Langley United squads medal at provincials

Fine showing at B.C. championships for LUSA squads

Langley United Soccer Association squads were on point at the B.C. provincial championships last week.

LUSA sent four teams (68 youth) to the provincials and all four of its teams played in medal games.

At the metro level, LUSA’s U15 boys team captured gold and its U17 boys took silver, while the association’s U16 girls Division 1 seized bronze and the U17 Division 1 girls placed fourth, respectively.

Additionally, LUSA spearheaded an initiative with its partners, the Fraser Valley Metro Selects, to expand metro level programing at the critical U13 age.

This resulted in a new western and eastern-based FV Metro program. Players coming through Langley United’s extensive development program now have affordable and geographically friendly access to metro’s high level of soccer play.

This spring, LUSA and the Fraser Valley Selects welcomed the first western-based girls and boys metro teams at the U13 level.

In their first six weeks of play, the U13 boys metro team were gold medalists at the Starfire Tournament in Seattle, gold medalists at the SX Tournament in Surrey, and silver medalists at the Umbro Cup in South Surrey.

Langley United Soccer Association offers soccer programing for players aged three all the way to men’s and women’s teams.

ABOUT LUYSA

Established in 1926, LUSA started as a small club of enthusiastic footballers and has now grown into the largest recreation club within its district of the Fraser Valley. With more than 4500 members, LUSA’s development program offers three streams of play, and a technical staff with professional soccer experience.
