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.
