The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Academy Events

The Academy Advisory Board ("AAB") will schedule Academy Play Dates regionally across the state during the course of the year. In addition, LSAP Academies will be invited to enter teams in the Bob Abbott Cup as a year-ending event. The cost of the Jamborees shall be kept to a minimum with the intent to cover costs to the host club only.
Below are the LSAP Events scheduled thus far for 2020-2021. The LSAP Clubs attending are shown with the Host Club listed first.

While adherence to US Soccer Player Development Initiatives (PDI) is paramount in all LSA programming and events, coaches and clubs are encouraged to be innovative as well. The PDI is the default for all activities.  Participating LSAP clubs can alter activities upon agreement.  Examples of such innovations are playing smaller sided games (4 v. 4), scrambling player pools, or playing with kick-ins.




"Many clubs and  State Associations have replaced the outcome-based approach with a process-based approach via an academy-based setup...The goal is to compete to do their best rather than compete to be the best."​
Sam Snow, former
US Youth Soccer and LSA Technical Director
