LAKE CRYSTAL YOUTH SOCCER (Grades 4-6)We are still planning to have the soccer games today (Saturday, Oct. 7).However, due to standing water on the U10 field and in the parking lot - the U10 game will be held on the U12 field by the pond.Please make sure your child dresses in layers and wears cleats. Tennis shoes are OK, but they might slip more often on the wet grass. Also - the official will cancel the game if there is heavy rain/downpour or thunder/lightning. Please be respectful to the decision.

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 Community Education office 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.
How can parents volunteer?
Anyone interested in helping can contact the Community Education office at 726-2673 for all the details! Our program cannot exist without volunteers!
