The Competitive Program offers year-round and season specific player development opportunities for the most enthusiastic and committed soccer players, ages U9-U19 (U8's have the opportunity to play at the U9 level). The goal of the Competitive Program is to develop players to their highest level both on and off the field.

LUFC is committed to providing exceptional development opportunities for its players. In order to achieve this, the club offers year-round training and playing opportunities for any player who is committed to improving. It doesn't matter if you are on a top team or are just starting out; players of all abilities will have access to high-quality development opportunities throughout the year to help them reach their full potential.

If you are not looking for or cannot commit to a year-round model you can choose to play competitive soccer for just the seasons we play (Fall or Spring/Summer).


Please see the Team Plans page for an outline of the team plans for the various age groups and levels.
