U13 - U18 Divisional Teams

West Van FC is a volunteer based soccer club; however, there are times when a team are unable to find volunteers to coach teams or when we hear from a team's parent group that they’d support hiring a paid coach and have someone in mind. This is especially the case for our Div. 1 and sometimes our Div. 2 teams because at those levels the play is competitive, and finding qualified volunteer coaches can be difficult. Our Technical Department strives to find volunteers for each team, but when one cannot be found, a professional coach may be hired by the team for the season.  When this happens, the families are responsible for paying the coach's salary as part of an additional fee. No player will ever be removed from a team because they cannot afford to pay the additional coaching fee, but enough family members must contribute to the coach's payment or the coach will not likely take the team.
