Quality referees are pivotal to a soccer organization. Entry level classes are frequently being scheduled in the Southern Maryland area for all interested candidates. See the attached link from Maryland Referees.com for more information.
This summer, LPYSA is offering the "E Licensing Course", in conjunction with the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA). The course will take place the weekend of June 26-28th, In La Plata. Classroom sessions will occur from 6-9 pm on the 26th and 9-1 am on the 27-28th with outdoor sessions the second half of each day. The E course is a requirement to be a Rec Plus coach in our league, as well as a Travel Coach, but is a great instructional tool for all coaches. Please register through MSYSA. The price to participate is $85, and any LPYSA coach which completes the course will be reimbursed for their registration fee.
The mission of the La Plata Youth Soccer Association is to offer the tremendous benefits of soccer to the youth of Southern Maryland. Fun, physical conditioning, teambuilding, friends and competition are just some of the many benefits. Players aged 4 to 18 can enjoy our program.
An extensive in-house recreational league forms the core of our program, with over 700 children playing soccer in both the Spring and Fall seasons. LPYSA also offers Rec Plus and Select teams.
LPYSA encourages its coaches to obtain training through the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA). Many coaches have F, E or D licenses.
This organization cannot function without the support of its parents. If you would like to volunteer, or have other questions about LPYSA, please email Ryan Mudd.
