The Burlington Soccer Club’s League 1 Program launched in 2022. This program will begin with Premier teams for both the men & women, and a Reserve team for the men.  The club’s ultimate goal is to offer both a Reserve and Premier team for both genders in the future (2023). 

League 1 is the province’s first Pro-Am, standards based, senior soccer league for both men & women. League 1 launched in 2014 and BSC is fortunate to be one of a few clubs that offers this program within the Halton Region. The program completes our Player Pathway for all Bayhawks and serves as a bridge program between youth high performance (OPDL) and Professional soccer.
