Fall 2017 Season Roster Announcements:
Our goal is to email Fall 2017 roster announcements by June 30, 2017.
Announcements will be emailed to the email addresses that YOU provided and submitted on the GotSoccer online tryout registration form. At that point, we will provide instructions for accepting your roster position, completing the registration process and submitting payment, and uniform ordering instructions. Player fees will be finalized when rosters are announced and will include the team plan/program (league and tournaments).
Roster Acceptance and Payment for the Fall 2017 season is due by July 15, 2017.
Team Acceptance Fees:
We require team acceptance and fee payment in order to plan the season, which includes finalizing team rosters (do have enough players and what’s the team’s composition), confirming coaching assignments, and committing teams to Fall leagues and applying for tournaments; the deadlines for which start on July 31 – thus our need to require your player’s acceptance by July 15th.Without knowing which players are/are not committed to their team, it is almost impossible to finalize plans for the upcoming season. Accordingly, late fees will be imposed on all late acceptances and fee payments.
- A $25 late fee will be imposed on payments received after July 15, 2017
- A $50 late fee will be imposed on payments received after July 29, 2017
Spring 2018 Season Roster Announcements:
Roster announcements for spring only players on spring teams will be announced by August 18, 2017. At that time, we will provide more team information.
Spring roster acceptances and $200 deposit (submitted online) will be due in the Fall.
Final Spring fee balances will be due December 8, 2017.
2017-2018 Travel Team Fees:
Fees for the 2017-2018 year will be set when we announce rosters (our goal is to announce by June 30th). We need to know the composition of a given team before we can determine what league we will place it in, and what tournaments the team will attend, all of which impact the fee.
The team fees for 2017-2018 will be similar to those in the 2016-2017 year. Fall fees will remain lower than the spring season fees. The fall season is a shorter season and does not incur indoor preseason training costs, and teams generally participate in just one tournament. (The fall season runs about 10 weeks.) The spring fee is higher because it is a much longer season, includes indoor team preseason training and in most cases, participation in multiple tournaments (2-4). (The spring season runs about 16-18 weeks.) Optional winter training (November-February) is included at no additional cost to all committed LSC travel team players.
We have been asked about occasional "jumps" in fees when players move up an age group. Yes, there are discernible increases in team fees at key age brackets due to the associated jumps at those age levels in the state association fees, league fees, referee fees, and tournament fees. These jumps usually occur every two years at U9, U11, U13, U15 and U17, and in particular as teams move from 7v7 to 9v9 and 9v9 to 11v11.
UNIFORMS – Game Kits & Travel Team Wear:
2017-2018 Game Uniforms will be the same Admiral uniforms as from the 2016-2017 soccer year. Only NEW players will be required to order/purchase a new Admiral game uniform kit. (Returning players from a 2016-2017 travel team need only reorder a game kit and/or training kit if their old ones will be too small or they been misplaced or lost.)
Parents purchase Admiral uniforms and merchandise directly online (LSC does not).
Uniform ordering instructions and deadlines for doing so will be provided with team roster announcements. (You cannot order a game uniform before we officially announce rosters and have loaded new 2017-2018 team rosters (player names and jersey numbers) into the Admiral website.)
However, orders for non-game uniform apparel and merchandise, like Travel Team wear, can happen at any time directly through the Admiral/Lightning online store.
The Bobby Clark Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance for eligible travel team players. In order to be considered for financial assistance, please complete and submit the Bobby Clark Scholarship Application before the application deadline (as funds may no longer be available after the application deadline.) Please see the Scholarship Application page of our website for more information and application instructions.
The application deadline for the Fall 2017 season is July 7, 2017.
The application deadline for the Spring 2018 season is December 1, 2017.
Team Expectations and Player Commitment:
The fall season begins in late August and ends in early November. During the season, teams will train 3 times per week. League games will be played on Saturdays and/or Sundays. All teams will participate in a tournament over Columbus Day weekend.
Winter Training, inclusive for fall and/or spring travel team players, begins in mid-November and ends in mid-February. Sessions are offered roughly once per week. Participation (however regular or infrequent) in winter training is strongly encouraged for travel team players, but not required.
The spring season begins in early March and ends in late June, with the possibility of some teams playing through to July for playoffs. During the season, teams will train 3 times per week. League games will be played on Saturdays and/or Sundays.
All teams will participate in a tournament over Memorial Day weekend and most teams will participate in 1-2 additional tournaments throughout the spring season (which is decided by the Director of Coaching, Boys & Girls Director and the team's head coach).
Should the player be assigned to a team, both the player and his/her family commit to make the team a priority, making every effort to attend all training sessions, matches, tournaments and other team commitments.
