InterLeague Registration Closed

Check Back in Late June for the Fall '21 Season

UpdatedThursday March 18, 2021 byStephanie Brizard.

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

Games are played 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, 8-9 games are played.

Teams are designated Boys 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.

 

Spring 2021 Season

Registration for the Spring season has ended. Registration for the Fall Season should begin in mid-to-late June. Please be sure to check back for updates.

U9/10 and U11/12 - All interested players should place their names on the wait list. Once we receive the requisite number of players, we will seek parent volunteers to coach the team, and then players will be asked to . You will only pay once registration is accepted. If you are interested, please sign up or you may contact the director with any questions, Stephanie Brizard: sbrizard.lersc@gmail.com.  

U13+ Team - The current team for the spring season is full; unfortunately, we do not have enough players to form a second team. Please check back in late June when we begin preparations for the Fall '21 season.

 

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. Do not order your jersey until you are assigned a number by the coach.

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.
