Vancouver Island Soccer for Young Athletes
- Registration usually opens AFTER club AGM
- Registration is all done online
- Register NOW! Registration is now open https://midislesoccer.powerupsports.com/
There are 3 good reasons why you should register as soon as possible:
- Some of our programs fill up fast!
- it makes it WAAAYY easier on the Club, and the various Leagues in which our teams play, if we know sooner rather than later that you’re going to play for us this year.
- You can go in to Summer knowing that Soccer Season is just around the corner!
Help your Club
Early registration makes it easier for our Club Registrar to form balanced teams at our younger ages, and it makes it easier to figure out the age divisions and game schedules for our older teams. The season generally kicks off in mid-September, and we want to ensure we’ve got everything ready to go for our players. Late registration hurts everyone. So don’t delay – register today!
Please note that, for insurance purposes, players cannot participate in any team practices or Club development sessions until their registration fee has been paid.
Yes, many programs are available.
Once you've applied for assistance, you can register the player to ensure they get on a team.
Yes, and the earlier you and your friend register, the better chance you’ll have of getting that request met.
Please note that the volunteer team at our Club works hard to create fair and balanced teams to promote fun for all kids – so not all requests are guaranteed. We will not meet requests for many children at once, or when chain requests are made.
No. Our governing body, BC Soccer, advises that children progress better when experiencing a range of Coaches and coaching styles. We will not meet Coach requests, and we encourage parents to note that, many times, the Coach that you like may not necessarily be the best Coach your child learns from.
Diverse Coaches, all working toward fun soccer and individual player development, is the best recommendation for all children by BC Soccer. Mid-Isle supports all our Coaches, and respects the time and energy they put into coaching.
No. Coaches have no input into team formation and cannot influence the team division.
The Mid-Isle Executive Board works closely with the Technical Director to create fair and equitable and fair teams following best practices recommended by BC Soccer. Coaches are asked not to request players or attempt to influence teams.
BC Soccer strongly discourages children from playing with older age groups unless they are an exceptional player and it appears both in the child’s benefit and safer for their peers and the team. Our Club Technical Director will assess any player as requested, and based on factors set out by BC Soccer, decide if they may play up or not.
Very rarely can an exception be made to allow a player to play on a younger team - only in mitigating circumstances, and after a written request has been made in writing and accepted by the Club Executive Board as well as BC Soccer.
All players that tried out or expressed interest will register for their respective “House” program level and pay that fee as part of the initial registration. If your player is interested in trying out, please make sure you have filled out the online communication form HERE.
There will be opportunities for evaluation and open field times over the coming weeks. Throughout the summer and potentially into the first couple weeks of play, the players that have been identified for a “REP” team will have the opportunity to accept a place on the team, and fees will be added to their registration account. The majority of the competitive players will not be rostered on, or able to play house games.
All fees must be paid by Oct. 15, or a payment plan in place.
Rep fees for U12/U13 age level is $375 (Initial fee of $225/remaining fee due by Oct. 15 $150)
Rep fees for U14+ age level is $400 (Initial fee of $225/remaining fee due by Oct. 15 $175)
Rep fees cover jersey, field time, league fees, reffing costs, Technical Director training and Administration.

All players need cleats, shin pads, and a water bottle. The Club has some second hand equipment if required. Comfortable sport clothing is needed, worn in layers - children should NOT attend in jeans and huge jackets.
We are entirely run by a great group of volunteers, but we can always use some help. Please refer to our Executive Board page for more information.
