Fall Age Groups/ based on Birth Year: U5 2013, U6 2012, U7 2011, U8 2010, U9 2009, U10 2008, U11 2007, U12 2006, U13 2005, U14 2004, U15 2003, U16 2002, U17 2001, U18 2000, U19 1999.  Age groups will be combined as needed to field teams.  Teams will play co-ed if needed.

The cost for U5-U8 during the early registration period is $75.  It increases to $95 during provisional.  The fee no longer includes a player T-shirt.  All players will be responsible for ordering their own T-shirt prior to the start of the season.  Once a player is placed onto a roster a link will be provided by your age group coordinator to place an order by the deadline included with the link.  Shirts orders will be distributed by coaches when available.  

The cost for U9-U19 during the early registration period is $95.  It increases to $115 during provisional.  The registration fee for U9-U19 is higher than U5-U8 as they will incur league fees. The fee no longer includes a player T-shirt.  All players will be responsible for ordering their own uniform prior to the start of the season.  Once a player is placed onto a roster a link will be provided by your age group coordinator to place an order by the deadline included with the link.  Uniform orders will be distributed by coaches when available.

U5-U8 will have Saturday Games.  Times will vary.  U5 and U6 will not have weeknight practices.  U7 and U8 teams will practice 2 nights per week.  U7 and U8 game locations will vary between local clubs.  Expect the season to run September through November.  

U9-U14 teams will be entered into the Reading Berks Soccer League.  U15-U19 will be entered into either RBSL or LVYSL.  Depending on the competition available at each age group.  Both Reading Berks and LVYSL are travel leagues.  Our teams will be playing in the lowest levels or each.  Essentially Intramural.  There will be no tryouts.  There will be no higher level of commitment expected from anyone.  Teams will continue to practice 2 week nights per week at the coach’s discretion.  Travel to games may or may not increase slightly based on which other clubs enter.  ½ of the games will be home and ½ away.  Approx an 8 week season.  Expect the season to run late August through early November as travel leagues start earlier than Intramural.  U9-U19 will have Saturday and Sunday games determined by the league of play.  

 

If you are able to coach a team please contact the appropriate age group coordinator below.  Having the coaching staff established early during the registration process allows us to take as many players as possible.  Not having enough volunteer parents will force us to turn players away.

Welcome to the Spring Intramural Season Email 4/3

The Lower Mac Soccer Administration would like to welcome you all to the Spring 2017 Intramural Season.  Teams have been finalized and all rosters have been made active on the LMYA website.  The season will start 4/8 for U14-U19.  And 4/9 for U5-U12.
 

To view your player’s team assignment:

Log into you LMYA profile and select  My Family, and view my players team.   

  • If  your player has been placed on a team you will see the option to select their “roster”

  • If your player is not on a roster  for Spring you will see “not assigned”.

  • If you have registered but not yet paid they will show “not active”.  And it is too late for them to play this Spring.  

Understanding Team Assignments

Players are randomly assigned to teams based on their birth year.  Not grade in school. The scale is mandated by US Soccer.  

We will not  move players for particular practice night, team or coach request.
