We have just completed the final season of the Metro Select League, which started as a boys league in 1984.
The League has consistently striven to provide the competition for our region’s strong players to hone their skills and become more complete players. Over the last 35 years we have seen many excellent teams and numerous players who have later gone on to play professionally around the world and to play for Canada’s youth and senior national teams.
We have been fortunate to have had so many very passionate people involved with the league, working tirelessly to operate it with the integrity that our teams and players deserve. In addition to extending our deepest thanks to these committed people on the MSL Committee over 35 years, we also extend similar thanks to the countless coaches, managers, officials and the club and district schedulers who have helped the league to run as smoothly and as professionally as it has.
Thank you all. It has been a “Job Well Done”.
Welcome to Metro Select League (MSL) for boys and girls age 12 to 17. It is a highly competitive youth soccer league for the best District wide teams in the BC Lower Mainland.
The regular schedule runs from the first weekend after Labour Day through to approximately mid-March. The League schedules games on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
The Metro Select League was the amalgamation of the Girls Metro League and the Boys Select League in 2011. The goal was to form a stronger and most competitive soccer league for boys and girls in the Lower Mainland.
The Boys Select League was formed in 1984 to run the top teams from each Lower Mainland Districts including Vancouver Island. The league has been very successful for many years and has introduced many changes to the running of soccer, most notably the introduction of player I.D cards, later implemented by BCSA for all players. Also player “Permits” which allow teams to pull players from young age group teams or from a lower division team on a one game per permit as was needed. This has now been adopted by most Leagues.
