BMO COASTAL SOCCER CENTRE
The BMO Coastal Soccer Centre recently opened for play in the spring of 2019. This brand new, indoor facility is one of the only facilities of its kind in the lower mainland, owned and operated by a club (Coastal FC). This $5 million state of the art indoor soccer facility provides the best possible environment for footballing excellence within the province. With weather elements being identified as a major barrier to player development in Canada, the BMO Indoor Soccer Centre is the largest purpose built facility of its kind in the Lower Mainland and sets a new standard for player development facilities within the country. The inspirational environment, which is free from the harsh elements of the Canadian weather, allows Coastal to focus on a player development strategy that aims to produce the next generation of high performance, professional, and national team players. The combination of FIFA approved 3G turf, indoor training, professional coaching, and an innovative curriculum creates a developmental experience like no other.
