As an independent volunteer organization registering over 500 players each season, it is no small feat getting everything up and running smoothly every Saturday. Our longevity and success as an organization is thanks in large part to the parents and community members who have graciously volunteered their help over the years.

There are a number of ways you can help:

Coach a Team - We always need coaches! Coaching can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Check out our For Coaches page for more information.

Join the Board - There’s a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes, from the initial planning and marketing to the official kickoff of each season. The LSA board is a small group of volunteer parents, and with the amount of growth we’ve been experiencing over the past year, we simply can’t do it all without more help. Please consider joining the board. We meet monthly and welcome your input and support.  Click Here to fill out the board member application.

Equipment Trailer Pulling - Do you have a hitch on your car? We have a small equipment trailer that needs to be towed to Memorial Fields each Saturday. We usually split up this task between a few families, if possible.

Set-Up/Tear-Down - Our soccer goals are not permanent so they need to be set up and torn down every Saturday. We assign this task to different teams each week. Your coach will be in touch when it’s your team’s turn.

Concessions - We sell donuts, coffee, water ($1), and  gatorade ($2) at all Saturday Soccer games in a small tent on the main field. 

Parent involvement is truly necessary for the success of our program. Thank you for your help!


There are 5 core principles at the heart of our Saturday Soccer program:

  1. Saturday Soccer is a means to teach and learn sportsmanship and essential core values such as discipline, respect, responsibility, fairness and teamwork.
  2. Parents and the surrounding community are essential in creating and supporting the environment that can promote positive athletic experiences.
  3. Coaches are the key to making the youth sport experience positive and educational.
  4. All students deserve the right to participate and learn through sport.
  5. The goal of sports should be to build self-confidence and teach a lifelong skill for good health and fitness

With these in mind, it’s important to stress the following:

  • Kids Learn Their Behavior From Watching Adults
    Soccer builds character. Adverse situations are likely to occur and it's important for adults to set a positive example by respecting referees, coaches, opponents, and other fans. The game of soccer is full of emotions and properly controlling these emotions is vital to ensuring a positive experience for everyone. 
  • Referees Will Make Mistakes
    Most of our refs are between the ages of 13 and 17.  They might make a questionable call from time to time but they're doing their very best. They are learning and improving at every game, just like our players and coaches, and they deserve our respect. 
  • It's Only a Game
    Soccer can be exciting, competitive, challenging, rewarding, disappointing, exhilarating, and inspiring ... but in the end it's only a game. It's ultimately about having fun!

Uniform Donation

There are many Lakewood families that lack the resources to buy the necessary uniform or cleats for their children. You can help by donating your used LSA uniforms, shin guards, cleats, or soccer balls that your children have outgrown or you no longer use. With your help, we can get more kids out there on the soccer field. Just bring your donations with you to any Saturday game and drop them off at the concession stand.
