Proposal for New VIPL Team Formation
The Vancouver Island Premium League (VIPL) is an all-island league—one level below the BC Soccer Premier League—that sits second in tier for league play among the 10 Lower Island Soccer Association clubs. VIPL teams from the lower island are mostly inter-club teams, formed through cooperation agreements between clubs. Arising from dissatisfaction with the current team formation model, the presidents of lower island clubs have created a VIPL committee to create a more effective model.
The proposed new team formation model is called the ‘three zone model’ because it creates three somewhat geographically-based teams for each age/gender cohort, with each team indirectly supported by clubs from which players originate.
Please note: this proposal will NOT apply to existing VIPL teams, just new incoming U14 teams.
If you are interested in learning more about this new proposal—or have a child playing in the U12-U13 divisions with interest in VIPL—please review the attached proposal and attend a discussion on Wednesday, January 4th, at 7:30pm in the lounge at Oak Bay Recreation Centre.
