U12, U14 & U16 divisions will be evaluated Monday, August 14th. U10 evaluations will be Tuesday, August 15th. Evaluations will all take place at Field Day Park. There are no evaluations for U8 & below.
**If your player desires to play up an age group you must register first for your assigned birth year and then email us that you wish to play up. Playing down is not allowed in U10 & up, and is at the commissioner's discretion for younger leagues**
Special Requests: Although we strive to accommodate requests, we cannot guarantee this. IF you have any days you cannot practice, please put this in your special requests. (U10 & up teams are determined via draft, therefore friend requests are not guaranteed. This helps create balanced teams.)
***U8 and U6 Friday Showcase on October 6th, 2023. We are anticipating U8 and U6 games to be played on the last Friday night of school before Fall Break. Games will be played under the lights at Field Day Park at either 6:00 or 7:00. We understand this is the start of Fall Break, however we are short on weekends due to the added school break this year. Please plan your Fall Break plans with this date in mind***
YMCA Discounts: We were not offering YMCA membership discounts this season. Most games and practices have moved from the Y facility.
Volunteers: We are a fully volunteer run league. Please consider sharing your time and volunteering this season. We always have a need for coaches, no experience necessary! We provide a coaches clinic, training materials and equipment! Follow the volunteer link on your account home page to sign up. If you have any questions, please let us know!
We are proud to announce our partnership with Clover Elite FC! This is a great partnership with the same common goal, to keep our kids local and to prepare to make the school teams even better! We will work together to improve our children's soccer! It's not about building the best team, it's about building better players for all those that participate! Look for more info later this season about our LW Elite challenge teams for U10 and U9!!
We have slightly raised prices for registration this season in our U10 and up programs. This was necessary to keep up with rising field costs and referee fees. We strive to keep prices affordable and unfortunately needed to make this change.
Potential Friday night games
We are exploring the potential to play more games on Friday evenings. When registering please select if you are able to play Friday night games. Games would be typically at 6:00 or 7:00. All U8 and U6 games on 10/6/23 will be at Field Day Park.

What if I cannot make evaluations:
While it is very important to be at evaluations, we understand that things may come up that prevent attendance. Players will not be eligible to be drafted by a coach if they did not attend evaluations, but players will still be assigned to a team. Evaluations are only for age groups U10+.
Please email [email protected] if you are registering 5 or more family members. Please note, that we have updated our cancellation policy across all of LWAA. If you cancel prior to registration ending (02/10/2023), we will refund your registration fee minus a $25 admin fee per child. If you cancel after registration ends you will receive a $25 refund per child.
