Announcing U7 (2010) & U8 (2009) Advanced Soccer Program Evaluations

Hello Soccer Parents:

This Fall we will be continuing our Advanced u7 & u8 program.  This program’s goals are twofold.  First and foremost it allows for kids to play against similar ability players and will eliminate kids dominating a game or kids not getting many touches on the ball during some of these soccer games.  Secondly it allows for players to receive more ability appropriate training to best meet the needs of your child.  

Due to the seriousness and the structure of this program it will again remain invite only, following player evaluations. Similar to Travel Soccer.  Only  a small number of boys and girls (approximately 24 boys and 24 girls) will be invited to participate.  The Advanced Program is a full year commitment.  Spring 2016 evaluations will be for the Fall 2016 Spring 2017 soccer year.  

Areas of Focus

  • Strong focus on intermediate to advanced foot skills for this age

  • Begin to build “soccer vision”.

  • Practices will consist of a focus on footskills, small sided games designed to enhance the skills, and then small sided games all with a high degree of coach involvement and participation

  • FUN – we want kids to love playing soccer.  We will create a fun learning environment that leverages dynamic games to keep kids engaged and learning

Next Steps

  • We will have 2 evaluation days for the Advanced Program – Tuesday May 10th and Tuesday May 17th   both starting @ 6:00pm at Creamery Fields.  

  • You will be notified via email within 2 weeks of the final evaluation if player has been invited.

  • There is a $10 per player fee.  Registration link is also available on the LMYA website Intramural or Travel Soccer news pages.

Welcome to the Spring Intramural Season Email 3/24

The Lower Mac Soccer Administration would like to welcome you all to the Spring 2016 Intramural Season.  Teams have been finalized and all rosters have been made active on the LMYA website.  The season will start April 9th for U14 teams and April 10th for U5-U12 teams.  Teams may begin practices the week of  March 28th.  
 

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.

Several seasons ago Lower Mac Soccer moved away from head vs assistant coaches.  All teams need to have a min of (2) Co-Coaches throughout the season.  If there are not 2 coaches on your son’s or daughter’s roster contact soccer@lmya.org to volunteer.

 

Understanding the changes taking place within US Youth Soccer
