The Pacific Coast Soccer League is an amateur soccer league, currently featuring teams from British Columbia. In the past, clubs from Washington and Oregon have competed.

The league has a short, 2.5-month summer season. The league winners are not eligible for any higher cup competitions; however, most players participate in a winter league, such as the VMSL, VISL or FVSL, where teams do participate in BC Provincial Cup qualification. Several clubs are directly affiliated and managed by local university soccer programs looking to keep their players in form and build team chemistry over the off-season.[citation needed]

The league fielded both men's and women's premier and reserve leagues with varying numbers of teams until 2014 when the league was reduced to one men's division. The current PCSL was reconstituted thereafter as a separate entity in 1995. Since 1989, the highest ranking PCSL Canadian team plays for the John F. Kennedy Cup against the Oregon Adult Soccer Association champion and the Washington State Adult Soccer Association champion.

As of 2017, the PCSL no longer operates a men's reserve division, or any women's divisions. After a four-year hiatus, John F. Kennedy Cup matches were announced to resume in 2018, with two British Columbia teams facing off against teams from Oregon.[1]
