To accept a spot on a Lionville Travel Soccer team for 2018/19, parents of players will be required to pay the LYA registration fee through our online registration system in Blue Sombrero. Upon paying this fee you can choose to set up an auto installment payment option to allow you to schedule the remaining payments in installments over the course of the year.  The team fees vary by team and by age group depending on the length of season and the type of commitment of each team.   Please contact Ben McCarthy for information about a specific age group.


Lionville Soccer Club will have brand new customized Blue/Volt Nike home and away kits for the 2018/19 season. Mandatory uniform items typically cost around $150 with the option to purchase extra items if required.
