Message from Head Coach Trevor Wight

Dear Royals Family, 

On behalf of the Valley Royals’ coaching staff and board of directors, a very happy new year to you all.   Looking back, I am very proud of how everyone in our club weathered the storm that was 2020.    It was truly a team effort.  Decades from now, our current athletes will be able to look back and proudly say “I trained through a pandemic”.   Although there remains much uncertainty as we begin 2021, we want to assure you that we will continue to offer the best possible programming for all ages and abilities, even if it is not yet business as usual.    As safety for all remains our number one priority, we will continue to follow all current and future provincial health orders.   With you, we look forward to brighter days ahead.   

Yours in Sport, 

Trevor Wight, Head Coach 

Membership Prices Remain Same for 2021

BC Athletics has announced a modest discount on BC Athletics Insurance for 2021. Savings range from $15 for JDs to $23.63 for U18 and up (around $20 per athlete on average). Due to this discount, there will not be an increase in membership prices to cover the cost of Covid safety equipment, sanitizer and signage etc. Club memberships will remain the same price in 2021 as they were in 2020.
