Awards & Scholarships

BC Soccer is pleased to recognize individuals from within the soccer community with annual awards and scholarships!

BC Soccer is NOW accepting nominations for the special awards recognition for 2021!
 
BC Soccer in conjunction with member nominations, provide awards to approximately 24+ individuals. The majority of these awards are typically tied to the current season of play, and nominations are submitted electronically by membership and/or recommendations brought forward by the Board.
 
Due to the significant restrictions on soccer activity over the last 12+ months from the BC Government and Provincial Health Authority, for 2021, BC Soccer is adjusting the awards categories to provide the four special awards. 
 
These special awards will not only recognize extraordinary individuals from within BC Soccer’s membership (players, coaches, teams, administrators, clubs/districts leagues etc.) who have made significant contributions and/or impact on their soccer community, but also highlights positive soccer experiences within BC Soccer’s membership during these challenging times.
