A collection of Frequently Asked Questions relevant to BCSPL Coaches, Managers, Players, and Parents.

  • Can you still play other sports if you are on a CMFSC BCSPL Team?

    CMFSC supports the CSA Long-Term Player Development Model, which states: "Soccer is the primary sport, but complimentary sports are encouraged which support movement and athleticism suitable to soccer..."

    So yes, you can play other sports, but players must make soccer their primary commitment. Players are expected to be in attendance for all training session and games. The actual interpretation of what level of commitment is required will be up to the team coaches and will vary with the age of the player.
