Lightning Advantage is a non-travel program designed for the beginning player 6 to 10 years old. Lightning Advantage develops technical skills for the aspiring competitive player at the important developmental ages, and begins to apply those skills in various small-sided games and scrimmages in a fun and creative environment. There are no try-outs/cuts for Lightning Advantage. We offer this program during the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Enrollment is limited, so sign up early!
What to Wear – All players should wear their Advantage training kit, shin guards and cleats to each session. Returning Advantage participants should wear their previous Advantage training kit, provided that it still fits. New participants will receive their kit at check-in on the first day of the Advantage Program.
What to Bring–All players should bring a labeled water bottle to each session. LSC will provide a ball at training.
Advantage Training Kit* – Each kit includes a training jersey, a pair of shorts, and a pair of soccer socks. LSC pre-orders Advantage training kits from our supplier, so that you do not have to order them online. Lightning Spirit Wear items (LSC sweat pants, training jackets, hats, etc.) can be ordered online from the Lightning Store.
*Advantage Training Kit Fee Explained – The kit fee is due only if a player is new to the Advantage Program or if his/her training kit no longer fits. Players are expected to maintain their training kits in good condition to last through as many seasons as possible. Replacement kit items are available from the LSC office.
Fall Advantage Particulars-The fall advantage program will run Tuesdays and Thursdays from Sept. 10-Oct. 10. Practice time will be 4:0pm-5:45pm. The program will be held at Huntley Meadows Park in Norwich, VT.
