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.
In August 2019, LSA scheduled 1,453 LCSL games in 46 divisions for 303 teams. Of those games, 981 were re-scheduled by teams before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. That equates to 70% of the games. Of those 981 games rescheduled, 68% were rescheduled due to coaching conflicts or the desire to participate in a tournament. That means that LCSL teams rescheduled 667 (46%) of the 1,453 games originally scheduled by LSA for reasons of which they were aware while the schedule was being hammered out. This process is neither efficient nor effective. It leads to a colossal waste of time, delays and unnecessary conflict between teams. To be both efficient and effective, teams must be the driving force behind the schedule, not LSA or even our clubs.
a. the tournament host must agree that the game should be the first game of the day for both teams on any day of the tournament.
b. the teams must pay the full tournament fee, however, they do not have to pay the referees for their league game as the tournament pays the referees.
c. both teams must certify to LSA that they consent to having the club tournament game count as their league game and that they have notified all players and parents that the club tournament game will count as their league game.
d. the club tournament must be a US Youth Soccer sanctioned tournament.
