With the start-up of the Coastal Season, there has been much soccer activity occurring which is positive; however, unfortunately BC Soccer has also been experiencing an increase in formal (and informal) complaints regarding poor behaviour from some players, coaches and spectators, specifically against referees. Therefore, BC Soccer would like to take this opportunity to remind all involved in our game of the importance of acting in an appropriate manner at all time. We request that all member and affiliated organizations pass along appropriate messaging to their own membership reminding them of the need to support the game by ensuring we all take responsibility to create supportive environments that are free from negative behaviour both on and off the field of play.
On behalf of BC Soccer’s board of directors
