Thursday, July 7
Does the club run both youth and adult teams?
We currently host U8-U19 boys and girls teams. In the future, the club may have a league for adults, but not currently.
Where is the soccer club office?
The Ypsilanti Lincoln Soccer Club does not have an office.
Why is the deadline for registration so early?
An early deadline allows us to start practices early, meet our league deadlines, and purchase uniforms in a timely manner.
When are practices and games? When do practices begin? When does the season begin?
Our coaches set up the practice schedule. Some of our teams practice T/Th, and others practice M/W. 4 home games are scheduled by the coaches with board member support. 4 away games are scheduled by the opposing coaches and clubs. Most games will be played on Saturday afternoons, but there will be some midweek evening games. League games begin after Labor Day in the fall and the first week of April in the spring.
Are parents expected to be involved with the club?
Yes, definitely. Parents make the club what it is today. We need some parents to volunteer for snacks, to help other parents learn rules, and aid with try-ins and camps, while others take on board projects or seats, coach, assistant coach, or become team managers. Coaching clinics are available to interested persons.
Where are practice and game locations?
Ford Heritage Park is the primary location for practices and games. However, Ypsilanti High School, West Middle School, Frog Island Park, Bessie Hoffman and Wendell Holmes have been used for practices in the past. U13 and older teams may play games at Ypsilanti High School or Ford Lake Park.
