Parents, below are links to information about head protection specifically designed for the sport of soccer.
As you may be aware, the R.I. Super Liga has a concussion policy in effect during both the fall and spring outdoor seasons regarding head injuries sustained during a game. The LYSA Board has decided it is in the best interest of our players to adopt a similar policy for the winter indoor season. Effective immediately, an indoor concussion policy will be in force. See LYSA Indoor Concussion Policy here.
We’re also including this link to a Fact Sheet for Parents published by the CDC.
All of us at LYSA want to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the Lincoln Lady Lions U10 Girls team, and to coaches Mike Picard and Ryan Downey, for being recognized by The Super Liga as winners of the Fall Tournament Team Sportsmanship Award.
Well done girls!
For those of you with first time players in the LYSA competitive program, they will need a uniform. Our uniform supplier is DMK Sports in Smithfield. LYSA is currently in the process of changing over uniform styles. The same navy blue color is there, but the logo and piping will be different from older style uniforms that last year’s players are wearing. We are not mandating returning players to buy the new uniforms this year, however by September 2013 everyone will need to be in the newer style.
The uniform ‘Pack’ is shorts, socks and two shirts (Navy & White) and will cost $74 to our members.
Samples are now in at DMK. You will need to bring your child there to get them sized. Don at DMK Sports said walk-ins are fine, if you would like to call ahead you can reach DMK by phone at 401-232-3609 or by e-mail at donjr at dmksports.com
All of us at LYSA would like to congratulate Victoria Williams who has been named the 2012 Angelo D. Passaretta Memorial Female Referee of the Year by the R.I. Youth Super Liga . This is a wonderful accomplishment.
Well done Victoria!
