Abbotsford Soccer Association receives recognition from Canada Soccer

ASA granted ‘Quality Soccer Provider” standard by National program, return to play begins July 6

The Abbotsford Soccer Association has been granted ‘Quality Soccer Provider’ status by Canada Soccer.

The ASA made the announcement in a press release last week, stating that they have met the criteria required in its programming and planning covering club governance, administration, infrastructure, and technical development.

The ASA is one of only a few clubs in the province achieving this standard.

“We are obviously delighted to have received this nationally recognized accomplishment,” stated the ASA’s technical director Ian Knight.” The ASA will continue our drive towards ensuring our membership get the very best service, guidance, and support within all of our age/stage appropriate programs. The ASA will continue to support our three pillars of the player, the community, the game and we look forward to pursuing our goal of attaining the full National Club License in the near future.”

“The ASA has been a part of the Abbotsford community for over fifty years,” stated club president John Werrell. “We are proud of the quality programs offered, the wide variety of programming for all age groups and abilities, and the dedication and hard work of the many people involved in our club. As our city continues to grow, we will grow with it. Canada Soccer’s recognition of the fine work being done here underscores the great things happening in our club, our community, and in the game of soccer.”

The ASA has also received approval from its governing soccer bodies and local authorities to begin its ‘Return To Train’ programming. This programming, set to begin on July 6, ensures the club is following all the required safety protocols of the City of Abbotsford, all public health orders, and the expectations of B.C. and Canada Soccer for health, safety and quality programming.
