Registration FAQ's

Proof of Age Requirements

BC Soccer photo ID (BCID) is compulsory for all U11 to U18 players and team officials in the BC Coastal Soccer League. 

A Proof of Age (POA) is required to complete a player’s registration with the District Association and the BC Soccer Association, and to obtain a BCID. The BCID number is valid for the player’s entire soccer career.

All incoming U11 players and players who are new to youth divisional soccer in BC (U11-U18) must submit a POA document for age and Canadian citizenship verification. Non-citizens may require an International Transfer Certificate

A POA document can be either a photo or a scan of a birth certificate or the photo page of a passport.   

The document can be either a hardcopy or an electronic submission. Hardcopies are to be sent to: Vancouver United FC; 315-2083 Alma Street; Vancouver, BC; V6R 4N6.  Electronic copies are to be emailed to:  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Once the document is reviewed by the Club Registrar, the POAs are transferred to the District Registrar for approval.

Once approved by the District Registrar, a BCID number is issued and the POA documents are shredded or electronically deleted.

Only club officials who have undergone a Criminal Record Check and understand the sensitivity of these documents are permitted to handle POAs.

Please call the office at 604-674-4109 if you have any questions regarding POAs.
