“We are really excited to announce that Coastal FC has achieved BC Soccer’s Club Charter Standard 1 and I want to thank all of their staff and volunteers who have worked incredibly hard to meet the criteria,” said Kjeld Brodsgaard BC Soccer President. “BC Soccer recognizes that both large and small clubs face various challenges in achieving the Standards in the BC Soccer Club Charter Program, so this is a true testament to all the work they have put in. We look forward to continuing to work with Coastal FC as they work toward creating the best possible learning environment for players, coaches, and parents, both on and off the field.”
