Welcome to the LCRD Youth Soccer Program! The goal of this program is to promote health, physical fitness, good sportsmanship, learning of fundamentals, and to provide a fun and worthwhile activity for participants, coaches, and parents. We hope that the following information will answer most of your questions.
*TEAM FORMATION: Evalutions will be conducted for each league for the purpose of dividing teams as evenly as possible. It is critical that each participant attend the Evalution for their age division.
*UNIFORMS: Each participant will be issued a jersey, shorts, and socks. Each participant must wear shinguards, which may be purchased from LCRD. Shinguards must be worn under socks. Complete uniform must be worn to all games. Uniform issue will be coordinated through the team coach. Participants may keep the uniform, including shorts.
*TROPHIES: A single elimination tournament will be conducted at the end of the regular season to determine League Champion and Runner-Up in the 8-9 and older age divisions. Regular season won-loss records will determine seedings for the tournament. Trophies will be awarded to the first and second place teams at the end of the tournament. Leagues for 4-7 year olds are for training only, with no score or standings kept and no end of the season tournament. Participation certificates will be issued to all participants.
*PRACTICES AND GAMES: Teams are allowed to meet no more than 3 times per week, including games. Practices are not to exceed 2 hours in length. Games will be played on weekday evennings, starting in early October. The season will end in mid-November. Game schedules will be issued to the team coach prior to the start of the season.
*SPORTSMANSHIP: Learning good sportsmanship is an important part of the sports experience for children and is a very high priority at LCRD. Players, coaches, and spectators will be requored to demonstrate good sportsmanship at all times. Taunting or yelling at opposing players, teams, or the officials will not be allowed. Adults must serve as good role models by exhibiting good sportsmanship as spectators.
