What ages play with the soccer club?
The club focuses on 4th-6th grade players. Teams play a fall and spring season each year.
Who coaches for the soccer club?
The club runs strictly on volunteer parents much like all of our youth sports with Community Education.
Why is the soccer club not a part of a league (MYSA-MN Youth Soccer Assoc.)
Soccer in our community is a unique program. We typically play combined boys and girls. Playing with an MYSA league limits some 6th graders player eligibility through their 6th grade year and in addition would raise all player fees to participate. The club plays many teams that are MYSA affiliated though out the season and we hire MYSA refs for almost all games. Our club follows MYSA rules for many aspects of our program.
How are practices scheduled?
Typically practices are on Mondays and Thursday so that players that are involved in other sports can balance soccer as well. Practices may be changed due to coach’s availability and registration signups for the season. Once games begin practices can vary.
When are games scheduled?
The Youth Coordinator for the club schedules all games with our partnered communities. Games are played Mon-Friday evenings and or Saturdays. Soccer does not schedule specific days every week for games. Scheduling with this sport does not allow that option.
How is season information communicated?
Coaches make the decision at the start of each season if they want to be responsible for weekly schedule updates or if they wish for the committee to handle this task. Coaches communicate with parents as needed during the season for any other issues with the team. Coaches contact information is given to parents at the start of each season.
Is there soccer after 6th grade?
LCWM partners with Loyola to offer a great soccer program for players 7th thru 12th grade. The club provides information to all incoming 7th graders to get started.
