LPYAA Soccer

LPYAA Soccer is a youth soccer program for children Kindergarten through 6th grade. It is intended to build basic soccer skills, competitive skills and have fun. Registration fee includes t-shirt for games. 
Our program is skills based, and consequently concentrate on the little things in soccer, such as individual moves, passing, shooting, and working with teammates. We plan practices so that scrimmage time is equal to skills practice time. Our goal is to instruct in such a manner that all players learn so they will be successful at their next level of play.
All practices are at the Horse Show Grounds by the ski jumps.
