Awards & Scholarships

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

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.

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.
