Remembrance Day Tourney

Remembrance Day Tournament

Canada Soccer’s Active Start
BGSC 7-aside Remembrance Day Tournament

UPDATED October 15, 2021

Cancellation Notice for November 11, 2021 Event

After discussions with various stakeholders the Burnaby Girls SC have made the decision not to go ahead with our Remembrance Day Tourney again this year.  

Due to the nature of our event and its emphasis on the social aspect of girls’ soccer we felt that it would be very difficult to host the tournament in a safe manner.  
Over 60% of our players in the past have been under 12 years of age and therefore can’t be vaccinated.  There is also no mandate in place for older players or team officials to be vaccinated.

Those of you who have supported our event in previous years know that our tournament is unique and revolves around what we like to call “controlled soccer chaos” as 80 teams and over 1000 players move throughout the site all day.

The social aspect is just as if not more important than the actual soccer games as evidenced in the fantastic atmosphere we witness along the “tent rows” between fields 2 and 3 and around field 4.

As leaders in our community, we simply don’t think we can maintain the overall atmosphere and unique format of our event while ensuring that we keep the community safe.  

Best of luck to everyone with your season, we will miss you again this year and look forward to seeing everyone on Friday November 11, 2022.

Additional Tournament Information:

Please note
  • The city will allow propane heaters on site but not on the turf surface

  • As a result of the format of the event there are no warm-ups prior to your game (unless it is for your 8am game) and no extra space available at BLWSC to warm up off the field either.  So no need to bring your bag of balls, cones etc.. one or two balls will work fine for each team.  Please bring pinnies as in the event of a colour conflict, as stated in the tourney rules the Home team (listed first) will wear the pinnies.

A reminder that all tournament games in 2019 will take place on Monday November 11.
