Vancouver United FC is a new club with a long history. We are the result of the combination of three long standing west side Vancouver soccer clubs: Dunbar Soccer Association, Kerrisdale Soccer Society, and Point Grey Soccer Association. In the middle of March 2011, the membership of the three clubs voted to move forward with the formation of the new soccer club.
The new club is one of the largest soccer clubs in Western Canada with 3,700 players ranging in ages from five to eighteen.
The founding clubs have been in existence since the late 1950's and early 1960's. The new club inherits a long tradition of community involvement and great teams and players who have donned the respective jerseys of these founding organizations.
The club currently operates teams at the House (U6-U10) and Divisional (U11 -U18) levels at a Gold, Silver and Bronze levels or Divisions One through to Eight in their respective leagues in the Lower Mainland. The clubs operates separate neighbourhood houses at the U6-U10 level representing the three founding clubs (Dunbar, Kerrisdale and Point Grey). The creation of the separate neighbourhood houses allow for families to have their respective games at the younger age groups closer to home. At the Divisional level, the new club will have close to 125 teams participating in the BC Coastal Girls Soccer league, 4 District Soccer League, and the local Vancouver Youth Soccer leagues for U11 and U12 teams.
The club already has a great history of volunteers that built the respective founding clubs and a strong group of volunteer coaches, managers, coordinators, and administrators that operate the club today. The new club will have over one thousand volunteers that help to ensure that our young players have a great experience playing the beautiful game.
