U16 Div 2B Cross-Over schedule
December 17, 4:00pm - All standings and scores are now posted. If there are any missing games it may be due to non-reporting. Some forfeits are still being processed. Please forward any discrepancies to your Age Group Scoretaker - thanks!
December 11, 5:45pm - We thank you for your patience and understanding with regards to scheduling and standings. League Play is now over unless there are make-up games over the next 2 weekends as published in our League Calendar.
For U12 teamss - as per our Operating Guide, the League will be re-grouping these teams for good competition for the remainder of the 2014/15 season. We will post a notice once this scheduling is complete.
For U13–U18 teams, we will now be entering League Championships. The groupings will be formed after the make-up weekends. A reminder of LC game format is shown below (for further details, please refer to our Operating Guide 3.1). All specific dates can be found under the League Calendar link.
The BCCGSL wishes all of you a wonderful holiday season and we thank you all for engaging our girls in the World's Most Beautiful Game.
3.1 League Championship
After the completion of regular league play in December, all teams will commence play for the “League Championship”. Teams in each age group will be ranked according to their Divisional standings (i.e. Div. 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B) and those teams grouped geographically (Divisions 3+) will be melded according to their standings. Then, groups of 4-6 teams will be created. Teams within each group will play a round robin format with the top 2 teams of each grouping advancing to the finals weekend.
For round robin play, there will be no overtime. If the game is tied at the end of regulation play, teams go straight into a shoot-out [best of 5, if tied, sudden death] with points awarded both teams as specified.
Points in round robin play shall be awarded as follows:
• Win in regulation: 3 points
• Win via shoot out: 2 points
• Shoot out loss: 1 point
• Loss in regulation: 0 points
Points are tallied at the conclusion of round robin play. The two teams with the most points accumulated in each group compete in the Finals.
December 7, 8:30pm - The League Standings are experiencing problems again due to our Tags software. Oct 26 games for Div 2 & 3 are missing again. We are working to correct this quickly. Thank you for your patience.
November 29, 11:30am - All BCCGSL games for this weekend, Nov 29/30, are cancelled and will not be rescheduled due to the varying and extreme weather conditions and field closures throughout the Lower Mainland.
November 27, 4:00pm - The Standings as published are just missing October 26 games. We are awaiting a TAGs fix and this issue should be resolved shortly.
November 20, 2012, 10:30am - Fixing our Tags scheduling software is still a work in progress. The Oct 26 and Oct 19 games are switched around, with the Oct 26 games missing altogether in the standings calculations. Please be assured that we are still working on the problems. Thank you for your continued patience while we keep working at this.
November 11, 2012, 12:00pm - Important note for those that are playing any of the Whistler teams: All Whistler games are AWAY (even if listed HOME) due to the front-loading of games and unavailability of fields during the winter months. After November 9, all games will have Whistler on the road and they will be the AWAY team. It is possible that the schedule may not reflect this correctly. If you have any questions, please contact your District Rep.
November 4, 2012, 2:00pm - Unfortunately, the changes that were posted yesterday at 4:00 pm did not address what we had hoped for as outlined below. We realize that there are many repeat games. We apologize for this. At this point, there will be no more adjustments to the schedule - individual requests going forward cannot be entertained. Changes affect the entire website from field scheduling to scores and standing - a complete domino effect.
The schedule posted will stand as is. We sincerely apologize for such a confusing season with regards to scheduling. It has definitely been a learning curve and we hope that League Championships starting in January will be a lot more clear. We completely understand and acknowledge ALL the frustration to date. The BCCGSL volunteer Board are all trying our best and apologize for falling short.
November 4, 2014 7:30am - Please use our main scheduling page for scheduling. The schedule on the Contact and Standings pages do not display the correct schedule. We apologize for the confusion.
For Division 1 teams, the Nov 9 weekend is a District Cup play weekend. Division 2 and 3 teams play regular season games and they are listed on your schedule for Nov 9 (please ignore the "Oct 26" in the right column).
Please note that this coming weekend is the last weekend for all Whistler games to be played in Whistler. Subsequent games will be away games for Whistler, regardless of the home/away desigination on the schedule.
November 3, 2014, 4:00pm - We sincerely apologize but the schedule has totally been re-vamped. We ran into difficulties with the home/away balance due to the Post-Thanksgiving Re-Organization. As a result, there is now a new schedule effective starting November 8/9 games. The home/away balance should be evened out and each team should be playing every team in their grouping now. It has been a steep learning curve with our new scheduling system and we thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions, please contact your District Rep
October 27, 2014 4:00pm - The League thanks you all for your patience while we re-populated the Standings after our Thanksgiving Re-Organization. You will find all Standings posted now. With the Re-Organization of the League after the Thanksgiving Break, the scheduling software, TAGs, re-configures the entire schedule (beginning September 13/14) with these new groupings hence the pre-Thanksgiving Schedule as shown in the Standings is/may be inaccurate. HOWEVER, your points have been manually entered. Posted below the TAGs-generated standings are a listing of all your games Pre-Thanksgiving.

October 13, 2014, 10:30pm - Due to problems with the Tags scheduling software, only the Oct 18/19 schedule is available. The remaining schedule will be posted as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact your District Rep.
The main scheduling page is the correct schedule. Please ignore the Contact and Standings pages schedule, as they are the pre-Thanksgiving schedules.
**U16 Divisions 2B NW & 2B NE - Please note that you do NOT have a BYE in each grouping. We have manually scheduled 'cross-over games' for these BYES. Please see this page for the CROSS OVER schedule.

Please be reminded that all games versus Whistler are being played in Whistler until November 9.

It will be published shortly. We will post a note when it is ready. Thanks for your patience.
Important note for those that are playing any of the Whistler teams: All Whistler games until November 9 will be HOME (even if listed AWAY) due to the front-loading of games and unavailability of fields during the winter months. After November 9, all games will have Whistler on the road and they will be the AWAY team. It is possible that the schedule may not reflect this correctly. If you have any questions, please contact your District Rep.
The revised 2014/15 BCCGSL Operating Rules are posted. Please note the removal of the former grass/grass/gravel rule. It has been replaced with:
4.3 Field Condition rule (*revised 2014/15)
If the Home team’s field and alternate are closed, the game is cancelled and will not be re-scheduled. If teams wish to play the game and the Away team can provide a field, then Home team can travel to the Away team. The team providing the field must assume all costs associated.
If 75% or more scheduled League games are not played due to bad weather that weekend will be removed from the schedule and no points will be awarded for any games played.
Also please note the following regarding ID cards for BCCGSL games only:
4.2.2 BCSA Photo ID Cards
If a team fails to produce valid BCSA ID cards, the game is to proceed but will considered to have been played as "under protest" and will be reviewed by the Board (see rule 4.15 Forfeits).
All Division 2 & 3 games will end with League Championship Finals on Sunday, March 1, 2015.
We hope you have a great 2014/15 soccer season!
