LUSA Celebrates Approval of Phase One for NEW Smith Athletic Park – YOUTH SOCCER CAMPUS

LANGLEY, February 26 2024: Langley United Soccer Association (LUSA) is delighted to announce a significant milestone in the realization of the NEW Smith Athletic Park. Today, Mayor Woodward and the esteemed Council have voted in favor of Phase One, marking a pivotal moment in our community’s sporting infrastructure.

This achievement stands as a testament to a promise fulfilled—a promise made to our members and the wider community. It is a humbling experience to witness our collective vision materialize into reality. Through the unwavering support of our membership, we have empowered a Mayor and Council committed to investing in the betterment of our community.

In a world filled with distractions, the NEW Smith Athletic Park emerges as a beacon for personal growth, offering our youth a space to challenge themselves, expand their horizons, foster teamwork, and evolve into resilient citizens.

On behalf of our entire membership, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Mayor Woodward and the Council for prioritizing the safety and future of our community’s youth. This monumental achievement would not have been possible without their dedication and foresight.

We also wish to recognize the invaluable contributions of President Mike Thomson, Technical Director Mark Parker, and Executive Director Marcel Horn. Through their steadfast leadership and tireless advocacy for our club, they have played an integral role in shaping the future of soccer in Langley.

Phase One of the NEW Smith Athletic Park sets the stage for our LUSA teams to grace the pitch as early as fall 2025. Looking ahead, Phase Two aligns with our 100-year centennial celebration and the eagerly anticipated arrival of the World Cup in 2026.

As we embark on this transformative journey, we invite our community to stay tuned. Langley is synonymous with soccer, and we take immense pride in calling it our home.

LUSA Photo Day – October 14th – 15th

Photo Package Catalogue: HERE
Order Form: HERE


Dear Members,

As previously communicated, there has been a change in the venue for our picture days due to unforeseen circumstances. The event will proceed this weekend as planned, maintaining the same schedule. The new location is 22661 Fraser Highway in Langley. Look out for the LUSA flags that will be placed on either side of the entrance to the parking lot.

Please be aware that this year, parking might be a bit more challenging as there are other businesses on the same property, resulting in a higher volume of people coming and going. If you find it difficult to park at the venue, there’s a Big Box Outlet nearby, as well as street parking on 228th which is a short walk away, which could be  good alternatives.

We strongly encourage carpooling this year whenever possible to alleviate parking congestion.

To ensure a seamless entry and exit from the property secured off of Fraser Highway, we will require the cooperation of every member. Please refer to the attached site map for information on vehicle flow, player drop-off, and designated parking. Recommend that you approach the property from the East bound lanes of Fraser Highway for easiest entry!

Here are some important guidelines for the event:

  • **Every car entering the property must drop their player off before seeking parking at the designated player drop-off point.
  • There will be 10×10 tents at the drop-off zone, and all players will be staged inside a covered warehouse to shield them from any inclement weather.
  • Once you’ve parked, there is a parent waiting area at the rear of the building should you wish to lead your youth back to the vehicle. All players will be exiting at the rear of the building.
  • Parents will not be allowed inside the staging area.
  • Please have photo envelopes filled out prior to arriving at the venue and coaches please have roster forms filled out with all players names. Remember to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled photo time.

The Photo envelopes are still available for pickup at the Willoughby community park clubhouse anytime in the evening when the front door is open for one person from each team to pick up.

Special Note ***

U14 girls team Falcons will be selling donuts, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate as a fundraiser.
$2 a donut 
$10 1/2 dozen 
$20 / dozen 
Coffee $2
Tea $2 
Hot chocolate $2 

We are still looking for volunteers for this event. Please consider volunteering in one of the below time slots to make this event a huge success again this year.

Saturday October 14

Group C 3:45PM – 7:15PM

Sunday October 15

Group E 12:45PM – 4:00PM

Group F 3:45PM – 7:15PM

We anticipate 90 cars and 6 teams to be on site at any given time, so please be cautious when maneuvering in and out of designated parking areas, and be mindful of your speed when entering and exiting the property.

By following these instructions, we are confident that we can ensure a smooth and safe photo session. We greatly appreciate your support in helping us make LUSA PROUD.

LUSA Alumnus Brady Chapman signs with STU Tommies Soccer Program

Head Coach John-Ryan Morrison has gone with back-to-back recruit from BC with the latest announcement of Brady Chapman joining the Tommies Men’s Soccer squad.

Chapman, from the lower mainland of British Colombia, heads to Fredericton in late August and is excited at the prospect of the University student life.

“I chose STU since it has a fantastic soccer program and the academic concentration I was looking for,” mentions the Langley United product.  “STU offers a very high standard of education and the opportunity to be a successful student athlete.”

Being a goalkeeper comes with special traits on the backend of the field and Brady is looking forward to bringing his brand between the pipes.

“You can expect me to bring a lot of passion, enthusiasm and hard work. I cannot wait to be a part of the Tommies soccer program.”

Coach Morrison identified a need that Chapman may bring forward.  

“We had an immediate need for a rookie keeper capable of pushing for a starting role and I think Brady has all the attributes to be that guy,” lauds Morrison.  “He is good with the ball at his feet, he commands the box on crosses and he is vocal.”

The bench boss continues to recruit from coast to coast and lands another solid player in Chapman who should make the transition easily to the ACAA. 

“It is a big step to move coast to coast but I think he has the right attitude to be a successful student-athlete at STU.”

Brady is the latest addition to the Men’s Soccer team for the 2023-2024 season after the announcements of Kiran Hollman Prichard, Laurent Lambert, Oliver Altemeyer, and Bright Olaonis.

The 2023 ACAA Soccer schedule will be announced in May, with Season Passes on sale in August and training camp opening in late August for the STU Soccer teams.
