League Objectives

The BCSL is primarily recreational rather than competitive, so our principal objectives for children, coaches and parents are (in order) to:


Be active.

Learn rules of fair play and good sportsmanship.

Develop a love of soccer.

Pick up some basic soccer skills along the way.

To help achieve these goals:

We don’t keep track of scores or standings.

We learn soccer in a happy and safe environment, free from negative criticism and harassment.

Each of us – players, parents and coaches – feels like an essential member of their team.

We challenge ourselves to do our best.

We play soccer fairly and with good sportsmanship
