Vancouver United FC support teams entering sanctioned* tournaments. A sanctioned tournament is one that has been approved by the BCSA and/or for which the District and/or BCSA provides authorization to attend.
Teams who are considering entering tournaments outside the province or outside of the US and Canada, please refer to the BC Soccer Association's Travel Policy.
To participate in any competition outside of the province, the BC Soccer Out of Province Travel Application Form must be completed in accordance with the BCSA Travel Policy.
VanU FC Tournament Reimbursement Policy
1. VanU FC will reimburse tournament registration (entry) fees, to a maximum value of $800, for any VanU team that has entered and played in a sanctioned tournament. (A sanctioned tournament is one that has been approved by the BCSA and/or for which the District and/or BCSA provides authorization to attend).
2. Tournament registration (entry) fees are the only expense eligible for reimbursement. No other expenses associated with participation in a competition will be considered.
4. Reimbursements will be processed once the tournament is completed and VanU can confirm that the team participated within the parameters of the event's rules and regulations and did not incur any outstanding disciplinary sanctions.
5. No less than 75% of the players participating in the competition must be registered to the team requesting the reimbursement.
6. Only the team officials assigned to the team and who have completed their criminal record check (CRC) may serve as coaches and/or managers of a team participating in a sanctioned tournament and requesting a reimbursement.
*Please note that we won't process reimbursements without a receipt.
*Participation in an unsanctioned tournament - one not approved by the provincial or national association - is at the risk of the participants as BCSA insurance coverage will not be provided. Teams may not enter an unsanctioned tournament under the Vancouver United banner or wear their Vancouver United uniforms.
