LCYSL Fall Soccer Season Update:
We had another successful registration night last night. Thanks for coming out and signing up. However, there is just not enough to make a U4 division on its own this season. We will incorporate the 4 year old players into U6 which is a typical division for that age. If you signed up for U4 and don’t want your children in U6 please let us know before Monday. However, this is, again, a typical division for a 4 year old. The divisions will be U6 (which has 6 years and under), U8 (8 and 7 year old), U11 (11,10 and 9 year old) and U14 (14, 13 and 12 year old).
Birth year registration.
The large issue this season is the new state and national initiative using just the birth year for registration. The chart that is being used by USSF and USYS places children in divisions based on birth year and the year of the season. However, looking at the chart closer, it is the year 2017 that is being used for the selection not 2016 as this is the 2016-17 season as a whole. We are inclined to hold off on moving forward with this initiative this season or, at the very least, alter it by using the year 2016 to place children in their divisions. With that change children born in 2010 will be in U6 along with their younger peers.
Calling on volunteer coaches!
Looking at the numbers of players and the number of coaches we are asking for a few more coaches in the U6 and U8 divisions. As we get the teams finalized we will be calling those who said they might coach or volunteer to help out. Without enough coaches we won’t be able to field all the children. This is common as we move from season to season but we really do need some help. There is a discount for coaching. Also, if you are intimidated or nervous about coaching, please know that there have been many like you before and will be again. Our primary goal here is to help our children have fun and work on fundamental skills. There are many many resources available, both online and right here with our own coaches. Youtube is a fantastic source as are many of the soccer coaching sites available. If you can consider coaching please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us in facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/lincoln.county.soccer/.
