Common Questions

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
 
Communication/Volunteering:
 
Q:  What can I do to help as a parent?
A:  LSC is a volunteer-based club organization that needs the support and commitment from the parents of our players.  If you have interest, ask the coach what you can do at practice to help. Volunteering to be a Team Parent is extremely helpful and appreciated by our coaches. Or it may be as simple as setting up cones or moving a goal.  This will make the time your child spends at practice more productive.  More importantly, be involved in the monthly meetings and support the activities and tournaments the club is responsible for.  The more people involved, the more our children will learn and the more opportunities they will have to play soccer.


Q:  Who can attend monthly board meetings?
A:  LSC monthly board meetings are open to EVERYONE involved in our club (including board members, coaches, volunteers, community members, friends, parents, and even players).  Your input into LSC matters!  Please attend as many monthly meetings as you are able.  This is a forum for you to communicate (both positive and needs improvement items) to the coaches and the board. LSC Board Meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month in the Lebanon Community Center at 7pm.


Registration/website:

Q: Why do I have to register my child so early for spring or fall soccer?
A: There is a lot of behind-the-scenes work that has to take place in order for a soccer season for even one player to actually occur.  Determining how many teams are going to be established, having the appropriate number of fields and goals available, ordering uniforms, lining up referees, and determining schedules are some of the items that must happen.  In addition, we have district requirements that we must meet.  In order for these items to fall into place, we must allow appropriate time for meetings and scheduling.  LSC tries to be flexible where possible, but sometimes we cannot meet some of the demands based on rules and policies.


Q:  I registered my child, How do I manage the documents I need to load for my child?
A:  Visit the main page of www.lebanonsoccerclub.com and in the top right corner of the screen is a member login button. You can access your child's profile by signing into your account there. 


Q:  Does LSC have a Financial Aid Policy?
A:  Currently no. But we do offer a family discount for families registering with 3+ children.

1st Oldest Child – Full Price

2nd Oldest Child – Full Price

3rd Child or More – Free


Q:  Why do I have to fill out a medical release form?
A:  All children must have a medical release form on file with their coach in case of injury or illness.  It lets the coach know about your child’s special needs, insurance, and treatment facility preferences. All possible attempts will be made to contact you in the event of an injury, illness, or emergency. This information is there to ensure appropriate emergency care should that be needed.


Practice/Equipment:
 
Q:  How do I know if I still have a game/practice/training when there is bad weather outside?
A:  Field closings will be emailed out via your child's coach or the board of directors.  Please check with your coach before heading to any games/practices/training sessions if in doubt.  While the safety of our players is our main concern, unless the fields are deemed unplayable or lightning/thunder is in the area, all practices and games should be played. Games and practices should be held unless the fields are closed or the weather is unsafe.


Q:  What equipment should my child have to participate in soccer?
A:  All players should have the appropriate sized ball and shin guards.  Shin guards are required for both practice and games; no child will be allowed to play without them.  Also, all players should have their own drinking water/hydrating beverage as some fields have no facilities.


Q:  What size soccer ball does my child need?
A:  Soccer ball sizes depends upon the age of child.

Size 3: U6 & U8

Size 4: U10 & U12 

Size 5: U15
