AYSC Fall 2021/2022 Season Details

U5-U10 Developmental Season Kickoff: Saturday September 18

AYSC’s Fall 2021/2022 U5-U10 season kickoff will take place Saturday September 18 – we’re excited to get the season started!

See AYSC Fall 2021/2022 U5-U10 Season Kickoff – Saturday September 18 for details.

The first few weeks of September provides the Club an opportunity to assess players and set balanced teams and schedules. From September 18–September 25, 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.

Where are games played?

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.)

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.

Where do my registration fees go?

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.)

Where can I get a tax receipt?

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.

What is the refund policy?
