What Clothing and Equipment does my child need to play soccer?

GRASSROOTS

Participants in Mini&Me, U5 and U7 are given a jersey, shorts and socks by Leduc Soccer and are theirs to keep.

SHIN PADS - Players without shin pads will NOT be allowed to participate in practices or games. Shin pads are to be worn under the socks.

A good set of runners is recommended for each participant. Outdoor cleats can be used during the outdoor season. Outdoor cleats are NOT allowed on the surfaces at the LRC.

 

U9 - U19

Each player is issued with a home and away jersey for the duration of the season. A jersey deposit of $75 is needed prior to the player receiving their jerseys. A posted dated cheque made out for the end of the season (July 15 for Outdoor or March 15 for Indoor) to Leduc Soccer Association must be handed into the Team Official. Once the jerseys have been collected at the end of the season and are still in a wearable condition the deposit cheque will be destroyed. Should the jersey be returned in an unwearable condition due to rips, torn or unacceptable stains, the jersey deposit cheque will be deposited. Shorts and socks are provided by Leduc Soccer to all participants.

SHIN PADS - Players without shin pads will NOT be allowed to participate in practices or games. Shin pads are to be worn under the socks.

CLEATS - Cleats are recommended for all U9-U19 participants for the Outdoor season. Indoor soccer shoes are recommended for the Indoor season. Please note that outdoor cleats are NOT allowed on the surface at the LRC or in some venues where games are played. If in doubt, please discuss with your coach or appropriate LSA Director.

 

Wearing of jewellery (necklaces, earrings, bracelets, etc) is NOT allowed when practicing or playing games. As per FIFA, Law 4 clearly states "All items of jewellery (necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, leather bands, etc) are forbidden and must be removed. Using tape to cover jewellery is not permitted". Medical-Alert jewellery or clothing required by a player's religion may be worn only if the coach or referee deems it safe.

 

How do I cancel my Registration?

Please contact our Registrar to start the process of your withdrawal and refund.  All refunds are subject to the LSA Refund Policy.

 

When will I know the nights of play and schedule?

Leduc Soccer does its best to ensure consistency in the program delivery and does its best to ensure the same night of play are used each season per age group.  The following factors affect scheduling:

  • Number of registrations
  • League Schedule as defined by the various leagues our teams participate in
  • Number of hours available for facility rental (Indoor season)
  • Tiering of teams

Email communication will be sent out prior to the start (roughly two weeks) of the season with a schedule. 

 

When will I hear from my coach?

As soon as registration has closed, the program directors will work to arrange teams and coaches.  As soon as this is done, you will receive communication from your program director or coach.  If you need to discuss or are concerned that you have maybe missed some communication, please email the Program Director.  U9-U19 teams will also use TeamSnap to communicate and post team schedules.
