LYSA / LFC ANNOUNCE CENTRAL KENTUCKY’S PREMIER ADULT SOCCER LEAGUE
Lexington, KY – March 10, 2020
Lexington Youth Soccer Association, Inc. / Lexington FC (LYSA/LFC) (Ky.) has long been regarded as THE Lexington Soccer club for all players – from the most elite in the Commonwealth and the Region (LFC), to recreational players (LYSA), to players with intellectual, emotional, and or physical disabilities (TOPSoccer).
LYSA / LFC is now excited to announce the inaugural season of the LYSA Adult Soccer League that will begin play in April of 2020 and will include co-ed “competitive,” “recreational” and “over 40” leagues. LYSA/LFC has been recently collaborating with several leaders of the Central Kentucky Adult Soccer League (CKAS) to transition management of Central Kentucky’s largest adult soccer league to LYSA/LFC effective immediately. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN and interested players should visit www.lysa.org for more information and to register.
LYSA/LFC is confident that it will be able to offer what the adults in Central Kentucky, many of which have kids who play in LYSA/LFC/TOPSoccer, have been wanting and needing for so long – consistency and predictability and some of the best quality soccer fields available for adults in the region. This offering of an adult program within the LYSA/LFC club offerings “…is long overdue, will give the players to play their games on the same day of every week and at the same location while freeing up their weekends to spend with their families and, hopefully, enjoying watching their kids play in LYSA/LFC/TOPSoccer” said Marty Tucker, Board Chair and Lexington FC Club Director.
This collaboration and partnership with LYSA/LFC and the largest organized group of adult soccer players in the region “...was a no-brainer and further recognizes LYSA/LFC as the principal source of opportunities for all types and levels of players to enjoy the game of soccer,” said Allen Sharon, a member representing the former adult league. “Although we have been generally successful in the past, I, along with Jeb Messer and Eric Lindsey, who have organized and managed the adult league in Lexington for ___ years, recently realized the organization and structure within LYSA/LFC would best allow us to grow the adult game in Central Kentucky.” “This was something that no other club around could match and was an opportunity we could not pass up.”
“I have been involved with LYSA/LFC for 12 years and I always felt that our mission in providing soccer opportunities to everyone in Central Kentucky included opportunities for adults to enjoy the game,” said Catherine Carrico, President of LYSA/LFC. “I am excited that LYSA/LFC has stuck with its mission and is now again able to offer these additional opportunities to our families and the soccer community as a whole.”
