Developing passion for the game and love of the ball.

Vancouver United FC's philosophy for the Active Start Program is to develop PASSION FOR THE GAME and LOVE OF THE BALL. This program is based on the Canadian Soccer Association Long Term Player Development Pathway. The focus is on fun, physical literacy (learning fundamental movement skills), and soccer skill development.

At this level, players transition into a new format, playing 6-aside on slightly larger fields compared to Active Start. There is one practice during the week and a game on the weekend. The season runs from September to March.
