Developmental Soccer (U5-U10)

Fitness & Fun!

U5 to U10

Aldergrove Youth Soccer Club’s Fall Developmental Soccer program, endorsed and approved by BC Soccer, is a “house”-level program that puts an emphasis on basic soccer skills development, fitness and fun.

The Fall season starts the beginning of September after school starts and goes to the end of February. The season will break for the Christmas holidays (approximately 2nd week of December through 2nd week of January).

U5/U6 teams have a game outdoors on Saturday mornings from September to December, and a split practice / game Wednesday evenings in September and October. In November all U5/U6 teams move indoors to a gym for split practice / games on a weeknight evening, schedule TBA (no outdoor Saturday games for U5/U6s during the normally cold and rainy months of January and February).

U7-U10 games are played outdoors every Saturday morning from September to February.

Volunteer Team Leaders Needed

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO OPERATE THE SPRING PROGRAM UNLESS WE HAVE ENOUGH PARENTS / GUARDIANS STEP FORWARD TO LEAD TEAMS. The Spring program is low-key and does not require a lot of ‘coaching’ – we only need volunteers to help manage the number of players on the field and substitutions. To indicate your willingness to volunteer, please circle the appropriate box on the registration form.

Are games played in the rain / snow?

Games are played regardless of the degree of rain. However, fields are sometimes closed by the Township of Langley due to too much water on the field. In the event of snow on the field, all games will be cancelled. If the fields are deemed unplayable, the Club will email all coaches and parents as soon as the decision is known.
