Recently the Metro Women’s Soccer League has dealt with

responsibility of all MWSL
members to be familiar with the governing documents that both the MWSL and
have in place including BC Soccer’s
Coach’s Code of Conduct. All ejections
are investigated and ruled on by the MWSL
and/or BC Soccer. Sanctions include fines, suspensions and
Games officials attend your games so that
two teams can enjoy playing the game we love. Without them, there would be no
game. Verbal abuse/assaults or negative comments towards officials, or anyone
for that matter, have no place in the game.
Coaches, be reminded that, as a coach, you
are expected to display higher standard of behaviour and be a role model for
players, parents and spectators.
We may not be able to get this type of
behaviour and conduct out of the game entirely, but we want it out of

MWSL Passion to Play Award
Passion to Play Award (To recognize Courage, Strength, Perseverance & Passion to Play)
If you are aware of any person involved with the MWSL, that has had a struggle or life altering experience and has come back to play Soccer at any level, we would like to hear from you and to recognize this person. It could be a player, team staff member or a league official. Candidates will have demonstrated courage, strength, perseverance and a passion to return to the game.
Recipients will be recognized throughout the season in a pre-game ceremony.
Please forward all submission to email@example.com at anytime during or between the seasons.
We will view all submissions and present a plaque in person at one of their home games. As a Club, we see that people have difficulties at times and to come back and play with a team, is both therapeutic and a great stress reliever. We would not divulge any information that the individual deems embarrassing or personal. Someone from our executive would contact the team coach/manager and arrive before the game and in your warmup, just announce the award. The award is to show that we appreciate that the person has chosen to come back to the game, for whatever reason and their team wants to show that they are there to support them.

ones and making a real difference.
We invite all
teams/members to get the PINK OUT for all affected and to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
The MWSL will
support and encourage any team who would like to show their support throughout October by wearing Pink jerseys, Pink accessories during your games. The league will
ease up on rules regarding under garment and colouring of accessories

must be numbered and colours are distinguishable between teams.
