Soccer School Cancelled
Like many of you, we have been monitoring provincial public health updates daily. The provincial health order banning gatherings of more than 50 people means that our annual soccer school will no longer take place this summer. Let’s not lose the gains we’ve made against COVID-19. Stay well and look out for one another.
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.
Ages: 5-10 years
Cost (children in groups must be from the same family):
1st Child $110
2 Children $210
3 Children $300
4 Children $390
5 Children $480

The program is also extremely popular for the coaching staff – we have a 95% return of previous coaching staff. We will initially contact previous coaches to determine if they are available for the new season. If there are positions to be filled by new volunteers, organizers will review emails received by those interested.
NOTE: Minimum age requirement is 13.
Those interested in volunteering their time as a coach MUST email the following:
- Full name
- Date of birth
- Phone number
- Soccer experience
- Coaching experience
- Why you feel you would be an asset to the New Westminster Police Soccer School
