Langley United Soccer Association is pleased to announce our participation in the Ombrelle Active Start Soccer Fests program, previously known as Mini Soccer Festivals, is an internationally recognized youth development program targeted at children under the age of 11. The festival will coincide with the last weekend or our spring soccer season 14/15 June 2014. The goal of the festival program is to introduce the sport of soccer to youth through a fun-filled event for both children and their parents. Games are played on downsized fields using smaller versions of balls, nets, and simplified rules, with an emphasis on fun, participation, and good sportsmanship. Teams are comprised of 6-7 players and are made up of both male and female participants.
The term Active Start comes from the Canadian Soccer Association’s long-term player development model, Wellness to World Cup. Active Start is the first of seven stages in the Wellness to World Cup player development pathway. This pathway promotes maximum player retention for both optimum wellness and sporting excellence. Ombrelle Active Start Soccer Fests bring together Canada’s local and regional soccer programs in a fun, family-oriented atmosphere.
More information on the event will be forthcoming later in the season.

Fall/Winter 2014 registration is now underway! It is a very busy time of year for all of us with spring season starting, the school year coming to a close, and another fall soccer season on the horizon already. We encourage families to register their children as soon as possible. There are many moving pieces to the LUSA puzzle and having our girls and boys register as soon as possible allows LUSA staff and volunteer co-coordinators enough time to plan all that is necessary for the season start in August/September.
