AFTER SCHOOL SOCCER PROGRAM

The Prince George Youth Soccer Association has implemented an after school soccer program for elementary schools here in Prince George. For an extra hour each week, children are able to express themselves through sport and teamwork, and parents are relieved of finding childcare. Through amazing sponsors such as viaSport and Integris Credit Union, the Prince George Youth Soccer Association has been able to purchase equipment for the schools, hire certified staff coaches and organize an end of the season tournament for friendly competition.

Sport participation has been associated with a range of personal and social developmental benefits. By providing a free of charge after school soccer program, children from all economic statuses are able to participate in soccer and benefit in a multitude of ways.

Schools participating in our program:

Westwood Elementary
Quinson Elementary
Nusdeh Yoh Elementary
Spruceland Elementary
Van Bien Elementary
Ron Brent Elementary
Peden Hill Elementary

 Thank you to our amazing sponsors!!
