A Message from BC Soccer #respectall

November 2, 2018

The following message has been sent to all BC Soccer member clubs to remind our membership to be respectful. #respectall

With the start-up of the Coastal Season, there has been much soccer activity occurring which is positive; however, unfortunately BC Soccer has also been experiencing an increase in formal (and informal) complaints regarding poor behaviour from some players, coaches and spectators, specifically against referees. Therefore, BC Soccer would like to take this opportunity to remind all involved in our game of the importance of acting in an appropriate manner at all time. We request that all member and affiliated organizations pass along appropriate messaging to their own membership reminding them of the need to support the game by ensuring we all take responsibility to create supportive environments that are free from negative behaviour both on and off the field of play.

Thank you,
On behalf of BC Soccer’s board of directors
Ryan McQuillan
Competitions & Member Services Coordinator

My name is Remmert Hinlopen, my family and I have lived in Chilliwack for almost 28 years. During our time here in Chilliwack I have been an active coach with Chilliwack FC and, like you, have spent many a wet, windy, cold night on the fields! I am also a Physiotherapist in the community and enjoy focusing on soccer related injuries and the prevention of.

I am happy to offer my knowledge and my services to Chilliwack FC regarding the education and prevention of injuries commonly sustained by our young players.

To serve Chilliwack FC, I am partnering with Paul Nicholls of Club XO. Together we want to develop a program that effectively addresses the athletic development of our players. We will address such aspects as proper warm ups that focus on injury prevention as well as game preparation, speed, power and agility drills that contribute to building a top athlete. One of our roles will be to educate and support our club’s team coaches in implementing the right approach to all of these important aspects.

We will make ourselves available to players, coaches and parents to answer any concerns or questions you have in these areas. We will be establishing a link to the Chilliwack FC website called Your Physio Fix that will provide a direct link to myself or Paul so that we can provide you answers and guidance to the correct treatment and rehabilitation of our players should they sustain an injury. The goal being to get them back on the field as quickly as possible, but only when they are ready.

Paul and I would like to encourage an effective line of communication between players, coaches, parents and ourselves so that we can start to address injury issues immediately as the goal will always be to return the player to the field ready to compete again as the earliest possible time…..but only when they are ready!

Wishing everyone a fun and healthy soccer season!
