A half-century of soccer

North Delta club to celebrate 50 years in the community

The North Delta Soccer Club (NDSC) will celebrate 50 years of operation as a sports organization on Sept. 22 at Mackie Park (10900 of 82 Ave.).

The club is expecting roughly 1,000 people to attend the day-long event, which will feature soccer games, clinics and other activities.

“It’s going to be action-packed,” said Ryan Galovich, president of NDSC. “The celebration is going to be three-fold. We want to do something for the kids and for the past alumni, we want to do something for the coaches and we want to do something for the parents.”

Games for the kids will begin at 10 a.m., with North Delta’s Fraser Valley Soccer League Premier Division team conducting a clinic from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A barbecue hosted by the North Delta Lions Club, a meet and greet for players past and present, and a soccer museum with pictures of North Delta soccer over the last half-century are among the attractions. The men’s team will play at 2 p.m., with an alumni game at 3:30 p.m.

There’s a barbecue hosted by the North delta Lions from 1 to 2 p.m., meet and greets with players of all eras, and a soccer museum featuring photos detailing the club’s history. The North Delta Premier Men’s Soccer Club will play against a currently undecided team at 2 p.m., followed by an alumni game at 3: 30 p.m.

The club is also running a video contest for all registered players, referees and coaching staff for the 2012 season.

“Anybody can grab a video camera and do a short video,” said Galovich. “It’s essentially anything

relevant to soccer and what it means to them.”
