U11 to U18

U11 to U18

The Club provides team play and skills development for our youth players.  Staff coaches support all of our programs.   

U11 - U12 Soccer

It is recognized that to develop skills, repetitions are needed. The more we touch the ball the better our touch will be! Soccer coaches of all ages use small-sided game environments to develop the technical aspects of their teams.

In keeping with this philosophy, our U11 - U12 program stays with the Small Sided Game format although at this age it is 8-a-side (including a goalkeeper).  Game scores are reported for monitoring purposes only and will not be published.

U11 and U12 will consist of both House and Select teams. Players will be chosen for a Select Team based on a combination of in-season and year-end evaluations and will play at the Gold and Silver levels. Players not chosen or not wanting to play on a Select team will be assigned to a House team.  In U12 the House teams will play at the Bronze level in the BC Coastal Soccer League (BCCSL).

There can be many levels within each BCCSL division (including Gold 1, Gold 2, Silver 1, Silver 2, Bronze 1 and Bronze 2).

U11 Soccer

The U11 boys gold select teams play in the BCCSL. The BCCSL is the league that all boys from U11 gold to U18 play in. It consists of teams from Alouette, Burnaby, Fraser Valley, North Shore, Richmond, South Fraser, Tri-Cities, and Vancouver Youth Soccer Districts.  U13-U18 Gold teams will play against teams from all 8 soccer districts.  All other teams' games will be scheduled geographically.

For U11 Gold there is also a short spring season from late April to June where newly formed U11 Gold teams play a series of exhibition games once per week. There is a small spring fee associated with this spring portion in addition to regular NVFC registration.

U11 boys Silver and House teams do not play in the BCCSL.  They play in a North Shore District only league run by the North Shore Youth Soccer Association.  All U11 and U12 teams play 8-a-side soccer.  Note: some games against Vancouver teams may be scheduled for U11 Silver teams.

U12 Boys play in the BCCSL

The U12 BCCSL is an 8 aside league divided into Gold, Silver and Bronze divisions often with sub-divisions within each.

For U12 Gold there is also a short spring season from late April to June where newly formed U12 Gold teams play a series of exhibition games once per week. There is a small spring fee associated with this spring portion in addition to regular NVFC registration.

U13 to U18 boys and up play in BCCSL

The BCCSL is an 11-a-side league and is divided into Gold, Silver and Bronze divisions often with sub-divisions within each.  U13-U18 Gold teams will play against teams from all 8 soccer districts within the BCCSL.  All other teams' games will be scheduled geographically.

U13 to U18 boys BCSPL and Metro Leagues

Heading into U13 there are two levels of play that are introduced that sit above the gold level. The BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL) is the top level of play. The Club does not run teams in this league. However, the Club will recommend players to Mountain FC (a BCSPL organization that primarily represents players from Burnaby, North Vancouver, West Vancouver and Sunshine Coast).

Just under BCSPL and above the gold level, the Club enters teams into the Metro Soccer League. The Club may do so independently or in conjunction with West Vancouver.
