Special note to Volunteer Coaches:
We thank you and recognize your crucial role in this return to play process. This may be the year you can coach for the first time. Without volunteer coaches, it will be impossible for us to form a program. We will be unable to make bigger teams than is recommended, it may cause us to limit registration, but we will respect your decisions.
LSC's Intown program is all about sportsmanship, making friends, getting some exercise and learning a bit about soccer along the way.
Responsibilities of Parents to keep children Safe and healthy during the season:
o Ensure that your child is healthy and check your child’s temperature before activities with others. No known exposure to a person with COVID-19 in 14 days.
o Ensure that your child arrives to practice with own equipment (ball, water bottle, shin guards, and goalie gloves – these can no longer be shared by players)
o Adhere to proper social distance requirements on the sidelines during practices and games.
o Ensure washing (e.g. Hands) takes place after every training.
o Ensure that clothes and equipment (clothes, cleats, ball, shin guards) are sanitized before and after every training.
o Notify the club immediately if your child becomes ill for any reason.
o Be sure that your child has necessary sanitizing products at every practice and game.
o 1st Grade will play in a festival-style 4v4 or 5v5 format to encourage more meaningful touches on the ball and a better understanding of soccer fundamentals at a young age. This mimics our Travel program. More details will be sent in the weeks to come. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with questions. We are currently planning for nine games weather and circumstances permitting.
o 2nd Grade will play a nine game season weather and circumstances permitting.
o 3rd Grade and older will play an eight-game season. Weather and circumstances permitting, we are planning for the teams to also participate in our season-ending Carpini Cup tournament. Historically, every team has played two games on Friday night/Saturday and our top finishers return on Sunday to compete for the championship. Depending on the situation, with safety as our main priority, the structure of the tournament may be altered.
This year we are allowing all players to make one reciprocal friend request to increase the comfort of coaching and playing during this unprecedented season. Please make only one as we will only be able to honor the first if you make a list. We are emphasizing fun first and competition second. Please take note that a coaching request equals a friend request!
·We automatically put siblings in the same age group together, unless you ask us not to do so.
No Jewelry Allowed! For safety reasons, no jewelry can be worn during practice or games. Taping over earrings is not permitted.
