Louisiana Competitive Soccer League
The Louisiana Competitive Soccer League ("LCSL") is a state-wide youth soccer league administered by Louisiana Soccer Association ("LSA"). All competitive teams in the state are encouraged to participate in the LCSL. The goal of the league is to provide a safe, fair and competitive environment in which all of our youth players can grow and develop in the game and learn the life lessons best taught through participation in sports out of it.
The LCSL has divisions (C1, C2...) in each age/gender group from U11 through U19. The structure of the LCSL divisions is consistent. Every C1 Division U15 and older will contain of 6 teams and every C1 Division U14 and younger will have 8 teams. Every C2 Division and below will have 8 teams in all age/gender groups where possible.
League Seedings. The seeding of league brackets will be determined entirely by league play during the preceding seasonal year.
Promotion/Relegation. The LCSL will see promotion of teams finishing at the top of their division and the relegation of teams at the bottom of their division. The Promotion/Relegation process allows league structure to be determined objectively by play on the field and gives teams the opportunity to play at a competitive level most conducive to their player development.
RPL Teams. Regional Premier League teams will now play in the LCSL as well as the regional league.
State Tournament Seeding. Seeding in all Louisiana State Tournaments will be dictated by LCSL standings at the end of each seasonal year.
The LCSL is designed to bring objectivity, consistency, fairness and parity to league structure and to insure placement of teams is determined by play on the field.
