Registration Policies

Specifying a team or a coach is not allowed except for the following reasons:


  1. Volunteering to be a Coach or Assistant Coach, as a child will always play on the team that their parent coaches. Please note that U4 and U5 divisions do not use Assistant Coaches. 
  2. If transportation arrangements with another player must be accommodated. 

Players are allowed to play up to the next division level (ie. age appropriate for U8 is allowed to play in U10, but not U12) if you are a dominant player and it would be in the best interest for yourself and the younger division. The registration system will only allow a child to be registered for their age-appropriate division. However, in the Additional Comments section of the registration form, please state the division your child would like to play up to.

Registration Surcharges

  • A surcharge of $7.50 will be automatically applied for non-residents of Lincoln Charter Township. The funds collected are allocated for maintenance and improvements to the soccer complex. 

  • The Lakeshore Youth Soccer League is made possible by its dedicated volunteers. Volunteerism is vital to provide the best possible experience for players and parents.

A $30 opt-out fee will automatically be assessed for parents who choose not to volunteer. 

General League Information

Food Allergies

Most divisions opt to have parents provide snacks following a game. Please be mindful of potential food allergies if you are supplying snacks for the team. It is encouraged that snack providers communicate with other parents to avoid any concerns regarding food allergies.


Players are not required to have their picture taken. Please note: there is no cost to have a player's picture take with the team —only individual pictures have a charge. Parents also have the option to have individual pictures taken at any time if their child is not available during your team's assigned timeslot for pictures.

Please note: Pictures are typically taken outside at the soccer complex. In the event of weather that could negatively impact pictures, the league will make every effort to find an alternative, indoor venue for pictures, or pictures may be rescheduled for another date. 

Uniform and Equipment Policy

  • Shinguards are required for all divisions U6 and up.
  • Soccer cleats are highly recommended for divisions U6 and up, but are not required.
  • Jewelry is not allowed in any instance unless worn for medical or religious purposes. In this instance, jewelry must be securely taped and be placed underneath the player's uniform. 
  • Damaged or lose jerseys may be replaced for $15. Please contact if your child requires a new jersey.

Weather Policy

Lightning and thunder in the immediate area will cause a stoppage of play for 30 minutes. Play cannot resume until 30 minutes after the last visible lightning strike. In the event of severe weather that may impact the entire day and jeopardize the safety of attendees to the fields, the league reserves the right to cancel all games and close the soccer complex. Parents and coaches will be notified via e-mail in the rare instance that this occurs.

Games are not generally canceled due to rain. However, games may be canceled and rescheduled at the discretion of the Coach. It is the Coach's responsibility to contact their roster and the other team to confirm the cancellation, and to reschedule the affected game.
