Dates have been announced for assessments for U11 and U12 players (birth years 2005 and 2006) interested in playing with Vancouver Island Wave. Wave is part of the BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL, or as it is commonly known, HPL). BCSPL is an 8 team, Tier 1 league, with one franchise in Victoria, one in the Interior, and six based in the Lower Mainland. The other levels of soccer are VIPL (Tier 2), Gold (Tier 3), and Silver and Bronze (Tier 4). The Wave program is run directly by Lower Island Soccer and is not tied to any specific LISA club but instead draws players from the entire island. BCSPL is considered the entry point to higher levels of soccer (provincial, national and professional).
