This Team program is offered to help the dedicated and committed fall teams the opportunity to stay together through an additional 3 month period providing those teams/players the opportunity to experience playing in a different environment – Tournaments.

Where teams do not move forward as one, we will place like-skilled players into one team (This may involve a period of evaluation, at the discretion of the appointed staff coach).

All Divisional Spring Academy teams will receive 2 training sessions/wk. One session will be led by an appointed Staff Coach and the 2nd session will be run by the appointed parent-volunteer coach. While licenced technical staff coaches are overseeing the program, parent volunteer coaches are required to oversee the teams. As the club’s way of thanking these parent volunteers, we offer free registration to those completing the commitment for the entire program along with some club gear.

Divisional Spring teams may have the option to ‘hire’ a staff coach, on a full-time basis, based on availability. (cost on application).

Individual tournament entry fees are NOT included in your registration. In addition, teams are responsible for covering the accommodation costs of a staff coach, should they choose to attend a tournament requiring overnight stay.

Teams formed within the Divisional Spring Academy program will be eligible to participate in the Spring Development League, incorporating clubs through the Fraser Valley.

Divisional fall teams wishing to move forward into spring and those wishing to retain a staff coach on a full-time basis should contact Ian Knight (td@abbotsfordsoccer.com) ASAP…

    This popular recreation program has been extended from the 2016/17 Fall season.

Each week, both sessions of the Spring Street Soccer League will be game-based, offering 24 games throughout the course of the program. The program is designed to allow for player based, fun, creative, and free flowing sessions allowing players to experiment, learn, and develop new skills in a recreational setting. No formal coaching sessions are scheduled.

Players will be grouped into ‘teams’ of 9 for the games that will use the 7v7 format. (i.e. 2 subs per team). 

This program will be overseen by a Club Coach.  A Parent Volunteer Facilitator is required for each ‘team’ to ensure players get fair playing time and are subbed on and off in an expedient manner.  These volunteers will also work together to ensure teams are ‘fair’.  No real knowledge of soccer is required by the Facilitators, just a sense of fair play.  Those selected to be our Parent Volunteer Facilitators will receive free registration and club coaching kit.  The free registration will take the form of a refund or club credit following the completion of the program. 

The philosophy behind small-sided games allows each player more touches on the ball, free movement on a smaller pitch, and lots of opportunities to score.

Total registrations from each age group will determine how teams and age groups will be formed.

All players receive an ASA tshirt.
