Lander Valley Youth Soccer
Our goal is for children to enjoy themselves and learn the basic skills of soccer.
Fall 2018 Season: Registration opened July 16 and ran through August 5.
Season: Practices begin week of August 27. Games begin the week of September 3 and run for 6 weeks.
Eligibility: Your player must be 5 years old by August 27, 2018
Fee: $25 per player. Fees are waived for all children of parents/guardians who coach a team. If you coach, please indicate that you will pay by check and payment will be addressed at the coaches meeting. Scholarships available for families who need a little help. Please contact any board member to inquire about scholarships.
Registration: Registration is online only. Please go to our registration page for the link to register.
Late Registrations: Late registrations WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED THIS SEASON. Please register by August 5, 2018.
Games: Typically once a week, Monday through Thursday at 6pm, September 4 - October 11, 2018. Times/locations/days depend on scheduling. Coaches will contact players with the schedule for the season and it will be posted on the website after August 20.
Practices: our volunteer coaches determine the practice schedule and communicate that with players. It will be posted on the schedules page when available.
Uniforms & Shin Guards: Players need to have both a green shirt and a white shirt for game days. Shin guards are required for all players. Cleats are not required but recommended (no baseball cleats).
Fields: Games will be played at the fields north and east of the high school or at Starrett. Print a PDF map.
Referees: many of our referees are middle and high school students. We ask that you also support these students who are working hard for the program. They do a great job!
Coaching: We are always in need of coaches! Please consider coaching your child’s team as the more coaches we have, the smaller the teams are and kids get more playing time! No experience necessary. Please note: ***It will be necessary for coaches to register online using the same site as your child’s registration. A quick and simple background check is now required, which is to be completed as you register. LVYS will pay for the background check, and your player’s fee will be refunded to you. If paying by check, please indicate clearly in the memo line that you are coaching.
Board: Please contact any board member if you are interested in volunteering some time to rec soccer and helping to improve the league.
**Players and parents will be contacted by their coach following the coaches’ meeting on August 20. Players may not be changed to another team without board approval.**
Looking forward to another great Lander Youth Rec Soccer season!
