LYA RECREATIONAL SOCCER FALL 2024 PROGRAM SUMMARY:

LYA will be offering during the Fall of 2024 our recreational soccer program for ages U6 through U10.  The Program is recreational and emphasizes FUN, good sportsmanship, and player development.   Trainings and games are hosted on Uwchlan Township fields.  The program is intended to be player-centric with an emphasis on “guided” play not “directed” play.    Players are encouraged to be creative and learn how to make decisions on the field during the run of play.   All teams are coached by volunteer coaches.   LYA will provide training and support for coaches prior to the beginning of the season.
