We are proud to announce the revival of our cherished walking soccer program for residents in the Lower Mainland. Walking Soccer Aims to promote an active lifestyle and strengthen community member relationships.
Popularized in the UK, Walking Soccer is identical to the conventional sport but it comes with one catch: no running. This is ideal for athletes and soccer enthusiasts wanting to partake in a less intense yet active and social game. We welcome all ages, whether you are recovering from an injury, looking for a fresh fitness regime, looking for a bonding activity with your kids or you simply just want to meet new people and have fun.
Our goal is to help you maintain positive physical and mental health through low-intensity aerobic exercise. Our Summer program is registration based, and welcomes all ages.
WHY CHOOSE WALKING SOCCER?
Walking soccer is different to regular soccer in many ways. This low-impact version of the beautiful game is ideal for those with mobility issues, for those who are unable to play the game in its traditional format and for those who are looking to try something new and have fun! Men and women of all ages are welcome to join in!

About Fraser Valley Walking Soccer
Soccer enthusiasts who are determined to promote the physical and mental wellness of individuals who face barriers to participate in a regular soccer game developed Fraser Valley Walking Soccer.
Fraser Vally Walking Soccer is a non-profit program aimed at promoting the wellness of people through modified soccer that is inclusive, fun and sociable. This 5-a-side version of the game is slow-paced but lacks none of the passion or excitement of the original game.
Our mission is to provide a positive soccer experience, inspire participation, and have an impact on physical and mental wellbeing.
