In-Town
The LSA Board facilitates the fall in-town program to help players develop individual and team skills, get exercise, and have fun. Score is not kept in the in-town league, and there are no play-off games. A round-robin style Jamboree is usually held at the end of the year (November) for the 2nd through 8th grades.

The in-town fee is $85 and includes a uniform and non-refundable fee of $5.  The in-town divisions are organized by grade. To be eligible for the Kindergarten program, your child must be eligible for the Longmeadow School system's Kindergarten program.  To be eligible for the PreK program, your child must be four years old by September 1st.

Registration:
Online registration opens in April.  A late fee of $25 applies after July 31st. There are no refunds after July 31st

NOTE: Registration for In-Town soccer for this fall ends on July 31st.  If you have not registered your child yet for In-Town soccer for this fall yet, please do so now because there will be fee associated with late registrations after July 31st.  

Parents can still register children until August 15th, but will need to pay a late fee.  The registration fee, including the late fee is $120.  If you would like to proceed with registration, please do so before the close of registration on August 15th. 

After August 15th, please send an email to LSAintownsoccer@gmail.com, and your child will be placed on a waiting list.  Please note that we will do what we can to place your child on a team, but we can not guarantee at this time that we will be able to accommodate your request.  Should we be able to accommodate your request, you will receive an email with further instruction about how and when you can register your child.

Players are notified of team assignments and schedules in August. Coaches pick up their rosters, uniforms, and an equipment bag at Greenwood Center between 5-7pm on Tuesday, August 31st and Thursday, September 1st.

The season begins in September, on the first weekend after the school year begins. There are no in-town games scheduled on Labor Day or Columbus Day weekends.

EQUIPMENT needed is listed with each grade below.  All players are responsible for their own cleats, shin guards, ball and water bottle.
