LSC STORM

The LSC Board of Directors support tournament teams at ages U10 and above under the LSC Storm name.  It is our belief that for players and parents looking for more competition above and beyond recreational soccer, tournaments provide a fun way to experience what competive soccer is all about while providing a low cost and minimal time commitment compared with a full season competitive option.

Teams and players U11/12 competing in tournaments who seek additional soccer beyond our recreational programs should contact leavenworthsoccerclub@gmail.com for more information about LSC Storm PSPL team non-rec opportunities.

About Tournaments

Tournaments are one of the most exiting parts of soccer – they provide team bonding, a fun competitive environment for players, a chance to meet new teams and an overall celebration of soccer!

There are several ways you can participate in tournaments. Below are links to local tournaments that are approved by either US Club Soccer or Washington Youth Soccer as safe tournaments.

Additionally, US Club runs State Cup Tournaments each year to provide teams at all levels of play the opportunity to continue to compete in post-league play. These tournaments advance winning teams on to Regional and National level competitions run by US Club Soccer.

We hope your team chooses to participate in these soccer experiences – good luck!

Flexility and Benefits

US Club Soccer teams and teams registered with other U.S. Soccer Federation affiliates may participate in any unrestricted US Club Soccer-sanctioned tournament.

The tournament may establish its own roster and competition rules, which need to be approved by US Club Soccer. In all tournaments its strongly encourage that players be allowed to “play up” in age group.

Loan rules to allow players to play on other teams from the same club and even other clubs for the purposes of tournament participation is allowed, but will be reviewed as part of the tournament’s proposed competition rules, and ultimately are for the tournament host to decide.

Obtaining Player Pass Cards grants liability and medical insurance coverage for the host organization as well as all US Club Soccer teams and participants. This simplifies attendance for teams, especially if a number of non-US Club Soccer teams are not able to obtain insurance from their state association.
