In response to the impacts of COVID-19 on British Columbia's amateur sport sector, viaSport is pleased to announce that we will be administering two new sources of relief funding for sport organizations. 

Funding for accredited provincial sport organizations

As part of the $72-million COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund for Cultural, Heritage and Sport Organizations, Heritage Canada is delivering $3.4 million to address the impacts of the pandemic on amateur sport in B.C.

BC Soccer - Board Candidate Applications

BC Soccer is now accepting candidate applications for its Board of Directors for terms commencing November 2020. Elections for these positions will be held at the Annual General Meeting on Saturday November 7th.

In 2020, the current terms of office of the President, VP Finance, VP Youth and four at-large directors will be complete. Accordingly, elections will be held for these positions. Over 2019-2021, BC Soccer has been transitioning from two-year to three-year terms for directors, as laid out in the Bylaws. The 2020 board member elections will include the President (three-year term), VP Finance (three-year term), VP Youth (one-year term), three director positions for three-year terms and one director position for a one-year term. There may also be more positions to be filled if any current director in the middle of their term steps down or chooses to run for a different position on the Board.

UPDATE: Zoom details emailed to LIWSA members July 4 
Please check your emails.

Hello everyone,

Our AGM has been delayed somewhat due to uncertainty about large meetings during the pandemic. We have been advised that an AGM still needs to go forward, but held as an online meeting. We will be having our AGM via Zoom on July 5, at 5:00 pm. Please download the Zoom app if you do not have it already, in order to quickly access the meeting. 
A few pieces of information going into this meeting:

  • We ask that you log on at 4:45 so that Marta can set you up with voting capabilities if needed (only one member from each team is allowed to vote).
  • Please provide your first name and team affiliation so it is visible on your Zoom window.
  • Please limit your attendance to two representatives per team if possible.
  • Marta will be hosting the Zoom meeting, which means she will have control over the functions. Attendees not on the executive will remain muted throughout. Questions will be taken after each director's report through the chat function, where you can type your question. Marta will monitor the questions and unmute when it is the question-asker's turn.
  • We will be using a polling function to vote during the elections portion of the meeting. Marta will explain how this will work during the meeting.
  • This is our first Zoom AGM so please be patient - your understanding will help us all get through it as efficiently and productively as possible!
Please find attached our draft agenda for the meeting. Thank you and looking forward to "seeing" you all on July 5!
