Wesburn Youth Soccer Club is a community organization devoted to teaching soccer skills to Burnaby's youth. WFC aspires to provide an environment where children can learn and practice the skill of soccer, and where they can learn interpersonal as well as leisure skills for life. As a community partner Wesburn FC is working to foster the development of the BC Soccer Club Charter Program. We are diligently working thru fulfilling at the necessary requirements to full acceptance into the program. Below shows you the pathway our club must follow to achieve this goal.
Wesburn Youth Soccer is an active supporter of the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model. LTPD is a CSA soccer-specific adaptation of the Long-Term Athlete Development model (LTAD) developed by Canadian Sport Centres. LTAD is a scientific model for periodized athlete training and development that respects and utilizes the natural stages of physical, mental, and emotional growth in athletes. Like the LTAD program, LTPD is designed to:
1. Promote lifelong enjoyment of physical activity.
2. Provide a structured player development pathway.
3. Describe best practices for elite player development.
4. Create long-term excellence.

Wesburn Youth Soccer Association
Wesburn Youth Soccer is one of six soccer clubs serving the city of Burnaby, British Columbia. The clubhouse is the Wesburn Community Centre at Wesburn Park. Wesburn Park is the club's divisional home field, and Harwood Park is the club's House League field.
The club accepts registration from players in the Burnaby soccer district.
Wesburn Youth Soccer is the continuance of the Wesburn Community Association founded sometime in 1949. See our history page for more information.
The club is a non-profit organization that relies on the commitment of the parents to coach (especially the younger levels), and to organize the various club activities.
An executive committee consisting of elected members oversees the operation of the club. This committee holds meetings a least once a month during the soccer season. Meetings are held at the Wesburn Community Center, located at the corner of Moscrop Avenue and Patterson Street. These meetings are generally open to the public, so come and get involved.
