Delta Coastal Selects is pleased to announce the return of SurDel Soccer Club as a partner club member. DCS is now a collaboration of South Delta United Soccer Club, Coastal FC, North Delta Soccer Club and SurDel Soccer Club. DCS teams participate in the Metro Select League, which organizes and operates competitive boys and girls leagues for the second highest level of play for youth soccer in B.C.
We welcome SurDel Soccer Club to the partner clubs, who will continue to work together to grow and develop Delta Coastal Selects.
Delta Coastal Selects
We thank you with your patience regarding the uncertainty surrounding the Metro division ceasing operations and the ramifications of such a decision.
We have received communication from BC Soccer regarding the second tier of play (formerly known as Metro). As suspected, the second tier of play will continue although instead of the Metro League operating separately, it will now come under the control of the BCCSL which currently runs the Div 1-3 divisions (commonly known as Gold, Silver and Bronze).
What does that mean for Delta Coastal Selects?
We are looking at a name change from Metro to Division 1. Division 1 (Gold) would become Division 2, Division 2 (Silver) would become Division 3, etc. Everything else will remain very similar in structure. As with Metro, 3-4 Division 1 teams will be placed out of South District http://www.southfrasersoccer.ca to represent the District at the Division 1 level for the U13-U18 age groups. Priority for these Division 1 teams (previously called Metro) will go to clubs or collaborations of clubs who support the BCSPL (HPL) clubs in the district (Surrey Utd, Coastal). As a collaboration that supports the Coastal BCSPL program we feel strongly that we will continue to have Division 1 programs (Metro) for each age group and gender going forward under much the same structure that exists presently.
With this uncertainty largely alleviated, we are in the process of finalizing the evaluation schedule for the 2018/2019 season and will have this information to you shortly.
Once again, thank you for your patience and consideration.
