COVID-19 Update

LDSC COVID-19 Update 5/15/2020

As we find ourselves in these unprecedented times, we truly hope each of our LDSC families are safe and healthy.   We are excited to get back on the pitch, but safety is our priority.  We are actively working on exciting new programs to offer you once this crisis ends.

As many of you know, New York State has developed a 4 phased approach to the reopening of the state.   Youth Sports fall into Phase 4 of that plan.   In collaboration with New York State West Youth Soccer and guidance from US Soccer, we estimate we would not be able to get back to our regular programming until June 26 at the earliest.   This is very dependent on how this pandemic develops both locally and nationally.

As a result the following decisions have been made as of 5/15/2020:

  • LDSC Activity Pause Order - We will extend our current program pause order until June 26 for all activities.
  • Spring House 2020 - We will cancel our Spring House 2020 Session – LDSC is currently working with our online registration provider on providing full refunds to each of our registered house players.  Please allow us 3-4 weeks to process refunds.  Refunds will be credited back to the credit card you used at the time of registration.
  • Travel League 2020 - We will provide an update to the 2020 Travel Season as soon as possible as we continue to collaborate with BWNYJSL on next steps
  • End of Summer Classic Tournament – No currently planned changes to the original date in July.

Want to become a youth trainer?

The LDSC trainer program is looking for older soccer players who would be interested in working with younger players, gaining valuable job experience, and giving back to their community.  The trainers work with U4 and U6 players to help teach them basic soccer.  To qualify, your child must be 12 or older, have knowledge of the sport, enjoy working with young children, and be willing and able to work on some Saturday mornings and some Tuesday evenings.

To become a trainer, each youth trainer must complete the certification process on May 2nd from 9:00AM-12:00PM where they will learn about the program.  At this certification, there will be a brief parent meeting that one parent/guardian of each new trainer must attend.  There will then be a three hour certification for new trainers following this quick meeting.  After this certification session, new trainers will be scheduled to work on some Saturdays and some Tuesdays.

If your child would like to attend the certification session on May 2nd from 9:00AM-12:00PM, please fill out the google form by clicking here.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at ldsctrainers@gmail.com.
