Season Fees:

Take advantage of our early registration discounts and submit the registration and payment prior to the deadlines listed below.  

 

We have different prices for the U12/U14/U19 age groups as the league fees are much higher at the older levels.

REGISTRATION & PAYMENT PROCESSING OPTIONS:


LYS is required to submit to NVYSL the number of teams we expect to have for the upcoming season. This information is usually due some time around the early registration date. Because of this, we encourage everyone to register early and offer discounted registration fees for doing so. This will ensure that we reserve the proper amount of teams for any given age group or face monetary penalties. ANY registration received after Late Registration date is subject to space availability.
 
We are also required by Mass. Youth Soccer (MYS) to submit a list of all members participating in the upcoming season. Because of this, full payment for the current season is expected immediately upon registering.  Any registration that goes unpaid will be automatically deleted, and that player will not be considered for a team until registration is resubmitted and full payment is made.

 
As part of our streamlining of process we are asking that ALL registrations and payments be completed online. With the addition of our eCheck feature, you now have the option of paying online via Checking/Savings Account or credit card.
 
You can get started by scrolling to the bottom of this page and selecting the “Begin Registration” button for either the In-Town or Travel programs.
 
NOTE: If your child is listed as “Ineligible”, select the ineligible button to see the reason for it and make necessary changes. 
 
*Payment is required immediately upon registering.  Any registration that goes unpaid for more that 24 hours will be automatically deleted and that child will need to be re-registered in order to play.

**Players will not be placed on a team if registration is incomplete. All forms and fees will be returned.

For questions, comments, or concerns pertaining to the registration process, please contact our league registrar Ali Forsberg at registrar@leominsteryouthsoccer.org
 

A birth certificate is required for all new registrations for the Leominster Youth Soccer program. These can be uploaded during the registration process (preferred method), e-mailed to the league registrar at   or mailed to the following address:

quarantine period. Other teams who were not in contact with the Blue team or Red team will not have any suspension in activities.

reason.

16. Prior Registration Rollovers – If you rolled over your Player’s registration fee from the Spring 2020 season the registration fee will not be applied to this abbreviated session. The Rollover will be reserved for our next regular season.

17. Guidelines – LYS was required to submit guidelines to the City of Leominster concerning our plan to operate this session. If you would like to review the guidelines submitted please visit the LYS website at www.LeominsterYouthSoccer.org

18. Patience – We ask for your patience as we navigate the return to soccer this summer.

Update on spring soccer

 

Hi LYS Families,

 

We wanted to give you an update on the spring soccer season.  We plan to have a spring soccer season.  Registration is not open yet as we are still waiting for details from the Nashoba Valley league (grades 3-8) to determine if we can have a travel season or if we will have an intown-only season like we did in the fall.   

 

The Pre-K through Grade 2 age group will still have the intown-only season as we have had in the past.

We hopefully can open registration at the end of February/early March and we will be in touch soon.

Coaches needed:

We will be needing coaches and assistant coaches (especially at the Pre-K to Grade 2 age group).  No experience is necessary to coach.   We will provide practice plans. If you are considering coaching you can get started on the CORI and certification process:

https://www.mayouthsoccer.org/adult-registration-process/     If you have questions about the certification process please email cori@leominsteryouthsoccer.org


Volunteers needed:

We are happy to announce that was elected President at our recent Annual General Meeting.  Hugo has coached multiple LYS teams and was previously the Field Maintenance and Equipment Director for LYS.  

The current LYS board consists of 15 very dedicated volunteers who have strived to control the cost of registration, uniforms, and other fees, while budgeting for league fees and referees, maintaining a cost -effective program, updating coaches on rules and regulations, representing LYS at regional meetings, and managing programs, scheduling and fields.  However we are in dire need of new faces and fresh blood to ensure continued, seamless provision of service to the City of Leominster and the soccer families who benefit from this program.

Therefore, we are reaching out to every parent, grandparent, guardian and any soccer enthusiast interested in volunteering for this amazing organization and asking them to consider volunteering. Many of these roles require just a few hours a month, each season (Spring & Fall), and attendance at the once-monthly board meetings (currently all meetings are conducted via Zoom). Flexibility is one of our greatest assets, and meetings can be adjusted to accommodate the majority’s needs.

Individuals willing to volunteer must pass a CORI check.

We want to ensure that all kids can continue to enjoy the LYS programs. Please email us at info@leominsteryouthsoccer.org to contact us about volunteering for any role or with any questions. We can provide job descriptions and address any of your concerns.  

Current open Board positions:

Registrar - Conducts all registrations, submits team rosters to the league and insurance. Can be done on off hours.

Referee Director - Schedule referees for games; provides training for referees

Field Maintenance Director - Determines field playability, coordinates the work to get the fields set up for the season. Most work can be done on off hours.

Sponsorship Director - Solicits, collects and reviews all sponsorship and fundraising opportunities. Can be done on off hours.

Please consider joining the LYS Board!!!

Esperamos poder abrir as inscrições no final de fevereiro / início de março e entraremos em contato em breve.
