Welcome to the New Lebanon Soccer Club

Thanks for taking the time to visit the New Lebanon Soccer Club website. We've tried to put all necessary information on this site to make it easy for our members and guests to find the information they are looking for about our club.


New Lebanon Soccer Club – Mission Statement

The New Lebanon Soccer Club endeavors to provide youth soccer players (ages 5-17) with a positive experience in playing and learning about the game of soccer. By instructing our soccer players in the skills and fundamentals of the game of soccer; the New Lebanon Soccer Club hopes that our players will also benefit through improved physical health, physical conditioning, coordination, and the fun of being a member of a team. The Club also hopes to instill in all of our players a sense of good sportsmanship, fellowship, and a commitment to the enjoyment of the game of soccer.

The New Lebanon Soccer Club offers a Recreational program and a Travel program. Both are summarized below. Please see the Travel Program or Recreational Program links for more complete information.

Recreational Soccer Program

The Recreational Program stresses the fundamentals of soccer and concentrates on the players having fun playing soccer. In conjunction with having fun, our recreational coaches try to instruct our players in the basic skills and strategy of playing soccer. Recreational Soccer is generally split in three or four different age level groups (Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd and 4th Grade and sometimes 5th and 6th grade) and encourage fellowship and enjoyment of the game of soccer. In the Recreational League, winning is not a priority; quite the contrary, learning about the game of soccer and having fun with the rest of the team is the priority. The Recreational League has two seasons: a fall season usually starting in September, and a spring season usually starting in late April. Recreational Registration forms are available on our forms page.


Travel Soccer Program

The Travel Program starts to emphasize the competitive level of soccer play. As the travel players progress into the older age brackets, they focus more on competition. Typically, our Travel League players are players who want more of a challenge from soccer. They enjoy improving their soccer playing skills by competing with other competitive regional teams. Our Travel League teams are coached by certified coaches who have completed coaching certification courses given by the United States Soccer Federation. Travel teams generally require a greater level of commitment from our players in terms of practice time and personal commitment from the players and their parents. Travel teams play in age groups that are established by the Capital District Youth Soccer League (CDYSL). Tryouts are conducted for travel teams. As a general rule, if a team has to cut players, the most talented, competitive and committed players will be given first preference in forming travel teams. The Travel League has only one season for U14 and up; a spring season that starts at the end of April. A fall travel season is also offered for U10’s and U12’s (since they don’t have the opportunity to play for a high school team in the Fall). Registraton forms for Travel soccer are available on our forms page.
