One of the cornerstones of player development at all levels of youth soccer is tournament play. To promote player development and to help support our member clubs, LSA will help organize their tournaments any way we can. To operate a sanctioned youth soccer tournament, US Youth Soccer and LSA policies and procedures must be followed.
HOW TO BECOME A TOURNAMENT HOST IN LOUISIANA
To host a youth soccer tournament in Louisiana, a member club must submit the following documents to LSA along with the appropriate Tournament Application Fee.. If a member club wants to host more than one tournament, the documentation must be completed for each tournament.
NEW FOR 2019-2020 CLUB TOURNAMENTS
To help defray the cost of administering Club Tournaments in Louisiana, LSA has re-instituted an Application Fee. Each Application to Host a Club Tournament (wheter a restricted or an unrestricted tournament) must be accompanied by a check in the amount of $150.00. If a Club is applying for more than one tournament, the Application Fees for all tournaments may be included in a single check. If a tournament is divided into 2 separate weekends (e.g. Boys and Girls Tournaments) each shall be considered a separate tournament.
All of these forms must be completed and submitted to LSA on or before 10 days before the Mid-Year Meeting each January. Deadline December 27, 2018.
The forms can either be submitted
- by email to firstname.lastname@example.org,
- by fax at 225-766-0623, or
- by mail to LSA, 475 Gardere Lane, Baton Rouge, LA 70820
The Club Tournament Schedule will be announced at the LSA Mid-Year Meeting in January. Clubs that fail to submit the required documentation prior to the deadline will still be able to request approval of a Tournament date. However, priority for dates is given to those who submit their applications on time.
The parameters of tournaments can change and LSA will permit Tournament Hosts to amend their Application to Host as the need may arise.
