SEASONS - We have two primary soccer Seasons in the Spring and Fall each year. Each season has a duration of about 8-11 weeks depending upon the program. The full details for the programming in each season can be found in the  yearly program summaries:

        - Spring Recreational Soccer (mid February through early May)   Learn More... Spring2022

In addition to the different Seasons there are also different levels of Play for players during their soccer journey with LNYSA.  The Recreational Program is the first level of Play and supports different ages i.e Divisions.  This program starts with players from 3 years of age in the Under 5 (U5) Division, commonly known as the Mini-Kickers.  The Recreational Program then supports various age groups  such as U6, U7, U8, U10, U12, U14, U16 and lastly U19.  

The next step in the development pathway is called the Select Soccer program. It starts at U9 and goes through to U16. Learn More...

The next step in the development pathway is known as our Club Soccer Program branded as LUFC starting from U8 through to U19.  Within the Club Program there are additional levels of play (Tiers) Tier 4, Tier3, Tier2, Tier1 and Academy as illustrated in the picture below.  Learn More...

CLUB SOCCER LEVEL OF PLAY  - There are multiple levels of play in Club Soccer. teams play compete with other teams from their Tier - Our goal is to teach a consistent, unified soccer and leadership style, and to ensure players learn to have passion and camaraderie for their club, their teammates, and for the game.

LNYSA Birth Year and Season Matrix

When determining the age group for a season, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year. Also note that the format "U" followed by age really means that age and younger. For example, U8 should be read as 8 and younger. 


The Recreational program starts at U5 (mini-kickers) through U19.
Select Soccer teams start from U9 through U16. 
Our Club program starts at U8 through U19.
