Fees
The cost for the spring rec season is $95 for Pre-K & K or $120 for Grade 1 and up.
*EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT* Families who register prior to March 17th will receive $15 off per child.

Pre-K and K Players
Children will be split into mini groups with same age peers. Sessions will be led by parent coaches with Kickz UK trainers assisting. The sessions will be a mix of fun games and activities to build foundational skills. Most weeks will end with a short "scrimmage" giving everyone a chance to shoot and score! This age uses a Size 3 Soccer Ball.

Grade 1 and 2 Players
At this age players will be split into 4-6 teams (depending on player count) and will play 4-vs-4 games on Saturday mornings against each other in a rotating schedule. Teams will be led by parent coaches with an assigned Kickz UK trainer providing support. The games are fun and fast paced and begin to teach the players the 'rules' of soccer (out-of-bounds, throw-ins, penalty kicks, etc). There is also a weekly skills training session included, run by the team's Kickz UK trainer, held on a weeknight from 5-6:30 (typically Mondays and Thursdays but final schedule TBD). This age uses a Size 4 Soccer Ball.

Grades 3 through 8 Players
Rec players in grades 3 through 8 play in the SCYSL (Sussex County Youth Soccer League.) The league is coed and teams are grouped by age range:

U10 - 7v7 - 2008/2009 birth year
U12 - 9v9 - 2006/2007 birth year
U15 - 11v11 - 2003/2004/2005 birth year

The games are held on Saturdays at various times and locations throughout Sussex County. Our Home fields are CO Johnson (7v7 & 11v11) and Mohawk Ridge (9v9). During the week there is both a Kicks UK trainer and a coach practice at CO Johnson (typically Monday and Thursday, 6:30-8, but final schedule TBD.)

Attire
All Rec players should have shinguards. Shorts are not mandated under Grade 3 (some of the earlier dates can still be a little chilly). Sweatpants are OK. Cleats are not mandatory for the Pre-K/K children but they are recommended. Grades 1 and up should have cleats.

Most sporting goods stores (Dick's, Modell's, etc) will run specials through the start of the season where you can get a soccer ball, cleats and shinguards for a bundle price (usually under $25). See above for soccer ball size for your child.

Reversible Jerseys / T-Shirts
Depending on Child size and age, players will wear either a reversible jersey or LVSC Rec T-Shirt. If your child has one from a previous year, they can use the same one. If you need a new jersey/tee, they are available for a cost of $12. Sizes Youth S-M-L or Adult S-M-L.

Weather Cancellations
If inclement weather is forecast, or prior rain causes the fields to be closed, cancellation will be announced on the LVSC Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/LVSCSoccer) before 8am that morning. Families will also receive an e-mail notification.
