Scheduling Update

Despite so far losing to snow about 7 weeks of play (depending on the field) this season, it is the VMSL's intent to maintain the integrity of our league and cup competitions and play the full cup schedule and play out the full season deep into April ... hopefully not requiring anything in May except perhaps relegation / promotion playoffs and the like.

LEAGUE PLAY - all teams are responsible to potentially play one or two games each week on short notice from here on in. Teams furthest behind will be scheduled over Easter.  Please advise the scheduler if you have practice slots that can be used for make up games.

CUP PLAY - The cup schedule has been compressed by two weeks but will still complete on All Cups Day April 1 with all semifinals now on Mar 17/18/19. Quarterfinals for all cups but Div 2 are Mar 3/4/5. Div 2 is still R16 Mar 3/4/5 with Div 2 quarters on Mar 10/11/12. There will be Imperial, Div 2 and Master B Cup play on Feb 24/25/26 but not Masters A or U21 Cup play.

PROV CUP - The VMSL is working with the BCSA and other adult leagues to consider the pros and cons of a delayed start to the Provincial Cup in order to allow weather affected leagues to determine who qualifies for their league placement based spots. Any decision here is out of the VMSL's control.

Please check the weekly schedule and your team pages regularly for the latest schedule information.

Please contact your opposition and/or the scheduler if you have ways to accelerate the completion of your league schedule.

Transfer Deadline Effectively January 14, 2017

The transfer deadline is January 15, 2017.

The office will be open—as usual—on Friday, January 13, 2017 and on Saturday, January 14, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

The office will NOT be open on Sunday, January 15, 2017.

Please remember that the ‘CAT’ system is not in effect during League Cup or Provincial Cup play. That means that a player can only play in Cup competitions with the team with which he is registered.

In order for a player to transfer from one team to another before the deadline, the proper transfer form must be completed and signed by all the designated parties. The form can be downloaded from the VMSL website or the BCSA website. The fee of $20, the signed transfer form, as well as the player ID card must be presented to the league office.

The deadline for letting us know if your team is NOT participating in your respective VMSL LEAGUE CUP is January 14, 2017.

Pacific United FC adult teams cleared to continue in VMSL play without sanction

As some members have noted, the BCSA has posted a suspension of Pacific United FC from all soccer related activity until November 1, 2018. An exemption from this club suspension are the adult teams currently registered and participating in the VMSL. These PUFC teams will not be placed under any sanction.

Timely Reporting of Yellow Card Accumulations

VMSL teams - please note that in past seasons, with a manual tracking process and paper game reports, there was a necessary processing delay in posting yellow card accumulations. This is no longer the case in 2016-17 and beyond. Suspensions will be posted and in effect in a more timely manner. We hope to also soon roll out functionality for team staff to view how many yellows each of their players has accumulated. This will allow team staff to be in a position to know which players are nearing suspension (without having to manually track this themselves.)

No Repeat of 2004 for Pegasus FC
