BOWEN ISLAND FC  YOUTH TEAMS

BIFC teams play under the North Shore Youth Soccer Association and compete in either the North Shore Intra District (U9 to U12) or BC Coastal Soccer League (U13 and U14). 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 either combine genders and register the team under the "boys" division OR we may move players up or down (we cannot play with overage players at U13 and older). For more information on youth teams please contact the Club TD.

Diversity, Inclusion and Equality: BIFC is proud to support LGBTQ2+ athletes. Our mission is to ensure that ALL children on Bowen Island who wish to 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.

What To Bring: Cleats, shin guards and a water bottle. Cleats can be purchased at Macey's (North Van)Sport ChekCanadian Tire, or the Knick Knack Nook sometimes has used cleats. We encourage players to wear shin pads under their soccer socks or track pants.

Rain or Shine: Soccer in BC means getting used to playing in wet (and sometimes cold) conditions. Please dress your child in appropriate clothing for outdoor activity and it is very important to keep your child as warm and dry as possible. Please use BIFC clothing (or red soccer or sports clothing) whenever possible.
