West Side First Kicks

West Side First Kicks U9-U10 is the regular version of our First Kicks U9-U10 program (formerly known as House). The program has not been altered with the addition of Downtown and East Side First Kicks. The name change is simply to distinguish the different versions of First Kicks we have available for families all across Vancouver. Each version of First Kicks has a slightly different set of program details (location, sessions per week, cost, etc) so please select the version that best fits your needs.

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.
