VanU FC Metro program.

BCCSL (BC Coastal Soccer League) has reduced the number of divisions it will run from four to three. The Metro division has essentially been merged with Division 1 for incoming U13 teams (2009 born). Existing Metro divisions at U14 to U18 (2004 - 2008 born players) will continue unchanged unless they do not have enough teams to be viable. In that event, Metro divisions will be collapsed into Div 1.

Anyone who is not a current Vancouver United FC member and would like to be considered for one of its U14 - U18 Metro teams, please complete the Van U New Player Interest Form.
