GAME AND PRACTICE DAYS / TIMES OUTLINED BELOW MAY BE SUBJECT TO REVISION.

Season Kickoff: Saturday September 14

The first few weeks of September provides the Club an opportunity to assess players and set balanced teams and schedules. On September 14 and September 21, AYSC’s Club coaches will be running station-based “skills and drills” with all players and volunteer Team Leaders.

Players will be assigned a team at the end of September, and a formal game schedule will be released at that time.

U11 to U15 (Divisional Soccer)

Competitive Soccer

Aldergrove Youth Soccer Club’s Fall U11 to U15 Divisional Soccer program (sometimes referred to as “traveling teams”), endorsed and approved by BC Soccer, puts an emphasis on increasing players’ soccer skills in a competitive environment.

U11-U14

  • game outdoors on Saturday or Sunday depending on age group from September to February
  • teams practice outdoors one or two times per week; practice days / times are subject to registration numbers and field space provided by the Township of Langley
  • season ends at end of February

Optional Training Opportunities

AYSC will offer optional training led by Club Coaches to those AYSC players who are looking to improve their skills. Dates, times, fees, and payment details will be communicated once the season is underway.


Volunteer Team Leaders / Assistant Leaders Needed

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE REQUIRE VOLUNTEER TEAM LEADERS / ASSISTANT LEADERS. As work schedules and illness sometimes prevent volunteers from being available, we aim to have a minimum of two Team Leaders for every team, to ensure continuity of direction for the players. One of the biggest challenges we have in organizing the season is that not enough volunteers step forward early enough. WE CANNOT CREATE TEAMS OR SCHEDULES UNTIL WE HAVE VOLUNTEER TEAM LEADERS, IT IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

Please indicate on the form when registering if you are willing to volunteer.


Fall Season FAQs

The Fall season starts in 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).

The Developmental program is run on the turf fields at Aldergrove Athletic Park, 27 Ave. and 269 St. behind Betty Gilbert Middle School (view Google map). (U9/U10 Girls and U9/U10 Boys may have an away game via interlock with another local club.)

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 members as soon as the decision is known.

Your fees pay for:

  • BC Soccer fees
  • insurance
  • Township of Langley field charges for all-weather and grass fields
  • referees and linespersons
  • an individual and a team photo (included with registration)
  • uniforms (jersey, shorts and socks)
  • equipment (balls, cones, and nets)
  • field maintenance
  • player clinics
  • general Club operating costs (accounting, advertising, printing etc.)

Players need cleats or runners, shin guards, and a water bottle (not provided). AYSC operates a free soccer boot exchange at Aldergrove Athletic Park (Rubbermaid bins in the large container). If you need boots, check to see if there are a pair that will fit your player. If you have used boots to exchange or donate, please put them in a Rubbermaid bin on any session day.

The Government of Canada eliminated the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit in 2017. AYSC no longer provides tax receipts; if you pay by credit card when registering online, you will receive an electronic receipt upon submission.
