Port Coquitlam Euro-Rite FC is pleased to announce they have achieved Charter Club Status with BC Soccer. The BC Soccer Charter Program is a standards-based designation for clubs and organizations that provides their membership with quality assurances in a variety of areas, including coach certification, program standards, as well as mandatory criminal record checks (CRC’s) for all team officials and club staff/board members.
Obtaining Charter Club Status involves a vigorous review by BC Soccer and confirms that our programming at all levels meets development and player pathway goals.
BC Soccer’s Charter Program is a free, “opt-in”, standards-based initiative, designed to support and assist grass roots organizations, while creating a consistent experience for players and parents. Ultimately, we want the Charter to be achievable for our members and affiliates, while providing added service and recognition no matter the size or location of the organization. Any organization under BC Soccer’s membership is eligible to join Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program, however only those that have achieved BC Soccer’s Charter Status will receive Canada Soccer’s required Provincial Endorsement.
