Early bird registration is $199 and will increase to our late registration price of $224. This includes 2 fundraiser cards per player ($10 each) which families can keep or sell to recoup the cost. The cards provide discounts at local restaurants and businesses. Uniforms may also need to be purchased at an approximately cost of $50-$70.

The game schedule for the first half of the season will typically be posted about 5 days before the first game.  The schedule for the second half of the season will typically be posted about 5 days before the first game of the second half of the season.

No, there are no tryouts or evaluations. The recreational program is available to players of all skill levels at all age groups.

Coaches should contact players before the end of July.

The criteria to determine where your child will be placed include the following:

  1. Appropriate age division
  2. Requests made on the registration form
  3. Which team they played for the prior season.
  4. If none of these criteria apply, we try to group players with others from their school.

Teams will practice once or twice per week.  All practices will be at local Loomis/Penryn Fields.

One game per week.  All games will be on Saturdays.  About 1/2 of the games will be played in Loomis.  The remainder will be played in Rocklin, Roseville, Lincoln, or Granite Bay.  The U15 to U19 age groups typically travel a bit further for their away games, but all will be in the Sacramento region.

Age divisions are determined by birth year. This season, children born in 2019 will be the youngest eligible to play. Anyone born after 2019 will be unable to play, with no exceptions.

They can request to “play up” to one age group above the appropriate age group. However, that request will be met based on available space, and the approval of the the Coach and the Registrars. Players are not allowed to “play down” to the lower age group, except when there is a serious medical condition, and a doctor’s note to verify this need. If you would like your child to play outside of their age group, please indicate that in the Requests section on the registration form.

Recreational Soccer is open to everyone, regardless of experience or skill level and has a single Fall Season. Competitive soccer players must attend tryouts and typically play a Fall Season, and various other events throughout the rest of the year (Spring league, State Cup, tournaments, etc.).

The photos are used to make player cards, which the referees check before each game to verify that the player belongs on the team. The League requires current pictures of each player.

LYSC is a non-profit volunteer organization, not affiliated with any school districts or the town of Loomis. LYSC depends on the volunteer Board members, coaches and parents to keep things running smoothly.

Our #1 need is coaches!! Put simply, our recreational program cannot exist without the help of volunteer coaches. Previous soccer experience is not required and we will provide help to new coaches. Coaching is a fun and rewarding experience that you and your child will remember for years to come. If you are even considering coaching, please answer Yes to the question about being willing to coach.

Unfortunately, late fees cannot be waived. To avoid these fees, just remember to complete your registration before the cut off date.

If you have a financial need and would like to request a scholarship (full or partial) for your child’s registration, please reach out to our President at president@lysc.net and our Rec Registrar at rec_registrar@lysc.net.

We will certainly do all we can to accommodate all requests, but cannot guarantee any placement.

Any questions, please contact me at rec_registrar@lysc.net

Thank you!
