An award-winning Grade 12 student at Langley Christian School, Aidan Kits is taking high level academic courses, focusing on math and science, and has maintained a consistent 95 per cent average.

Equally strong on the field, he has played volleyball, basketball, and soccer at the gold and silver level.

Aidan has also been involved in cross country and track and field, with both his school and with the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club.

With the Mustangs, he practices five days a week as part of the gold performance group.

A constant top-ten performer, he competed in the 2010 B.C. Summer Games and took third place in the 400m competition at the 2013 provincial high school track and field championships.

A volunteer referee and scorekeeper who looks after children at his church, Kits is interning with his school’s athletic director to help organize schedules and tournaments.

He also volunteered at the NORCECA Continental volleyball tournament.
