Developmental (U5-U10) Reminders

No Games Sat. Nov. 9

There will be no outdoor games on the turf this Sat. Nov. 9 due to the holiday long weekend.


All players, coaches, and parents should ALWAYS exercise good sportsmanship. All comments from players, parents and fans should be kept positive — model good sportsmanship and cheer ALL good plays regardless of the team making the play. Any coach hearing unsportsmanlike comments from their own players should consider appropriate action (e.g. benching that player for a game). If you hear an opposing player making unsportsmanlike comments, please bring it to the other coach’s attention for their followup.


Our Developmental referees are young and learning. Coaches, parents and fans should refrain from directing comments about a referee’s calls (missed calls, wrong calls, etc.) to the referee directly – abuse of referees will not be tolerated. We welcome you to provide feedback on referee performance by contacting our head referee Art Bandenieks at any time at Art works continually over the season to educate and improve our referees, and your support of these young officials is appreciated.

Parking at AAP

Please do not park in front of any gates or chain at Aldergrove Athletic Park / Betty Gilbert Elementary. These areas must be kept clear for emergency access and you risk being towed if you park in these areas. DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES in your vehicle – we have heard that cars are being broken into in the evenings.

Gym Practices

Most Developmental teams will start gym practices this week. Please note that players should wear indoor runners and not cleats when in the gym.

Please note that the gym at Parkside Elementary will be unavailable to us on Nov. 20 and 21 due to school functions (no indoor practices / games on these days at Parkside only).

Gym practices at all gyms will end at the beginning of December, when schools take over the gyms in preparation for holiday concerts and activities. Gym practices will start again in January when school returns.


Photos should be available next week (Nov. 16) – Club Registrar Angie will be at AAP to hand them out on Saturday. Retake day will be Wednesday Dec. 4 in the evening, exact time and location TBA.
