VanU is pleased to offer Safe Soccer Programs during the school summer holidays.


All of our VanU Camp and Academy Programs are operating under the guidelines of the Return to Play (RTP) protocol of BC Soccer and the Provincial Health Office. These will be non-contact programs where players are placed into groups based on age and ability to ensure they are challenged appropriately, maximizing their development and most importantly, having fun!
