About Soccer School

The New Westminster Police Summer Soccer School is a unique recreation program bringing together police officers and youth for a fun filled week. The program is limited to children aged 5 to 10 years. The school runs for five days and involves approximately 300 children. The coaches include police officers and volunteers including community soccer players and graduates of the soccer school. The soccer school was introduced in 1981 and has become a flagship community program for the police department.

Although soccer instruction is the foundation of this program, the participants are exposed to many other activities throughout the week. These include a demonstration from the Police Service Dog Section, an orientation of various police vehicles and a visit from the New Westminster Fire Department.

The 2019 New Westminster Soccer School runs from July 15 – July 19.
