Spring Competitive Soccer (Cascadia League) FAQs

Have questions about what AYSC’s Spring Cascadia League is about? See below for some answers to frequently asked questions.

What is the Spring Cascadia League?

The Cascadia League is similar to our Fall program for older players, in that players play one competitive game a week on the weekend, usually Saturdays (either a “home” game at Aldergrove Athletic Park or an “away” game in neighbouring communities like Langley, Abbotsford and Chilliwack). Cascadia teams also train two evenings a week (either Monday / Wednesday or Tuesday / Thursday). Some aspects of these practice sessions will be led by a Club Coach to focus on technical skill development.

We will not be able to finalize Cascadia teams’ weeknight training evenings until AYSC receives a field contract from the Township of Langley.

How is AYSC’s Spring Recreational Soccer Program Different from Cascadia?

AYSC’s Spring Recreational Soccer is considered a “house” league, in that teams do not travel or play against other clubs (all activities take place at Aldergrove Athletic Park). The focus is on fitness and fun. The Spring Recreational program only runs weeknights – there are no Saturday games. See for tentative specific evenings for specific age groups.

The overall goal for AYSC’s Spring programming is to find the best fit for each player to enhance their development.

What is the Process for Registering for Cascadia League? For Recreational Soccer?

The process for registering for either Cascadia League or Recreational Soccer programs is the same – visit for details and to register online. When registering, you can select the program you are interested in for your player(s). If your player is interested in participating in Cascadia please register them by February 23 and indicate you want to be considered for a travelling Cascadia team.

How are Players Selected for AYSC Cascadia League Teams?

AYSC runs player evaluations at the end of each Fall season to assist the Club in determining Cascadia League placements. (These evaluations also help the Club to look ahead to team makeup for the next Fall season.) See Spring 2024 Player Evaluations for details.

The top-level competitive travelling Cascadia teams (“Div 1”) in each different age grouping will have player selections and rosters set by the end of this week, with announcements going out soon.

Once Div 1 teams are selected, remaining Cascadia teams will be formed based on the total number of players who indicate interest in the Cascadia League when registering, the number of volunteer coaches that indicate they are willing to take on a Cascadia team, and meeting the needs of each player for their development.

What Are the Fees for Cascadia League? For Recreational Soccer?

When registering for AYSC’s Spring season, all players pay a $175 fee. If your player is selected for the Cascadia League, an additional $125 will be collected at the start of the season to cover Club coaches, additional field time, referees, etc.
