Clubs Wishing to Join the PCSL
GUIDE FOR CLUBS WISHING TO JOIN THE PCSL
Clubs wishing to join the PCSL must submit a written application.
Clubs may also be required to make a short (10 minute) oral presentation to the league directors.
The written application and presentation should cover the basics but as a minimum we recommend it include:
- a brief description of your club/organisation and written
commitment of support from the organisation's executive (if that is not
the group making the presentation)
- your objective for joining the PCSL,
- which division(s) you wish to enter teams in,
- team administration, personnel and resources,
- an outline budget including sources of funding - you can use
the current PCSL schedule as a basis for travel and subsistence
estimates but we recommend you also provide for at least one two day
overnight visit to the interior (Kelowna/Penticton/Kamloops) plus one
visit to Victoria, possibly including an overnight stay depending upon
your division - actual travel requirements will only be known once the
participating clubs for your debut season are confirmed.
your home field options and availability - good quality natural grass or
artificial turf is acceptable - lockable changerooms and public washrooms are an absolute minimum requirement,
- your club's commitment to meeting the overall standards and
expectations of the PCSL. Refer as a minimum to the summary of PCSL
minimum standards available on the league website,
- confirmation that you have read and will abide by the PCSL Rules of Operation as published on the league website.
- your longer term plans and objectives involving the PCSL, whether
it is your intention to enter the premier division and when.
An elaborate presentation is not required, a relatively
informal conversational style is all that is expected. This also
provides an opportunity for the PCSL directors to meet the key members
of the applicant club's organisation and to answer any outstanding
questions the club may have and vice versa.
The date and venue for such a presentation will be communicated to aspiring PCSL member
clubs upon receipt by the League of a written application as described.
In addition to the above, new teams applying for PCSL membership
must complete the online League Registration Form available under
the Administration menu button on the League website.
On approval of a new team PCSL membership, payment
of PCSL membership fees is required by said team in full at the AGM.
Useful information for New
Applicants includes the following important PCSL documents that are all routinely available on the PCSL
website under the Administration menu button. These documents would include:
