LSC's Intown program is all about sportsmanship, making friends, getting some exercise and learning a bit about soccer along the way.

 

Eligible Players

  • Any boy or girl who will be in 1st grade thru 12th grade this Fall can play. We welcome children of any skill level.  Livingston residents only.
  • If your child will play travel soccer (LSC or any other program) in the Fall, they are not eligible to play Intown soccer.

Format/Schedule

  • Format:
    • 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.  Please e-mail travel@lsclub.com with any questions, comments or concerns.
    • 2nd Grade will play a nine-game season.
