Welcome to BCRC Soccer!
Ballenger Creek Recreation Council Soccer has 2 programs; Academy and Travel. A player’s placement in the appropriate program is determined by the player’s year of birth (refer to table further below).
BCRC Soccer is run strictly by volunteers. If we don't have coaches and administrators, we can't offer playing opportunities. Registration fees may be discounted for players whose family members serve in significant volunteer positions. Please consider volunteering so we can keep our program running effectively.
