LUSA provides a full game kit (jersey, shorts, socks) to each player. Each player is responsible for having his own soccer shoes and shin pads; otherwise, he will not be permitted to participate in training or games. LUSA branded training apparel and team gear is available through our new in-house apparel program. See link (graphic) at top of page for more information on sizing and ordering.

 

 


U4 & U5 (Co-ed)

LUSA runs a 6 to 8 week program for players as an introduction to sports and soccer. The program runs once a week beginning in early September, usually on Sunday afternoon / evening. Exact day/time/location is made available in August. Program is coached and run by LUSA Staff Coaches with the assistance from some of our Youth players giving back to the game they've learned to love.

There is a requirement that parents partake in some of the activities, which would include keeping the ball within the playing area, motivating the players by cheering and encouraging etc

LUSA runs the U5 Program 3 times per year. Fall, Winter, and in the Spring.

U6 players will be placed into teams based on school catchment, home address, and requests. (ideal team/local placement is not guaranteed, every effort will be made, but sometimes not possible)

U7 players will be grouped into two like-minded (Streams÷ in each age group. These streams are created via 2-4 evaluation sessions as well as input from the past years U6 coaches. The schedule will be released in late August or early September. Once players are split into streams, the teams will then be formed based upon a) school catchment, then b) player requests. Priority is to keep teams balanced and to avoid powerhouse teams. Coaches and players will be assigned and practices/games will begin by mid-September.

U8-U10 teams will be adjusted each season based on previous season's evaluations and rosters. Movement between streams will be initiated by the LUSA technical department upon recommendation from coaches, staff, and if necessary, a brief evaluation session will be held if needed. Movement is still possible early & midseason upon notification from coaches only.

Parents will receive initial contact in Late August. Training begins the first week of September, dependent on age group. Teams will be formed through the process as outlined in the LUSA Long-Term Player Development Program. The program involves one weeknight training session and one weekend game day per week. However at the U10 developmental level we do suggest that two training sessions are held. The club and teams take a winter break around the first week of December, resuming in early/mid January. The season continues until early March (around spring break) including our year-end windup Mini-World Cup Tournament Event.
