40 Year Milestone

Recently The Corporation of Delta recognized SurDel Girls Soccer with its contribution to sport in Delta. A big thank you goes out to all the past members that have made this club what it is today. You have been a part of making this club a great place for females to play soccer whether five or fourty-five years old.

Here's to another great 40 years!

Photos From 40th Anniversary Celebration

Don Lightbody and Dianne Voice

SurDel hosted a pancake breakfast on Sunday Sept. 21 to celebrate its 40th anniversary. With the sun shining over 1300 people enjoyed pancakes throughout the morning. It was great to see our membership, coaches, past and present executive and some visiting teams enjoying themselves.
Mr. Don Lightbody the founder of Surdel was also present with his wife. Don was outfitted with our new SurDel coaching jacket, hat and scarf which he wore with a smile throughout the morning. A truly interesting man full of stories about how SurDel began back in 1974. When there was no place for girls to play soccer Don created one and formed SurDel. A special thank you goes out to the North Delta Lions Club for flipping our pancakes and to our U16 players from the SurDel Strikers and DCS Sting that came and helped make this event a success.

Here's some photos from the 40th anniversary meetup of SurDel coaches, executive and players. Check out the image gallery.

Game balls will be at all fields for you and note U8 - 6 V 6 with a size 4 ball, U9 7 V 7 with a size 4 ball, U10 - U12 will play 8 V 8 with a size 4 ball.  Good luck in all your games and thank you for working through these challenging schedule changes with us.  I know it has been tough keeping up but remember we are trying to get games in and do what we can to ensure this can happen for you all.

Please note the last changes were made at 1:00PM Saturday Feb. 8th.  We are set and ready to go.  If your morning game is that early and you would like to come to the Dennis Elsom Fieldhouse after your 8AM game this is fine we will see you then.

Skills Competition is being held at Dennis Elsom on the top grass field.  Please note last revision just came at us which is Revision 9 (Feb. 8, 1:00pm).  Thank you!  Please double check all games one last time so we have no concerns.

We will only require one person from each team to come to Dennis Elsom Turf Fieldhouse (also known as North Delta Community Park 113th & 85th) before your first scheduled game so you can hand in your Roster and get your teams bag.  Easy to park at the North Delta Rec Center and walk down (30 second walk).  We will be in the back of the Fieldhouse up the ramp so you can find us.  This Fieldhouse is located between the Ball Diamonds and the Turf Field at North Delta Community Park.  The Skills Competition will be held on the top Grass at Dennis Elsom Turf beside the Fieldhouse.

Every Team should have 4 games and yes some of you now have 3 games on 1 day due to us getting more Turf to ensure we can play these games.  The Skills Competition Schedule is now a first come first serve event so please read the top of the attachment below to see your suggested times.
Even if you can't make the suggested times please come at your convenience so we can get your team through this.

Delta Family Days Parade

SurDel was able to secure another ribbon in the Family Days Parade. Great work by all those who helped to decorate the float, walk in the parade and man the tent. Thanks for the older players giving up an early Sunday morning to buddy up with some younger players and hand out candy to the crowds. We had lots of people come by the tent and draw for some awesome prizes such as Whitecaps tickets and game balls. As the season draws to a close this week, the festivities have lent themselves as a perfect encore. Thanks to everyone who volunteered and made this all possible.

Spring Jamboree


SurDel is ending the spring season on a high note with a record turnout.  Spring registration was at an all-time high. As with all growth, there were growing pains such as uniform kafuffles and team shuffling. However, with lots of help from some dedicated coaches, equipment managers, coordinators and registrars, the season went on and the players all looked like they were having a blast on the fields. The high numbers also drove us to organize an end of spring jamboree which was a huge success. Our new events coordinator Alison Valcamp; with the help of great volunteers; was able to partner up with Tim Horton’s and Freshslice to make the Spring Jamboree a fantastic way to end the season. On behalf of SurDel, have a safe and memory making summer holiday everyone. We are looking forward to an awesome fall season starting September.
