BOWEN ISLAND FC YOUTH TEAMS
BIFC teams play under the North Shore Youth Soccer Association and compete in either the North Shore Intra District or BC Coastal Soccer League. We generally offer teams between the U9 and U13 age levels. Once we know who is registered we then decide what teams to enter in league play. The “boys" division plays games on Saturdays while the “girls" division plays on Sundays. If BIFC does not have sufficient numbers to submit a full roster (10 - 12 players) to play in the league, then we will combine genders and register the team under the "boys" division.
BIFC is proud to support LGBTQ2+ athletes. Our mission is to ensure that ALL children on Bowen Island who wish it, are given the opportunity to play soccer where they feel they belong and are most comfortable. Please register your child to play on the team they best identify with. Our Technical Director and/or Registrar can help parents complete registration if they need support. Our coaches, board of directors, and staff will keep all information confidential if requested.
For more information on youth teams please contact the Club TD.
