    • “Travel Program FAQ”
      You can find FAQ specific to the travel program here.
    • “How old does my child have to be to play soccer?”
      A child must be born in the year 2013 or 2014 for the Snoopy Program.  The Intramural Program is for children born in the years 2005-2012.  Players born in 2009 and later are eligible to be evaluated for the Travel Program.
    • “When is the registration period?”
      Registration for the Fall and Spring seasons usually begins in early April and runs thru the end of July.  Travel Players will register after they have been selected to a team.
    • “How can I register my child?”
      In order to register your child, please go to our website at www.levittownsoccerclub.org and click on the “Registration” tab at the top.  LSC only offers online registration with credit card as the only payment option.
    • “What paperwork do I need to submit to register my child to play soccer?”
      A completed registration online and payment along with a copy of your child’s birth certificate (if he or she is a first-time registrant).  A player will be registered and rostered to a team only if all the paperwork is complete, and the proper fee has been paid.
    • “How much are the registration fees?”
      Travel Player: $200
      Intramural Player: $175

    • “What happens if my child’s registration is received after the registration deadline?”
      Any registration received after the deadline will be put on a waiting list. Players will be added to a team roster if space permits, based on the date the registration form was received.
    • “When does the soccer season start?”
      The soccer year runs from September (usually the first weekend after Labor Day) to mid-June, and consists of a Fall and a Spring season.  The Spring season begins in April.  Each recreational soccer season typically consists of at least a nine-game schedule.
    • “What other equipment will my child need?”
      • – Soccer ball – Size 3 for Snoopy thru-U7, Size 4 for U8-U12, Size 5 for U13
      • – Shin guards, Soccer Cleats (mandatory) for all intramural players
      • – Soccer cleats are not permitted for the Snoopy Program
    • “When and where are the practices?”
      All practices are at the discretion of the head coach.  Times and location are also at the coach’s discretion.  Snoopy Players have practice and games at the same time on Saturday mornings
    • “Can I request that my child is on the same team as a sibling or friend for carpooling reasons?”
      We can possibly accommodate requests for carpooling with one other players.  This request must be indicated at the time of registration for both players.  Siblings will be kept together on request, as long as they belong in the same age and gender appropriate bracket.  Please note requests are not guaranteed.
    • “Can I request that my child has a specific coach?”
      We cannot guarantee that a player will be on a team or with the same coach as last year, unless you are the head coach for the team your child is assigned to.  Players may be assigned to the same team as the previous year, but this is not always possible due to variables in registration from year to year.  In a situation where a team is known to have been much stronger or weaker than other teams in the previous season, the Intramural Commissioner and/or Group Commissioner may reassign players to maintain approximately equal strength teams.  Being a head coach of a team is the only way to guarantee that your child gets the coach you want.
    • “My child did not like the coach from last season. What can I do?”
      Please indicate the coach’s name and your desire not to have him/her on the registration form and the request will be honored when possible.  It would be very helpful if you also included a note sent to the division commissioner or board stating your reasons for not wanting this coach.
    • “I have an evening conflict. Can I request a specific practice day and time?”
      Unfortunately no – practice day and time are at the coach’s discretion.  However, coaches do make the effort to schedule sessions in a way that accommodate as many players on the team as possible.
    • “I did not get my registration in on time. How does this affect any requests?”
      Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to honor any requests on late registrations.
    • “When and how will I find out what team my child is on?”
      The team coach will call you within a week prior to the first game of the season.
    • “Is participating in practices and games mandatory?”
      Soccer is a team sport and participating in practice fosters a team approach to the game, besides learning and trying new techniques. Practices and games should be attended unless you are ill or there is a legitimate conflict with a school, family or personal event.  Please inform your coach if you are unable to attend a practice or game.
    • “My question was not answered here. Who can I contact?”
      Registration questions should be directed to the club registrar, while the Program Directors can answer any questions pertaining to their specific program.  Please remember that these people are volunteers and are typically only available in the evenings.  Click HERE for a contact list of Board Members and Club Officials.  Please note that we are unable to address questions via social media.
