Once again, Louisiana Soccer Association will hold its Annual General Meeting at the Marriott Lakeway in Metarie. The AGM will begin Saturday, August 6th at 8:00 AM and run through Sunday, August 7th to the conclusion of the Youth Council Meeting. We encourage all parents, coaches and club officials to attend as there will be sessions, seminars and symposiums for everyone.
"Louisiana Soccer - Redefining Excellence"
Our keynote speaker is Skye Eddy Bruce. Skye is a national speaker for the Changing the Game Project and the founder of the Institute for Soccer Parenting. A former professional player, Skye was a collegiate and youth All-American goalkeeper and voted Defensive MVP of the NCAA Final Four in 1993. Skye has coached extensively in the youth and collegiate games and has worked for U.S. Soccer at National Training Centers and National Team Camps. An MBA graduate of the University of Richmond, Skye has earned her USSF “B” License, the National Goalkeeper License and is a Coach Educator for the NSCAA.
Parents interested in changing the soccer culture and bringing civility to the youth soccer environment are encouraged to attend as well as coaches and club officials.
There will also be technical sessions presented by Paul Ellis of Soccer Academy of Virginia, LSA’s Soccer Camp Partner. LSA will present informational sessions on developments in LSA programs including a session with Philip Cameron from GotSoccer related to the LSA registration process. Each member club must send at least one administrator/registrar to the GotSoccer session. We hope to avoid issues occasioned by mistakes made during the player registration process.
On Saturday evening, our friends at Third Coast Soccer are presenting an LSA Social Hour during which appetizers will be served along with a cash bar. During the social, LSA shall present the 2016 Annual Awards and induct our first member into the Louisiana Soccer Hall of Fame.
