BCSPL Season Opens with great LUSA Results

Langley United’s official BCSPL season kicked off 18 June 2021. Langley United took in the Fraser Valley Premier BCSPL teams in late December 2020, when the Preston GM Club / Fraser Valley Premier Club was put under suspension. It has been a very long wait for the ball to start rolling in competitive matches due to the pandemic.

However, this past weekend, we put all of that behind us.Langley United kicked off the official BCSPL program on Friday evening when our 2003 girls, team hosted Mountain United FC at Willoughby Community Park playing out to an exciting 0-0 draw. The 2 original 2008 LUSA Boys and Girls teams travelled to UBC on Saturday and Sunday respectively, where they faced Vancouver United FC and both returned to Langley with wins and 3 points each in the bag.

Saturday morning saw the Mountain United FC visit Noel Booth Turf to face our 2008 boys, 2007 boys and the 2006 boys. The 2008s were comfortable 5 – 0 winners, the 2007 were on the end of a 0-3 loss while the 2006 boys earned a point with a 1 – 1 draw.

Sunday morning it was the girls turn at Noel Booth, and they did not disappoint. The morning kicked off with the 2007 girls at 9am with a comfortable 2 – 0 win over Mountain United FC, this was followed up with wonderful display of football from the 2006 girls who put 5 goals past their Mountain opposition. The 2005 girls put in a fine display of guts and character and came away with a 2 – 1 win. The 2003 girls, playing their very last game as youth players faced Fusion FC and they gain a point with a 1 – 1 draw. The 2008 girls were up against a very talented Mountain United FC team and ended up on the wrong side of a 1 – 4 loss.

Overall, the official opening of the LUSA BCSPL program was a fantastic success!

Langley United awarded BCSPL (BC Soccer Premier League)

Breaking News – Langley United Soccer Awarded BCSPL February 2, 2020 BC Soccer News Release Here.

Langley United Soccer Association (LUSA) is pleased to advise that we have joined the already announced 39 clubs nationwide to be awarded Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licence.

As the highest amateur youth club designation in Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program, the National Youth Club Licence recognizes the highest achieving organizations from across Canada. The Program is a key component to Canada Soccer’s Safe Sport Roster that was announced with unanimous support by its membership in May of 2019.

Langley United has been granted the National Youth Club Licence for a period of two years and have created a collaborative work plan to ensure that we continue to meet the requirements, while also continuing to progress to further achieve the highest standards set by Canada Soccer. National Youth Club Licence holders display characteristics and demonstrate behaviours aligned with the highest expectations of governance, administration, infrastructure, and technical. 

LUSA President Marcel Horn said “It is truly a great day for our club. For the past 5 years LUSA has been working tirelessly with BC Soccer and more recently Canada Soccer to achieve the necessary national licensing standards to be able to offer the highest level of youth soccer in our province, the BCSPL. We are thrilled to say that today we have achieved our goal!   I would like to thank our Technical Directors, board members, and coaches for their exceptional commitment to this endeavour over the past 5 years. I feel privileged to work with such a dedicated, talented group and I am very excited to be able to offer LUSA BCSPL teams to our players and membership going forward. We are incredibly proud of the quality of our youth programming here at LUSA, Canada Soccer has taken notice of all that we have accomplished as a club by awarding us with the Canada Soccer National Youth Club License. #LUSAPROUD”

Technical Director Mark Parker said “We are very proud of our Club and the efforts of each board member and staff member that has contributed to our success. It is a great step forward for LUSA, who will now join the ranks of the highest level of programming in BC, the BCSPL.

This will see the instruction of the 2008 birth year players for the upcoming 2020/21 Fall season. It will be a tough road ahead, not only do we want to place the highest quality program in BC, but the program that each player desires to be part of. We look forward to continuing to work with

BC Soccer and Canada Soccer in the future, for the benefit of the game, the players that play it and the families that support and watch, good times ahead.”
Why have we fought so hard for this licensing?  LUSA has always set a very high standard for player development. However, every year our top players have had to consider switching clubs by the U13 level if they were interested in pursuing training at the BCSPL level. Indeed, we have a large number of LUSA players already playing with other clubs in the BCSPL for this reason. 

We are thrilled to be able to offer our high performance players the opportunity to play at the BCSPL level, and not have to travel outside of our club or community to do it. The number of hours many of our former players have spent commuting just to be able to participate in the BCSPL is eye opening- we would much rather all of those driving hours were actually spent on the pitch! Now that LUSA has the National Youth Club License, our players will finally have the opportunity to pursue whatever level of soccer they want, right here at home.
