Spring break soccer camps filling quickly

Langley United Youth Soccer Association's second annual free "Complete Player" spring break soccer camp for U7 to U13 girls and boys

Langley United Youth Soccer Association will be holding its second annual free “Complete Player” spring break soccer camp for U7 to U13 girls and boys on March 13, 14 and 15.

Pre-registration for this free camp is required at www.luysa.com and all registrants will be eligible for a draw to win one of four family passes to an upcoming Whitecaps game.

The Complete Player three-day camp will be held daily from 9 to 10:30 a.m. for U7 to U10 while the U11 to 13 camp will follow from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Activities for each session will be built around soccer-specific skills and soccer-related activities including “4 vs. 4” games, speed and agility training, sprinting technique training, soccer tennis, shooting on goal and soccer-specific fitness – all designed to help develop the complete player.

Groups will rotate through the development stations learning the fundamental skills required to excel at the beautiful game. All coaches will be certified LUYSA staff coaches or professionals within their own fields.

“Langley United pioneered the free spring break camp in Langley and this year our technical experts have focused on providing girls and boys with important soccer-related skill development programs while also making sure they have fun learning the beautiful game,” said Langley United president Betty Boucas. “Boys and girls will have plenty of fun along with some serious technique development in our Complete Player camps.”

Parents are advised to pre-register early for this free spring break camp at www.luysa.com. They will be contacted closer to spring break with additional details.

Langley United will also play host to its second annual boys and girls U5 (born 2007) and U6 (2006) spring break camp during the second week of spring break from 9 to 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, March 20-22. Registration for this camp is free but pre-registration is required at www.luysa.com. A maximum of 40 boys and 40 girls will be registered.

“Parents may be looking for something active and fun for boys and girls to do during the second week of spring break and Langley United’s U5 and 6 morning camp is the ticket,” says Boucas. “However, they do need to register right away as all of LUYSA’s free spring break camps should fill up quickly.”
