LSA has a great new opportunity for all rec and competitive players! We now offer an Academy Program four nights a week. Practices begin August 3rd and will be held Tuesday through Friday at the 10th Ave Soccer Park practice fields from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. Practices are open to any children currently registered for U8-U19 soccer with LSA or LUSC. No additional registration needed, players just need to show up in order to play, bringing cleats, shin guards and water.
The purpose of the Academy Program is:
i. Provide recreational players who have aspirations of becoming a more accomplished player an avenue to test and enhance his or her skills.
ii. Provide recreational players an opportunity to train with experienced coaches. Provide recreational players an opportunity to investigate the level of play with which they are comfortable, which players they would like to play with, and for which coaches they would like to play.
iii. Recruiting is not allowed on Soccer Academy teams. Soccer Academies are to be used for training, not recruiting.
iv. All players participating in a Soccer Academy who are also registered with a KSYSA member youth association recreational team shall, in the event of a conflict, consider the KSYSA recreational team to be their primary team and the Soccer Academy as a secondary commitment.
Contact Coach Ken Long for additional details or updates on practices.
