Lakeville Soccer’s Travel Program is designed to provide travel opportunities for all boys and girls from it's community. LSC strives to provide an environment where all players can meet their playing potential and compete with and against players of equal skill and athletic ability.
LSC fields teams in the MYSA Summer and Fall Leagues. LSC offers three levels of traveling, Small-sided Travel (U9 through U12), the Regular Travel (U13 through U19) and the Select Travel (U12 through U19).
All LSC traveling teams utilize a volunteer or paid coach. LSC requires all Select Travel teams have fee-based coaches. Any travel team could have a fee-based coach if no qualified volunteer coaches are available. Teams can also request a fee-based coach. Coach fees are prorated among all the members of the team.
Players are discouraged from participating in multiple non-school sporting activities during the soccer season because of the conflicts that results from practice and game requirements. Summer practices and games are generally on week nights, tournaments and some practices (coach/team decision) are on the weekends. Fall practices are during the week and games are on the weekend.
The spring/summer team practices begin in March at an indoor facility. Switching practice outside in April or as soon as the weather permits. The MYSA regular season begins the first Monday in May.
LSC offers individual skill development training for all ages starting in November.
U9 & U10 teams are formed in late October/early November after evaluations for skills and field play are held. Teams compete at Maroon (top team) or Gold levels in small-sided 6v6 games (the level of play is decided at or soon after team formations). Maximum roster size is 12 players. Also, teams will participate in MYSA's Spring/Summer and possibly Fall seasons, and are encouraged to play in at least 1-3 local tournaments. U8s are encouraged to tryout and such players may be placed with other U9s on a U9 team or as part of a team comprised entirely of U8 players, which will play up to U9(most likely at the Gold level).
To register for tryouts, you need to make the initial installment payment for the spring/summer season with LSC. Then your child will be able to attend tryouts.
U11 & U12 teams are formed in September and October by evaluations for the next year. U11 teams compete as a C2 (top level) or C3. U12 teams compete as a C1 (top level), C2 or C3. Teams participate in MYSA summer and fall leagues.
Regular Traveling comprises the age groups U13 through U19. Teams are formed based on evaluations held in early August, September and October. Teams compete at Classic 2 or 3, depending on the team's standings from the previous summer season's play. Fall league play is currently not offered; U13 and older players are encouraged to play for their school teams in the fall. All Regular Travel players are welcome to take advantage of Winter Training designed to increase their soccer skills.
Select Travel is a LSC designated program for age groups U12 through U19. Teams play at the premier and C1 level. Fee-based coaches are utilized and teams are formed via a tryout the first week in August. Year round training and extended tournament participation is required. Yearly team expenses are divided equally between all families regardless of participation in team practice sessions. The Club welcomes multi sport athletes and has specific guidelines concerning their soccer participation during the non-soccer season.
