BCSA Policies

This page is dedicated to making available Big Country Soccer Association (BCSA) policies.  Our policies are vital to ensure the integrity of the youth development soccer program with BCSA and its registered members as well as our continued efforts and commitment to meeting the requirement and governance of Canada Soccer Association (CSA) and their Code of Ethics, as well as Alberta Soccer Association (ASA).

Although BCSA is only possible through the continued dedication of volunteers at all levels within BCSA and its registered members, having the following organized policies allows BCSA to establish consistency in its efforts with the soccer program.  These policies are available to all parties to access and become familiar with the systems that are in place to support not just youth development but also program growth.

Policies are reviewed frequently to ensure that remain current and in meeting with the current requirements and governance of CSA and ASA.  The policies listed below are considered to be the most up to date version.  If a visitor has a printed version of any documents listed below, it is their responsibility to compare their copy to that one posted on this page to ensure they have the most recent version.


BCSA is committed to providing a safe environment and program for youth developmental soccer.  In support of this commitment, the following policy is in place and is supported by the Board of BCSA and must be adhered to by BCSA registered members.  This policy is the tip of our Standards for Quality Soccer (SQS) efforts and will be reviewed annually by the BCSA Board to ensure it remains current to our SQS program and the governance we are required to adhere to both Provincially (ASA), and Nationally (CSA).
