Aldergrove Youth Soccer Club has launched an ambitious project to bring the fun and healthy action of soccer to local Aldergrove schools. AYSC is only the second soccer club in BC to offer the BC Soccer-endorsed “Kickin’ Soccer in Schools” program, where Club representatives go into local elemantary schools to put on soccer clinics and introduce students to “the beautiful game”. The aim of the program is to get students moving, build confidence, develop respect for self and others, and create a sense of fair play by building on the key soccer attributes of balance, agility and coordination, running, ball handling, team play and concentration.
The Aldergrove Kickin’ Soccer in Schools program is funded by Aldergrove Youth Soccer with a grant from BC Lotteries and Legacies 2010.
