Lou Ramos Winter Leagues

The 2021-2022 Lou Ramos Winter Leagues are Back!

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

"The walled turf 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."

2022-2023 LEAGUE RESOURCES:
Schedules 
Covid-19 Safety implementations:

*As new information comes forth, LRC reserves the right to implement new regulations

  • Sanitizer stations
  • Per CDC guidelines we recommend masks for all vaccinated and nonvaccinated people. Players will not be required to be masked while playing, however, that will still be an option for players who chose to
  • We also recommend only one spectator per player to ensure we do not reach maximum occupancy restrictions
League Information:
  • The Winter League season will start up on December 5th!! Registration deadline = November 21st 
  • Holiday Breaks: December 23rd-26th & December 30th-January 2nd
  • Games at the Lou Ramos Center: The LRC is a new facility with top-of-the-line turf fields, full plexiglass walls for excellent viewing, a heated interior, indoor bathrooms, televisions, and full concessions stand.
  • The Lehigh Valley Winter Leagues use the U.S. Soccer Mandated Birth Year Age Groupings.
  • A full 10-game season keeps costs lower and assures 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 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 instead of running up scores.
  • Games will usually take place on your primary game day. Teams should be prepared to play games on the alternate day if necessary for scheduling purposes.
    • ​Age groups will be capped at 9 teams initially to ensure each group has time blocks on their primary and alternate days. This is subject to change for groups where we create multiple divisions.
  • For the Middle School and High School age groups, we are not restricting each group to certain birth years. However, we have the right to examine each team at those age groups to ensure they are not taking advantage of this rule and playing more skillful, older kids "down" an age group.
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: $15/Game
