Lou Ramos Winter Leagues

The 2017-2018 Lou Ramos Winter Leagues Begin Soon!

    an exciting, fast-paced winter league to keep your game sharp!

    "The walled arenas at the Lou Ramos Center allow the ball to remain in play up to 95% of the game. This means more contact with the ball for the players, and a much greater opportunity to utilize dribbling, passing, and receiving techniques we stress at the younger age groups. Rather than waiting for the ball to be put back in play on a small touch-line field, players are constantly engaged in the game, and that is great fun."

    Winter League Information:
    • Games at the Lou Ramos Center & Turff Club: The LRC is new facility with full plexiglass walls for excellent viewing, heated interior, indoor bathrooms, televisions, and full concessions stand: conveniently located down the street from the Turff Club!
    • The Lehigh Valley Winter Leagues use the U.S. Soccer Mandated Birth Year Age Groupings.
    • A 10-game season, keeping costs lower and assuring all teams have finished their season by Spring.
    • "Game Day" times are approximations of your usual game times. These may be moved in extreme cases as necessary.
    • Larger brackets may be split and tiered to provide for closer competition (i.e. one 12-team league into two separate divisions).
    • Back-to-Back age groups or genders may be combined for optimal bracketing  (Combined 2008/2009, Boys/Girls, etc)
    • 4 Goal Differential Max - Rewards teams for playing good defense while ahead instead of running up scores.
    • Games will usually take on your primary game day. The alternative game day is primary for rescheduling, or coaching conflicts with the primary day.
    • Registration ends on November 15th - Leagues open on December 4th!
    league referee INFORMATION:

    Referee Fees are not included in the League price. All league referees are assigned by Lehigh Valley Youth Soccer League Referee Assigner - Hal Grahn. Referee fees are to be paid directly by the coach individually before each game starts.

    • Youth: $11/Game
    • High School: $13/Game
    • Women: $13/Game
    • Adult: $15/Game
    "HOUSE TEAM" INFORMATION:

    Seeking a team to participate with in the Lehigh Valley Winter Leagues? Sign up for the "House Teams" at no cost below to be put on a waiting list. If enough players sign up to form a team, we will create a new team from those players. If not, we will reach out to other coaches in the division to see if anyone is seeking additional players! Make sure to select your age group from the drop down menu in the registration when signing up. 

    For players born in 2010 and younger, contact LVU Juniors Academy director Niko Stefanides at nstefanides@lehighvalleyunited.com if you are seeking a team.

    registration INstructions:
    • Coach/Manager completes online team registration for the appropriate age group with a $200 down payment.
    • Upon registration you will receive a "Team Captain Email" to create your roster.
    • Populate all player names/emails for your roster. By adding email, your members can approve the manditory waiver online!
    • Roster size is unlimited, but all players must be added to online team roster with an approved waiver.
    • Full online roster, waiver completion, and payment* are mandatory before the first game. During the opening week of leagues we will check in all teams for roster/waiver approval, and un-approved player can sign a physical copy of the waiver.
    • Schedules will be created and sent to teams within the next few days following the close of registration.

    *Any team that has not paid their balance in full before their first game will be assessed a $100 late fee.

    *Over 35 Woman's League is a new initiative, and may be combined into the Open Women's League if enough teams don't sign up. Over 35 Woman's League rosters may have up to (3) maximum players between the ages of 25-35, to help existing teams with a larger age spread.
