LEAVENWORTH SOCCER ASSOCIATION

LEAVENWORTH SOCCER ASSOCIATION

Board of Directors and Governance

History: 

On May 25, 1995 the Leavenworth Soccer Association (LSA) received their Kansas business as a not for profit corporation. Leavenworth City contracted LSA to administer a recreational soccer program to city.  The city's 10th avenue park is a soccer park that has been used by LSA for over a decade.  We've improved the park facilities by adding: the historical trolley building as an administration office; the concession building; the covered pavilion, and the paved pathway loop to the game fields.

The Leavenworth United Soccer Club (LUSC), the competitive club for LSA, played in the largest soccer youth league in the nation, the Heartland League in Kansas City, KS.  IN 2002 we played under the name of Leavenworth. According to Heartland archives we transitioned fully to the name of LUSC in our team names by 2007. A full history of all LUSC teams by season - divided by gender, age bracket and including placement in Division if they placed 3rd, 2nd, or 1st is located on the Achievements main page.  


Mission Statement

The Leavenworth Soccer Association (LSA) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization committed to the youth of our community. Our goal is to promote, coordinate, and administer, the game of soccer within Leavenworth, Kansas and the surrounding communities with emphasis on developing skills and a love for the game.
