LCSL Important Dates

Print Email
 
As a result of the implementation of the US Soccer Player Development Initiatives, beginning in the fall of 2016, LCSL age groups will be defined by the Birth Year of players rather than their school year. We anticipate this will create a certain degree of turmoil for our member clubs in reformulating their LCSL teams. In an attempt to ease this turmoil, LSA has developed a new timeline of Important Dates for formulating and bracketing teams for the 2016-17 LCSL seasonal year. This new timeline has been reviewed, discussed and amended by the Soccer Culture Advisory Council, the LCSL Competitive Committee and the entire membership at the Midyear Meeting in January. 
 
 
April 9-10       Last Weekend of LCSL Play
 
April 16-17      LCSL Make-up Weekend.  The LCSL Make-up Weekend is used only to reschedule matches that are cancelled due to inclement weather.
 
April 11-27    Promotion/Relegation Challenge Matches.  All Promotion/ Relegation Challenge Matches will be self-scheduled between the teams involved. These matches can be played as soon as the participating teams have been determined based on LCSL results.
 
April 30      LCSL Season End Brackets Released.  The Season End Brackets are the standings at the end of the seasonal year as they may be affected by the results of the Promotion/Relegation matches.
