2020-21 COACHES REGISTRATION: OPEN NOW

Parents who register to coach (through Stack Sports) can register their children early for the First Kicks – ensuring they are able to join the same team, with their preferred schedule. This window is only available for coaches and their children. Everyone else must wait until Friday, May 8th at noon, to register.

Coaches receive a $25 credit per season (Fall, Winter, Spring) that they coach in First Kicks. The credit can be used towards the following year’s registration fee. 

We need 2-3 coaches per team, so please consider volunteering!

2020-21 GENERAL PLAYER REGISTRATION: FRIDAY, MAY 8TH AT NOON

We will be monitoring players who register during the coaches’ window (before May 8th at noon). If you register during the coaches window and you do not have a family member registered to coach, we will REMOVE you from the system and charge you the $25 admin fee. This window is meant to ensure coaches (and their kids) are able to be on the same team, and pick the time slot that best works for them. Please do not try to cheat the system, and respect that this window is to ensure all our teams have coaches. If you want to make sure you get the team you want, volunteer and register to coach in Stack Sports (click the “register” button and follow the prompts). 

  

Vancouver United FC is excited to offer its Fall / Winter First Kicks programs to all U4 to U8 players. These programs are designed to develop fundamental movement and soccer skills, particularly ball manipulation and game play. VanU’s First Kicks philosophy is to host a fun environment to improve physical literacy and develop passion for the game of soccer. 

 Registration for the Fall / Winter 2020 First Kicks program will be on a first come, first served basis and this will allow all parents to have equal opportunity to sign up for the time/day that they prefer.

For U6-U8 players, you will be signing up for a specific weekday and time, as well as a specific Saturday time. Each specific group will have a limited number of spots. When the spots have been filled, the registration will automatically close and that group will be considered full. If we must change your group’s timeslot, we will do our best to add players to a group with a similar time. 

 

If you have any questions please contact Loretta, at Loretta@vancouverunitedfc.com
