Will uniforms be required for practices and games?
Uniforms will be required for games. High School teams may choose to design their own uniform in school colors. At a minimum teams must have a reversible pinnie with light and dark socks. Uniforms are not required for practice, however, it is recommended teams wear pinnies in the event they want to scrimmage.
What is the format for the season?
The season starts the week of August 29th, with practices on Tuesday or Thursday night from 8-9:30pm on the turf at Evergreen Sportsplex. The first game of the season will be Saturday, September 9th and will be a scrimmage. Games will be from 2-6pm on the turf at Evergreen Sportsplex.
The first regular season game is Saturday September 16. We will have 6 regular season games. Games will be from 2-6pm on the turf at Evergreen Sportsplex. There is no game October 7th because of the holiday weekend. Instead, this week’s games will be played during practice on October 3rd and 5th.
The playoffs are on Saturday October 28th, with the 3rd place and Championship games being played Monday night, October 30th.
We will play an 11 v 11 format with either 1 hour games (2 – 25 minute halves with a 5 minute break) or 45 minute games (2 – 20 minute halves with a 5 minute break).
Will goalie gear be provided?
While LCL currently has a few sets of goalie gear, we are working towards purchasing more goalie gear. It is very expensive, around $1,000 per set (let us know if you or your company wants to sponsor a goalie!).
