VanU is excited to announce our partnership with the Canadian Soccer Association in hosting a 2019 Active Start Festival on opening day -April 27th!!

 

Active Start - Spring 2019 

Registration for the Spring 2019 Active Start 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 would prefer. 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 – U4 and U5 has a max of 25 players while U6-U8 have a max of 12 players. 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 we are unable to offer you an acceptable alternative, we will provide a full refund minus a $10 admin fee.

Waitlist spots will open when registration is full. The waitlist will only be available for those players who have not received a spot in a regular registration package. Waitlist players will not have a choice of day or time. We will not be able to confirm a waitlist team until we register enough players and have at least two volunteer coaches. If you are on the waitlist, please expect confirmation of your situation a week before the program opens.

DURATION

This program will run for 8 weeks from April 27 to June 20, 2019. U4 and U5's have sessions once a week on Saturdays, U6-U8's have sessions twice a week, Tuesdays OR Thursdays (depending which group you sign up for) and Saturdays. Each session is one hour long.
