CSA National Youth Club License
Surrey United Soccer Club is one of Canada Soccer’s first-ever
National Youth Club Licence holders.
(August 5, 2019) Surrey United Soccer Club has been announced as one of Canada Soccer’s first-ever Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licence holders. As the highest amateur youth club designation in Canada, the National Youth Club Licence recognizes the highest achieving organizations from across Canada. The Program is also a key component to Canada Soccer’s Safe Sport Roster that was announced with unanimous support by its membership in May 2019.
“We are pleased to announce the exemplary 39 National Youth Club Licence holders that have worked diligently over the past 12 months to demonstrate a willingness to improve, to collaborate, and most importantly to raise the level of youth football in our country,” said Jason DeVos, Canada Soccer’s Director of Development. “Each club worked with Canada Soccer and their respective Provincial and Territorial Member Association to define a roadmap of standards designed to improve the experience for all who participate in the game.”
National Youth Club Licence holders display characteristics and demonstrate behaviours aligned with the highest expectations of governance, administration, infrastructure, and technical; support their Provincial and Territorial Member Association and Canada Soccer Pathways.
Canada Soccer’s Club Licensing Program was launched in 2017 with the Canada Soccer Professional Club Licence. Canada Soccer announced the expansion of the program to youth soccer in 2018 in collaboration with Provincial and Territorial Association Members and incorporating international best practices.

SUSC also holds a BC Soccer Club Charter Program license, awarded in 2017.
