About Us

The Beaver Valley Minor Soccer Association, in partnership with its members, is dedicated to providing the opportunity for any person in the Beaver Valley, Columbia Gardens and Salmo Valley, to play organized soccer and to assist participants in reaching their potential through leadership, development, caring and good governance.

BVMS is also heavily focused on development – coach, player, referee and organizational – and is working in tandem with the Kootenay South Youth Soccer Association (KSYSA) and BC Soccer toward the full implementation of Long-Term Player Development (LTPD), a Canadian Soccer Association soccer-specific adaptation of the Long-Term Athlete Development model (LTAD) developed by Canadian Sport Centres. LTAD is a scientific model for periodized athlete training and development that respects and utilizes the natural stages of physical, mental and emotional growth in athletes.
