January 5th, 6th, 7th – League play recommences
The league calendar was created at the start of the season. Districts have booked fields to accommodate the January 5th & 6th weekend’s games. If there is a problem with games scheduled on this weekend the scheduler through Fred Quan, the BCCSL Scheduling Secretary and Garry Sangha, BCCSL Head Schedule can look at individual cases.

It's important to stay with the calendar and get as many games in as possible as no one knows what the weather will be in the new year.

Thanks. Doug Ross, Chair BCCSL


PROTESTS

IMPORTANT: Please see, under League Documents on the left-hand side of this home page, the document titled BCCSL Information Memo (Nov 2017) for important information.

November 24, 25 and 26 – League & Cup games – Third round of Cup play. League games will be cancelled only for the teams (and their opposition) involved in third round play. All other teams play League games as scheduled.

There are two levels of play for provincial competition. The Provincial Cup leads into National Championships and is open to all teams that wish to play. By March 1st of each year each District will have a winner advancing in each age group to the Round of 16 in the Coastal B Cup play-downs.

Each of the Districts will have a winner advancing in each age group to the Round of 16 in the Coastal B Cup play-downs.

B-Cup Wild cards & tiebreaking methodology: In the age groups where the League has a wild card spot in the B-Cup draw (1 each at U-13, U-15, U-17 and 2 each in U-14, U-16 and U-18), those spots will be given to the teams that had the highest standing in the League (descending from Gold 1 through: G1, G2, G3, S1, S2, etc.), no matter with which District they are registered or when they were eliminated from their District B Cup play-downs.


November 17, 2017
Next weekend (November 24–26) for BCCSL U13–U18 there will be a mix of league and league cup games. League games are cancelled for teams and their opposition that are scheduled to play in league cup.

The other teams will have the weekend off, or maybe a B Cup game. Check to see! It's imperative that teams contact each other well in advance to confirm games. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL NEXT WEEK to do that.


November 3, 2017
Since most of us woke up to a bit of white stuff this morning, it would be wise to remind people to contact the district information as set out on page 5 of the BCCSL Guide.

And if you know if your fields are closed, please make sure your teams contact their opposition.

See pages 12 & 13 of the BCCSL Guide regarding Bad Weather Directions and Called League Games (Abandoned Due to Field & Weather Conditions).

Closing fields could be a day-by-day decision FOR EXAMPLE Friday night games might me cancelled and Saturday and Sunday might be playable or a Friday night game might be playable whereas the rest of the weekend may not be playable. Or games may go on grass and not gravel, or vice-versa.

Communication is key!

Douglas Ross, BCCSL Chair

NOTICE REGARDING GAMES FOR NOVEMBER 11th
Remembrance Day this year is Saturday, November 11th.

Please inform your referees and teams, prior to the November 11th weekend, with regards to the minute’s silence to be observed at 11:00am.

Referee’s should remind any teams with games starting prior to 11 o’clock that s/he will blow the whistle and then the team officials should organize their players and fans for the moments silence.

The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honor of all who have fallen. Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve.
