Fall Season (U13-U14 ONLY)

MSHSL rules prohibit players from competing in high school soccer and traveling soccer during the same time-period. However, Middle School students are eligible to play club soccer in the Fall. This means U13 and U14 players as well as 8th graders (only those born between August 1-December 31) that are technically U15 can play in Fall.

The Fall Travel Season is a short season, which takes place from mid-August thru mid-October. Teams will practice 2-3 times per week. Teams will participate in the TCSL Fall League, which will consist of 6-8 games against other teams in the metro area. Teams may also choose to participate in one local weekend tournament.

Every effort will be made to include all interested U13, U14, and U15 8th grade players on a team which will compete during the Fall Season. Please understand that this may or may not be the same roster as the Summer season since some players choose to participate in other activities during the Fall season and not participate in Traveling Soccer.

 Winter Season

The Winter Season (January-March) consists of teams training, possible winter league, tournaments and/or friendly matches.

U13-U19 Competitive Gold & Black teams will participate in twice a week training sessions from January through April. U13+ Competitive Red & White teams will train once a week from January through April. Teams may also choose to train more often throughout the winter based upon the needs and desire of the team. This will be an additional cost to the team.

Summer Season

The main traveling season takes place during the Spring/Summer months (April-July). Teams will begin training outdoors as soon as the weather and field conditions are appropriate. Outdoor training sessions (2x per week) take place at various fields around Lakeville.

Teams will participate in the TCSL league which will typically consist of 8-10 league games. Teams will compete against other teams in the metro area.

Teams will participate in one weekend tournament per month, which may include an out of state tournament. Tournaments are an additional cost to the team.  

U13+ Competitive Coaches

Competitive level teams will initially have volunteer coaches.  Volunteer coaches at this level will be required to attend various coaching education events throughout the year.  The goal of this education is to ensure our coaches are up to date with LSC's coaching standards and developmental methods.  Teams with a volunteer coach have the option to go with a paid coach that may have more experience.

Our Age Group Technical Directors will help guide and develop all coaches within the travel program.  If the entire team would like to find a paid coach vs volunteer, they must contact their assigned Technical Director to begin the process.  Paid coach will be an additional expense ranging from $100-400 per family, which covers the entire year.

A paid coach may not be readily available for assigning to a team.  While the club continues their search for a qualified paid coach, a parent volunteer will be required to step in until one is found.

Volunteer Bond

Each family is required to submit a $250 check at the beginning of the Summer Season (February).  If you do not plan to participate/volunteer during the course of the summer season, you may submit a buy-out check for $200 which will be cashed. Once a volunteer role has been completed, the check will be voided. 

One Head Coach, one Assistant Coach and one Team Manager (per team); and LSC Board Members are exempt.
