Recreational Soccer Play for Ages U9 - U13+ (frmly Intertown)

UpdatedSunday September 13, 2020 byStephanie Brizard.

LERSC is pleased to announce that we have now joined Long Island Junior Soccer League's (LIJSL) InterLeague Program. Under the guidance of the league, the program is designed to keep the love of soccer going for those not yet ready Travel, or for those that just wish to play for the pure enjoyment of the game.

Games typically run on Sundays and are held throughout Western Nassau County, though there may be some crossover to the eastern areas of the county. Like our other programs, there is a fall and a spring season, and in a typical season, 8-10 games are played.

Teams are designated Boy and Girls and the age of the oldest player determines the age group of play. Age groups for the 2020-2021 soccer year are as follows:

  • U9/U10 (2012/2011)
  • U11/U12 (2010/2009)
  • U13+ (2008-2006)
  • *U15+ (2006-2003), should there be sufficient numbers among the area clubs, a HS age group could be created for competitive balance, in U13+ age groups.

Fall 2020/Spring 2021

All our teams for the Fall '20 season have reached their capacity. We are actively taking down names of players interested in playing the upcoming Spring '21 season. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact interim director Stephanie Brizard: sbrizard.lersc@gmail.com.  

Uniforms/Equipment

Players will wear the same numbered club uniforms as their Travel counterparts; the coaching staff has the final say in assigning numbers. All uniforms are purchased through our vendor, American Challenge: http://www.achallenge.com/pc-1272-292-travel-uniform-package.aspx.

Players are expected to have shin guards under their socks, as well as soccer cleats at all practices and games.  Additional equipment needed includes a regulation soccer ball (size 4 for U9-U12; size 5 for U13+), and water, which is to be brought to every practice and game.  It is a good idea to have a bag and ball pump as well. If a player requires glasses, these need to be sports glasses with a strap.

Practices

Practices are once or twice a week, depending on the coach.  One day a week, the club provides a trainer for the team’s practice.  If a second day with a trainer is requested by a coach, the trainer’s second day is paid for by a collection taken up by the team. Regular attendance at practice is required for playing in games.  The coach works with the trainer and the club in deciding the day, time, and location of practices.
