2017-18 Online Player Registration Open

This is the first year with no paper registrations and only online registration. Look for a registration key code from your manager. We are supporting credit card payment as well as email transfers.

No registration will be complete without an acceptable headshot uploaded into the system. A card cannot be produced until a headshot has been approved by the league. Headshots uploaded last season carry forward automatically when you re-register for 2017-18 but not all of these have been accepted.

Managers will need to visit the office once to pick up cards after players are registered online
  • bring the expired VMSL card to office to get the player's 2017-18 card
  • without an expired VMSL card, you need BOTH a photocopy of picture ID and a printout of the registration confirmation page / confirmation email signed by the player    No exceptions

Referee Fee Increase for 2017-18

As discussed at the AGM, the league is increasing referee fees $10 per head referee and $5 per linesman across the board for 2017-18 to account for an increase in costs since the last increase in 2012.

For teams playing 11 home games without linesmen, this has a $110 impact this season or about $5 per player.

With linesmen, this has a $220 impact per team over the season or about $10 per player.

Thank you for your understanding.

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.


Bobby playing in Edmonton with the Men's National Team in 1984
