ABOUT THE LEAGUE

The BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL) was established by BC Soccer in conjunction with Canada Soccer, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, and the BC Soccer membership. The overall objective of the league is to support the development and identification of players within a standards based environment for Under 13 through Under 18 male and female programming. Each year, the BCSPL plays a spring/summer season (phase 1) starting in late February and culminating in the Provincial Premier Cup in late June.  The fall season (phase 2) is usually a League Cup round robin competition, culminating in the League Cup Finals. Together with its Development Partners, the BCSPL focuses on player, coach and referee development within a standards based game environment.

VanU, having achieved the Canadian Soccer Association’s National Youth Club License in 2019, now enters teams in BCSPL. All new BCSPL franchises enter teams at the youngest age group, known as the ‘U13 Intakes’ each year. This sees us add two more teams every year. In 2022, we will add two more, taking us to six (2008, 2009 and 2010 born teams on both the girls and boys side). Here is the program we have put together for this group. 

BCSPL EVALUATIONS:

There are no “tryouts” or specific evaluation dates for this level for members of our Club. All current Vancouver United FC members who are within the 2008 and 2009 age groups at our Club (those are currently the only 2 age groups where we have the BCSPL level) are evaluated throughout the season within their current environments (as part of the clubs season long evaluation process) and if requested to, are able to take part in training sessions and games as part of the fluid roster and permitting process. 


For players currently playing U12 at our club; VanU staff evaluate the player pool throughout the entire season and select players into the BCSPL at the appropriate signing windows provided by BC Soccer. Our development pathway however does not simply revolve around the BCSPL level, as we aspire to build out entire age groups; our BCSPL & Division One (next level) are in regular contact with one another and both programs adhere to similar philosophies revolving around long term player development and sustainability.
