North Langley Football Association announce the addition of a Midget Division football team to their association.

To kick off their new season, North Langley Football Association is hosting a free spring football camp for youth aged six to 18 years of age, with guest coach Manny Arceneaux from the BC Lions.

The Free Spring Football Camp takes place on Sunday, May 15, 1-3 p.m. at Walnut Grove Secondary School’s oval, 8919 Walnut Grove Drive, Langley.

Guest coach Manny Arceneaux from the BC Lions and players and coaches from the Langley Rams will be running drills with the attendees. Hot dogs and drinks will be served after the training session.

“Reviving our Midget program is huge,” said North Langley Football Association president, Steve Aasen.

The addition of the Midget Division allows players to continue playing football with North Langley between 16 and 18 years of age, where previously, the last available division ended for players at 15.

Many high schools in Langley do not offer a football program, and families have found themselves enrolling their children in schools in neighbouring cities in the hopes of continuing their athletic pursuit.  Midget Division football allows for players to further develop their skills, with potential of connecting with Junior football and colleges actively seeking new players.
