Loveland Youth Soccer Association



The Loveland Soccer Club began in 1976 as the Loveland Youth Soccer Association (LYSA).  It was formed to organize soccer practices, teams and leagues for families who lived in the Loveland school district.  The program affiliated with the Soccer Association for Youth (SAY) which provided team and league structure for the rapidly expanding community interest in soccer.  Our club has grown since its 1976, and today offers a wide variety of soccer programs for ages 3 to 18.  In 2015 Loveland Youth Soccer Association created Loveland Storm FC, a competitive (select) program with a strong community orientation.  The following year Loveland Soccer Academy was formed to offer a stronger focus on foundational soccer skills for more advanced young players.  In 2018 the Loveland Youth Soccer Association changed its name to Loveland Soccer Club to reflect the broadened scope of program offerings and ages served.  Today Loveland Youth Soccer Association still represents the heritage programs that offer any child the opportunity to play soccer in the community. 


As we look to the future, we see more opportunities to provide an age-based training/practice curriculum for coaches.  The goal is more consistency in how we teach soccer and more focus on the skills that make the game more fun to older players.  We believe there are advantages to reducing the team playing size for our programs that serve our 7U to 10U players  And, we want to ensure how we train and play continues to be fun for our players and families. 


While we love the game of soccer, we see its real value as a way to equip our youth with experiences and opportunities to build life skills.  Our vision is a growing and vibrant club that is player centered, family friendly, community focused. 


We believe:


  • All players should have an opportunity to develop and grow
  • Soccer is a vehicle to teach lifelong skills, provide a fun experience for kids and a way to develop community.
  • Wins and losses are best viewed in how children experience and learn lifelong skills from them.
  • Adults/coaches are incredibly important in their capacity to teach important lifelong skills through the experience of sports
  • Family and community are a critical foundation.
  • We cannot take youth sports too seriously, it is a game for youth, not adults
