per Appendix A.
**The team requesting the Forfeit is the team awarded the points (if successful).**October 19, 4:45pm –
U12s – We will be re-aligning this age group at Remembrance Day as opposed to Winter Break (per our Guide 2.44)October 17, 4:50pm –
BC Soccer has approved our Operating Rules. The final version can be found here
.October 17, 11:00am –
It has come to our attention that U16 1B, U16 2E, U14 2A and U14 2B-E were improperly re-aligned. There have been changes to the schedules. We apologize for this late interruption to our schedule.October 10, 7:45pm –
U13 has had many changes today. Please ensure all U13 teams check the new schedule.October 10, 5:00pm –
U14 has had many changes yesterday. Please ensure all U14 teams check the new schedule.October 9, 12:15pm –
The BCCGSL Board met last Thursday to re-align as per our Guide.The balance of the regular season's schedule is now available. All teams need to check this new schedule.
Many divisions have had changes, so please check carefully as to what division you are in. Due to division shifts, team pairings had to be re-done. Pairing is required for the most efficient field allocation for Districts with limited field access. Even though your division may not have changed, the team pairings may have. This has resulted in repeat games from the first four weeks in the schedule. We have done our best to avoid this, but they can still occur. We apologize for this and thank you for your understanding.
A reminder that those teams that have been moved will receive the average points for the group they have been moved into, unless it was a lateral move (i.e moving from 3W to 3E)
, as per our Guide.
When reporting scores, please remember your new division if your team has moved. The winning team reports the game result to the score taker
. In the event of a draw, both teams report the score.
Please direct any questions or concerns regarding the League to your District Rep
Thank you and have a great season.October 7, 4:45pm –

Please report your game result as soon as possible after the game. The winning team is to report the score to your age group's score taker
. In the event the game ends in a draw, both teams are to report the score. Do not assume the home team will report the score if you won the game. Please include the date, your age, division and both teams when reporting the score. This helps the score takers to find the proper game on their score sheet. The earlier you get the game result in, the sooner we can post results.
