The West Coast League encompasses the entire Pacific Northwest, including the stunning beauty of British Columbia. As such, your son will need a valid passport for travel purposes (you may need one as well, if you wish to travel to Kelowna to watch the club play).
For players, If you do not already have the proper documentation, you would be wise to begin securing that now. It takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks to get that paperwork done properly, and as winter progresses to spring, those times usually get longer (as people look to travel). Here are some websites that will help you secure your travel documents/passports:


Please call our office if you have any questions – if your son does not have his passport, he will not be able to join us on our road trips to Canada, and since we have a talented roster, we want to make sure every member of the team is there and able to contribute.
