Langley club suspended by soccer district

Fraser Valley Youth Soccer Association says local group failed to pay annual fees

A Langley soccer club has been suspended by the regional district.

Fraser Valley Youth Soccer Association (FVYSA) posted an announcement to its website saying Langley FC was suspended on Friday, Dec. 4 after it failed to pay its annual fees, a breach of the association’s constitution.

“The board may declare a member to be not in good standing who has failed to pay the current annual membership fee, if any, or any other subscription or debt due and owing by the member to the association or fails to comply with the requirements of these Bylaws,” the announcement said.

“As long as the debt remains unpaid and/or non-compliance remains, the member is not in good standing and loses all rights of membership.”

On Monday, Dec. 7, Thomas Mills, the club’s executive director told the Langley Advance Times the club is “taking all actions to comply with the suspension.”

Mills said the club would be releasing a more detailed statement by the club president later in the week.
