Reid lands role with Langley United
Gary Reid has been appointed full-time assistant technical director with the Langley United Soccer Association.
“Gary Reid is a highly respected soccer coach in the Fraser Valley who has worked with many outstanding teams and players,” said Langley United president Dave Kasper.
“With more than 2,000 boys and girls in Langley United, we are pleased to have him aboard in this important role as our club continues its growth and progress as a leading centre for youth soccer in the Fraser Valley, British Columbia and Canada.”
Reid will work alongside Langley United technical director Mark Parker and joins 17 other LUSA professional coaches. In total, the club has 12 provincial B licensed coaches and five B prep coaches.
Reid has an extensive background in coaching and has achieved his provincial B licence as well as a wide variety of community certifications. He is taking his national B licence course this spring.
Reid has been coaching with Langley United since 2003 and his major focus has been as the full-time head coach for the rapidly growing Langley United girls program. He is also the staff head coach for the U12 program, providing monthly player assessments for the technical director.
Among his coaching career highlights, Reid cites most recently the nine U12 players that the club developed through the Langley United grassroots program last season who graduated with the ability to play in the EA Sports B.C. Soccer Premier League, the highest level in the province.
