VMSL Mourns Loss of Bobby Rosenlund

The VMSL is saddened by the loss, after a long courageous battle with cancer, of one of the VMSL's Hall of Famers. Bobby Rosenlund was the midfield general during the 1980's and early 90's when the Vancouver Firefighters were such a dominant force in the VMSL. He has left us way too early at the age of 53 and will be sorely missed.

Provincial Cup Update

The Men's 2017 Provincial Cup draws have been delayed to April 13th to allow time for leagues affected by this winter's weather to complete games to determine qualifying participants based on league placement. All games affecting qualification must be completed by April 13th.

All Men's Provincial Cups will now start on the weekend of April 21, 22, 23 with the finals for the Men's A and U21 Cups on May 14 at Burnaby Lake West

The finals for the Men's B Cup and the Men's O35 Cup will now be held on the weekend of May 27/28 at a TBD location (because these competitions involve 24 teams and therefore need 5 rounds)

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.
