Asking for Practice Space

Each year LNYSA sets up teams for Seasonal practices starting in mid-August for the fall Season. The process is as follows:

– LNYSA request field space from the City of Laguna Niguel
– We Add the permitted to space to our field management tool i.e green areas below
LNYSA Permiited Field Space

– Coaches will receive an email asking for their Practice preferences – the purpose of the request is to note your preferences for your practice and your priorities. IT IS important to tell LNSYA what is MOST important to you (see below)

– Once coaches have logged into the coach portal and recorded their responses we start the process of matching requests to field slots – REMEMBER the “green areas” on the field diagram above show permitted space. If it’s not GREEN it’s not an OPTION.

– The last step is publishing the practice plan at lnysa.org under the practice tab FOR YOU to see. It takes 1-2 weeks to produce a plan for the 175+ teams so please be patient.

THINGS TO REMEMBER:

– Try to practice with a team in the same age group so you can arrange scrimmages during the week as the GAME is the best teacher.
– Younger teams need to start from 4PM & be on grass (unlit fields) – Parents of younger kids WILL not want to be on a field late during the school semester
– Once we have all teams on fields, coaches for Younger teams can make a request to fieldbookings@lnysa.org to move to OPEN slots if they see another field/time that they would prefer.
