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.

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.
