Summer 2017 Information
Kinder Soccer ages 3-5 years
When: Mondays Or Wednesdays 6-7pm
Start: Mon May 8th End: Wed June 14th
Where: Lakeview park green space, west of the tennis courts
Cost: $35 (ball given to every player to keep, please bring to every session)
This session is an LCA initiative and will be instructor lead. It will offer one session per week in the Lakeview Park. Parent supervision/interaction is still required. The goal is to introduce the kids to the simple basics of soccer while enjoying a fun and interactive time. 4 and 5 year olds have the option of choosing this session or the U6 Timbits league. It’s up to the discretion of the parents. The kinder soccer is an introductory to soccer and there is no expectation to come to every session. The U6 Timbits league requires commitment to participate (as well as parent coaching) and half the session time is dedicated to actual game time.
Youth Soccer U6, U8 and U10
Youth Soccer is organized by the Saskatoon Youth Soccer (SYS) and is NON-COMPETITIVE and FUN. Emphasis is on learning and no standings are kept. Each team is run with parent volunteers. Parents are asked to take on a role on a team; coaching, bringing the equipment, communications, practices etc. By delegating different roles it lessens the burden on any one particular parent. It is still crucial to have at least one parent to coach the team and teams will not be registered with SYS until a coach has been identified.
There is a soccer tournament in early June at the Sasktel Sports Center fields that the U6-U10 teams can enter. Entrance fees will be paid for by the LCA if any teams wish to enter.

Fall 2016 information
Under 8/10 Development League vs Community League
U8 and U10 players have their choice of continuing to play in the community with the community league or to join the developmental league: " In addition to the U8/10 Community Association Soccer there is also a U8/10-Development League that is ran by Saskatoon Youth Soccer through its five Zones. It is an option for Community Association’s to offer a program for young soccer players who are looking to invest more time in learning the fundamentals of the game. This is done by offering a 2:1 practice to game ratio during the outdoor 8 game season. "
Important Information– The Canadian Soccer Association has begun the undertaking of requiring training for all coaches for all the age levels in soccer. These courses will be required for all volunteer coaches in Lakeview. If there is no volunteer coach teams cannot be created. So when registering please indicate if you are willing to coach or co-coach (co-coaches are great to have and only one coach would be required to take the course). Details about the training are below.
The following are the courses that are required for coaches:
1) Respect in Sport – this is an online anti-bullying, anti-harassment program that is actually a Provincial Government-led initiative through SaskSport and will be a requirement for all coaches in all sports in Saskatchewan. The program is available online and is free of charge. This is the same as hockey’s “Speak Out” training, the “Respect in School” program or NCCP’s new “Empower+”. The Respect in Sport program is structured over 5 online modules with their sub-modules which can be taken independently and at the coaches’ leisure (approx. 1 ½ hours). Once taken the course is good for a lifetime. More information about this course can be found at: http://www.saskcoach.ca/pdf/respectInSport.pdf
2) Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) Coaching Course – These courses focus on teaching coaches the appropriate approach to soccer within these stages and equips them with the skills to create a positive soccer experience. The costs will be covered by the LCA.
Active Start (U6) course – $50, ~4 hours
FUNdamentals (U8) course – $100, ~8 hours
Learn to Train (U10-U12) course – $165, ~16 hours
3) NCCP Making Ethical Decisions – Along with the CSA courses is the Ethical Decision module. This focuses on equipping coaches with the ability to identify the legal, ethical, and moral implications of difficult situations that present themselves in the world of team and individual sport. Once completed you are required to take a short online evaluation on your own time. Currently the cost is an additional $25 and will also be covered by the LCA.
How the soccer program works!
The number of participants and their information are gathered during registration time and based on those number teams are formed. The number of teams is submitted to the Saskatoon Youth Soccer (SYS) and they organize the league games. Late registrations complicate this process as more teams could have been entered if these participants were known. And in some cases a team may not even be formed because we think there are not enough participants.
Late registrations cause a lot of extra work for our volunteers so please be as mindful as possible with the deadline and remind others that you know might be interested. There is also no guarantee of a ball if you are a late registrant (pertains to mini and U6 kids). Thank you for your cooperation.
There is a charge of $10 for any request for a refund. Refunds may be requested prior to the first day of the start of the league (U6, U8 and U10). After that date no refunds will be given.
U8 teams have been allocated extra gym time for practices for the indoor season.
