Richmond FC as part of its Strategic Plan initiative is currently applying for the CSA National Club Youth License, with the aim to increase the overall standards within the Club and to provide soccer programming at all levels of play by offering opportunities for players to play within the High-Performance Stream in the BC Soccer Premier League (“BCSPL”) at the U13-U18 age groups. Within Richmond FC’s current programming, the BCSPL would be a tier higher than the Club’s Select programming.

Richmond FC has reached the 2nd phase of the application process and will be informed by the CSA on January 23rd if the club has been successful in its application and granted the National Club Youth License.

If the Club is given the CSA National Club Youth License, BC Soccer will review the club’s application to begin participation in the BCSPL beginning September 2020 at the U13 (2008) age group with girls and boys.

What this means for the 2008 Girls and Boys and future players within Richmond is that there will be more opportunity for players to play within the High-Performance Stream, without the need to travel to other regions within the Lower Mainland that currently provide this level of competition.
