Information about new member registrations

If this is your first time registering, please watch the 'How to Register in Power Up' video to assist you with this process. New members must create a guardian account and then add family members (children) they’d like to register. Only programs that match the birth year of the player will be available in the registration centre.

We recommend all members review the following policies in relation to registration:

Registration for Fall/Winter season opens on or around February 15th.

  • If you are applying for KidSport, or Jumpstart, please contact Member Services before completing registration for further instruction.

Registrations made after June 1st:

  • Placement on a team is not guaranteed. Players may be waitlisted until a spot becomes available - there is no time frame of when OR if this may occur.

Club Registration and Payment Collection Policies

All players are not eligible to play or train until they are fully registered, and fees are paid.

Exceptions to this policy are only made for players who are seeking financial assistance, and only after prior contact with the appropriate club official.

For players on a multiple payment model, should they fail to complete payments, they will be contacted by a club official on three (3) instances over a 30-day period following the due date of the fees. Failure to communicate with the club official and/or making mutually agreeable alternate arrangements will result in their suspension from all club programs.

Unpaid registration fees after the expiry of the 30-day period may also result in the member being removed from the roster and active status within the District and BC Soccer.

Please contact Member Services if you have any further questions.

No, our registration process is only supported on-line.

If at the time you register a program is full, your child will be placed on a waitlist. The waitlist will remain in the order of registrations received. Coordinators will try to find teams for waitlisted players either when an existing player cancels their registration or if new teams open up. If we cannot place a waitlisted player on a team by the start of the season, we will confirm with you and reimburse any fees paid. 

Registrants without online access or credit cards are asked to register online with the assistance of a friend, relative, employer or via public facilities (all local libraries provide free online access) online with a pre-paid credit card….see details of various available cards at: http://dan.matan.ca/Canadian-Prepaid-Mastercard-Visa-Card-Reviews-Information

Only those players who register by May 15th will be placed on a team in the pre-determined order of registration (subject to Coach availability). After May 15th, a late fee of $50.00 applies to all registrations.

If you register on a waitlist, you will be required to pay the $50.00 late fee only. If you are offered a spot in the program, full payment of the registration fees will be due within one week of being removed from the waitlist - if fees are not paid, your child may be placed back on the waitlist and the next player in line will be served. If we are unable to remove your child from the waitlist, the late fee of $50 will be refunded.

Players and parents should be aware that accepting, including verbal, and then subsequently withdrawing from one of the following teams will result in forfeiture of their registration fees:

  • All U13 - U18 teams
  • U11 - U12 Division 1 & 2 teams
  • U8 - U10 Development Teams

Players participating in U12 and below age groups, excluding Development and Divisional players (as stated above), are eligible for refunds (subject to the same contingencies listed above), provided such requests are received in writing by Member Services prior to October 15th.

A written request to the Registrar is required for the return of registration fees. It is club policy that refunds will ONLY be given under extenuating circumstances. Return of the registration fee will be contingent on the following:

  • a $30.00 cancellation fee
  • prorated amount, based on portion of season elapsed
  • deduction of unrecoverable costs (i.e. affiliation fees, equipment, team pictures, etc.)
  • return of any outstanding raffle tickets and/or funds
