History, Members, and Place on the Landscape
Vancouver Athletic FC is the amalgamation of long standing clubs Douglas Park Soccer Club and Grandview Legion Football Club (1955), and relative newcomer Vancouver Girls Soccer Club (established in 2007 out of a desire to provide more opportunities for girls in the city of Vancouver to play soccer at levels suitable for their abilities). The new club has over 1600 players ranging in age from five to eighteen, primarily serving the soccer needs of members in Central and East Vancouver.
The club also includes affiliated but financially separate adult teams playing in the VMSL and MWSL.
Grandview Legion Football Club has a 55 year history in East Vancouver, offering an outstanding soccer experience for boys and girls aged 4 to 17 years old. We offer:
House League Play for players aged 4 to 9 (born between and 2003 and 2008)
‘U Team’ Play for players aged 10 to 17 (born between 1995 and 2002)
Player, Coach and Referee development
