Vancouver Island Soccer for Youth and Kids
Men's Division 1
The Vancouver Island Soccer League (VISL) is an amateur adult league with six competitive divisions. It features promotion and relegation, with the strongest teams in each division moving up to a higher division each year, replacing the lowest teams in those divisions.
Teams new to the League start in Division 3, which is where the Mid-Isle Mariners Men's team began their quest in the 2016-17 season. That year, the new team under coach Bill Merriman went undefeated in the League and was promoted to Division 2.
In 2017-18, the team excelled again, and was once again promoted, this time to Division 1, the highest level of amateur soccer on Vancouver Island. They play their home games at Forrest Field in Ladysmith on Saturday afternoons and evenings.
