WINTER INTRAMURAL LEAGUES
LMSC will again offer several winter indoor leagues for players born between 2010 and 2014. The leagues will run in Conshohocken. The
leagues will be geared for intramural players, though travel team players will also be able to sign up.
The league will only include games, no practices. Due to the program running
indoors, LMSC will have to limit the number of teams, and the number of participants.
WINTER INDOOR TRAINING
LMSC will again offer indoor soccer training programs for our younger players. These programs will run on Saturdays in Conshohocken.
This program will include 30 minutes of skills training, followed by 30 minutes of small sided games.

ALEX AND EVAN'S JOURNEY FROM U-10D TRAVEL TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
In 2011, Alex Kades and Evan Tracy were playing on the LMSC Force, our U-10D team. Their team lost in the Delco League Division 6 championship game.
Five years later, they were playing on the LMSC Sabertooth Rats, our U-15A team. The team won the state championship as well as the Region One championship so
the team advanced to the National championships. In 2019, the Rats again were state champions and advanced to the national championship. Alex was a two time all-state
player in high school and was recruited to play Division One soccer at the University of Pennsylvania. Tracy was a two-time first team all Central League selection,
both were captains of their high school team. If anyone wants to know if people on 'D' level travel teams ever move to higher levels of play, just ask Alex or Evan.
