Dear BC Soccer, Full Members and Affiliate Clubs, 

Annually, BC Soccer in conjunction with member nominations provides 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 following four special awards.
