    the u18 season may be the most difficult for many reasons, including the difficult-to-predict schedules.

    My experience over the past 7 years -- girls always played Sundays and boys on Saturdays. Exceptions - some valley clubs (Abbotsford/Chilliwack?) had girls on Saturdays instead of Sunday. I presume boys played either Saturday/Sunday with fewer girls teams needing field time in the outlying districts. Girls (older ages) typically did not play Friday evenings (normally).

    when I coached my son in u18 we were asked what our preference was from fri-sun. Like rich said though, there is usually more field space on sundays.

    The "Operating Guides" for 4DSL and 5DSL say boys generally play Saturdays but older teams (U17/18) may play their home games on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

    Here is the section from 2017-2018 BCCGSL Operating Guide:
    ---cut-here---
    3.3 Days of play

    League games have traditionally been scheduled for Sunday; however, teams in the U12-U18 Divisions may play their regular home games on Friday night, Saturday or Sunday provided intent to play home games on Friday or Saturday was given with affiliation. These teams shall have FRI or SAT incorporated in their team name.

    Allowable start times for games on weekends are:

    • Saturday 9:00 am to 7:00 pm

    • Sunday 9:00 am* to 7:00 pm (U12-U15 teams should not play a league game on a Saturday or Sunday that ends later than 8:00 pm unless agreed to by both teams)

    • Friday night games can start no earlier than 6:30 pm and end no later than 9:00 pm. No Friday games are permitted in which a team must travel via BC Ferries.

    Teams situated in areas with more inclement winter weather conditions will have their home games front-ended loaded in the schedule.

    *Some Districts can only provide turf to their U12 teams with earlier than 9:00 am start times. It is the responsibility of the home team to inform the visiting team in a timely manner and gain consent. If consent is not forthcoming, the home team must move the game start to the allowable times set out above.
