Spring Co-ed Soccer, the best time to Play!

Thinking about joining the adult coed soccer league? Well now’s your chance, the league is ramping up for its spring session with a kick off date of April 7.  
The Bowen Island Football Club encourages all levels from beginner to advanced and each team is hand selected to reflect player experience.  The club is trying to encourage more people to join especially women, this is, after all a co-ed league.
Last year Allison Nosek owner of Crazy Beautiful Hair Studio, decided to join the league. The last time Nosek had actually played soccer was in elementary school, so while having a few insecurities to overcome and a family to consider she decided it was the right time to just go for it.
“I had been talking to other ladies about their experiences with the co-ed team and it just sounded really fun. I had always felt a small pull to soccer and thought this was a good opportunity to act on it,” says Nosek.
Passion for the game is at the heart of co-ed and although winning the infamous wooden trophy is the ultimate goal, players who join understand that in the end its just a game.  
“My team captain was amazing! He was so supportive. He was constantly trying to coach me into the best ways to position myself to get a goal. When I finally did score, I think he was happier than I was. It was my first time ever playing soccer and I scored two goals last season,” says Nosek.  
Support and camaraderie for newcomers is paramount to the success of this league. Soccer by nature is competitive however sportsmanship in the end will keep players coming back for more. “There was a very healthy level of competitiveness. I found that people wanted to win, but more than that, they really just wanted to play. One game that we showed up to, we didn’t have enough players, so the other team gave us one of theirs. It just goes to show that all they really want to do is play,” says Nosek.
Nosek’s team (Light Blue) took home the wooden trophy ending the Fall season in triumph, the perfect ending for this newcomer.  
Deadline to register is April 1st and you must be 16 years of age and over to play.  Teams play 1 to 2 times a week on the BICS turf field.  You can register as a single and couples will be placed on the same team unless otherwise specified.   Don’t miss out, for more information check out the website at www.bowenfc.com.
