The Lake Stevens Soccer Club (LSSC) Recreational (“Rec”) soccer program is for players aged U-13 to U-19.  The Recreational program is often a youth’s introduction to the full 11-v-11 game of soccer.  This is where the journey begins for many player’s careers, whether that be to higher levels of competition, for fitness, for fun, or just to hang out with friends in a safe, competitive environment.  There’s room for all.

While there are a few age appropriate modifications to the rules with regards to ball size, length of halves and substitutions, the majority of the game is played according to FIFA’s Laws of the Game.  This includes a full complement of players (11 per side) and field sizes.  Assistant referees are used for “out of bounds” calls.  Score is officially kept and reported.  The win/loss information is used to seed divisions to ensure competitive play from season to season.

The Recreational program is for boys and girls, U13 through U19.  (NOTE:  If you are not familiar with this notation, the U means under.  A child would be placed on a team in which all the children are “under” the “age” as of December 31st of the current year;  i.e. U14 teams are composed of children that are under the age of 14 on December 31st of that year).  This sets the Rec program as the cap stone atop LSSC’s Rockets (U5 through U7) and Mod (U8 through U12) programs.
