Louisiana Competitive Soccer League
Field Availability Form
The Field Availability Form will be distributed to all clubs. Each club must indicate which weekends during the 2015-2016 seasonal year they would be willing to host LCSL games at their field complex. The form will ask
The number of fields available;
Specific time slots (e.g. 8:00 AM, 1:30 PM…) that the fields are available, if any;
Whether the club is willing to host games that do not involve their own teams (neutral site games); and
The identity of the Club’s Assignor.
Preliminary Division Brackets
LSA will distribute all 2015-2016 Preliminary Division Brackets to all clubs. These brackets will be compiled based upon each team’s performance in LCSL play during the 2014-2015 seasonal year. For purposes of compiling the Preliminary Division Brackets, newly formed teams will be placed in the lowest division in its age group. U11 teams will be placed in the Preliminary Division Brackets for the fall season based upon Club requests for placement.
Field Availability Form
Clubs will submit their Field Availability Form to LSA on or before July 20th.
Letter of Intent
LSA is requesting that each club complete and submit their Letter of Intent for each of their teams that intend to participate in the LCSL during the 2015-2016 seasonal year AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. It is our hope to accelerate the process of identifying all teams participating in the LCSL so we are able to finalize all LCSL Division Brackets and compile the LCSL Schedule in a more timely manner. The sooner all Letters of Intent are submitted, the sooner the LCSL Schedule will be published.
Competitive Team Rosters must be entered into the GotSoccer system so that the team’s composition can be confirmed for its appropriate placement in the LCSL. A team must return 50% plus 1 of its previous year roster to retain its ranking.
Remember, except for U19 teams, to participate in any Louisiana State Tournament, a team must participate in the LCSL and/or the Regional Premier League.
For U11 & U12 teams not formed by the July 27th deadline, there will a spring only league and that Letter of Intent will be due November 1st.
Divisional Placement Petition Forms
In the event a club feels a team or teams should be placed in a higher division than shown on the Preliminary Division Brackets, the club must submit a Divisional Placement Petition Form to LSA on or before July 27th. No club may petition to have a team play in a lower division than that shown on the Preliminary Division Brackets. All Divisional Placement Petitions will be considered by LSA in compiling the final LCSL Division Brackets.
Designated Home Field Form
If your club is unable to host LCSL games, this form must be submitted to LSA so as to identify the site at which your home games will be played.
Clubs will submit rosters in GotSoccer for all competitive teams participating in the LCSL.
Annual General Meeting
LSA will use the Annual General Meeting to collect any outstanding forms from clubs and to insure we have all of the documents necessary to construct the Final LCSL Division Brackets.
Final LCSL Division Brackets Released
Subject to the cooperation of all member clubs in submitting their Letters of Intent and other paperwork in a timely manner, LSA will release the Final Division Brackets. Again the success of accelerating the scheduling process for the LCSL rests in the hands of our members.
LCSL Club Transmittal Form
Each club must complete, sign and submit a Club Transmittal Form to LSA on or before August 10th. Payment of the applicable LCSL fee for ALL teams on a single check and the club’s Performance Bond in the amount of $250.00 drawn on a separate club check must be submitted with the LCSL Club Transmittal Form.
For Club Transmittal Form
The Assignor of each club must have taken and passed the Assignor Test on or before August 12th in order for the club to host LCSL games at its field complex.
