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.
