Available West Van FC Scholarships:

West Vancouver Football Club Scholarship
Two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to West Van FC U18 players.

Clark De Boer Memorial Scholarship
One $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to West Van FC U18 players.

Clark was an important part of our club for years, and he was our equipment manager.  His positive influence on North Shore and West Vancouver Soccer goes back decades.  Clark’s North Shore Youth Soccer Association work included scheduling the Mini and House games for the District.  Clark also sat on the NSYSA Board and always stood up for what he thought was best for all youth.  For the WVFC, Clark used to be the events and tournaments organizer, and he took care of all the trophies for our awards night.  He did whatever was needed to ensure North Shore and WVFC soccer ran smoothly.

Daniel Southan-Dwyer Scholarship 
One $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a West Van FC player.

Robert Walker Memorial Scholarship
One $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a West Van FC player.

Bob Walker was a standout volunteer who donated the majority of his time coaching Div2 or Div3 players because he believed it was important that all players have the opportunity to learn the Beautiful Game. Long after his children finished playing in West Van Soccer's youth program, Bob continued to coach and provide players with a positive soccer experience.  He took teams to the Provincial Championships and brought back a number of other titles, but winning was never the bottom line for him.  Bob, a lifelong "Spurs" supporter, wanted his players to learn and play proper football.   Bob's impact on players goes back generations, and his legacy is the love and appreciation for soccer that he instilled in those who called him coach.

Good luck to all applicants!
