The BC Coastal Soccer League (BCCSL) is a newly formed league that has amalgamated the former youth leagues that operated in the Lower Mainland. Those leagues were BCCSL Boys, MSL and BCCGSL. It comprises approximately 21,000 youth and all 8 districts. The amalgamation is to provide efficiencies in terms of a common set of rules, discipline processes as well as a single scheduling system. The goal is to professionalize the league and provide consistent services to its constituents.
