U7-U8 Division

The Under 7 and Under 8 league plays 4v4 and will have a certified referee who will also focus on education on the rules of the game as they make calls for out of bounds and fouls, etc.  League includes 8 games. Games for this age group will start Saturday March 23, 2024.

 

 U4-U6 Division

The Under 4 through Under 6 program plays 4v4 with a "New Ball" system.  In this system the game is controlled by the on-field coaches and they have the ability to introduce a new ball into the game at any point the ball in play goes out of the field.  This is designed to keep the players engaged in the game and constantly moving.  It also allows the coaches to get a child that may be a bit withdrawn involved in the activity. This league includes 6 games which begin March 31, 2024.

All players should wear appropriately sized shin guards with socks worn on the outside covering the whole shin guard.  Players are allowed to wear soccer cleats or tennis shoes to participate. 

In the event of inclement weather for the U4-U6 division, games may be moved indoors if space allows.  Any changes to the schedules or cancelations will be posted on the home page.

No player cards or MYSA rosters are needed for the U4-U8 League program .

League Details:

1. League Fees:  All team league fees listed above must be paid in full prior to your first game.  Teams will not be scheduled for play if the deposit of $100  is not paid by the 2/11 deadline. MYSA has instituted a new rule that only competitive teams can have player cards. LCS requires player cards for our Outdoor League from U9 to the High School divisions. Therefore, all teams U9 and above will need to present a USYS or US Club player card, coach card and official roster to the referee at each league game. Roster size limits and age restrictions will be enforced. 

2. Scheduling Requests:  A mandatory scheduling meeting will be held on Sunday February 25  to schedule all league games. If a representative from your team is not present, your schedule will be completed without you and no changes will be made after that date.  League games can begin on Saturday March 16  and are tentatively scheduled to conclude May 19. 

3. Reschedules: Once the Scheduling Meeting is completed and games are published, there will be a $50 charge to change a game date. New game dates must be agreed upon by both teams and then emailed to katie@lakecountrysoccer.

4. Scholarship Information:  Scholarships are available to those children who sign up as individuals who receive free or reduced school lunch but does not apply to any player playing or rostered on a team. To apply for a scholarship, please email a copy of your child's Free or Reduced Lunch letter from school to katie@lakecountrysoccer.org.

5. Practices: Please contact Alf Bilbao at alfb@lakecountrysoccer.org or call 417.862.3211 to schedule practices at any of the Lake Country fields/complexes.  

6. Pass Back Program:  LCS currently collects soccer cleats which we in turn pass on to those players who are under financial constraints. Please contact the LCS Office for assistance with this program.

Weather Policy

Severe weather can produce all types of scenarios ranging from extreme heat and high winds to heavy rain, lightning, thunder and/or tornados. If severe weather approaches the playing area, the safety of the players and fans is the number one priority of LCS.  Some weather conditions may require that the game be suspended while shelter is sought. In the event a game or practice is suspended; all participants MUST clear the field immediately and move into their cars or other permanent shelter. Please wait there until word is given to return to the fields or that a decision is made to cancel the game.
