Aldergrove Youth Soccer is hosting the Coastal Cup this weekend, April 30-May 1.

The BC Coastal Cup has a rich history in BC youth soccer since 1953.

The Coastal Cup has two competitive levels of youth soccer and includes teams in six age groups of boys and girls from under 13 years to under 18 years.

The grand finals ceremony is in the host city of Aldergrove at the Athletic Park on April 30 and May 1.

The “A” Cup is open to teams from the Metro Select League and the Vancouver Island Premier League and from teams from lower leagues that want to challenge for the “A” Cup. Play downs started in April and teams play single knock out until there is a winner in May.

The “B” Cup entrees are decided through the 5 District and 4 District Leagues (Boys), the BCCGL (Girls) and the Vancouver Island Playdowns (Boys and Girls). The Cup started with play downs within each region and ends at the finals in Aldergrove.
