What is Classic Soccer?
Classic is another name for competitive or select soccer. In Oregon, Classic soccer is divided into several levels:
Premier: The highest level of competitive soccer.
Classic: The next level, usually divided into First (I), Second (II), and Third (III) divisions. LCYSA usually plays Classic I or II.
What is the time commitment for a Classic player?
A Classic team will train at least twice a week during the summer and bump up to 3 times as the summer tournaments approach. The teams will play in two summer tournaments (July and August). For a tournament there may be 4 or more games in a weekend. In addition to tournaments the Classic team will play 10 games (starting the weekend after Labor Day until the 4th weekend in October). Weekend games in the fall may occur on Saturday or Sunday. Travel for tournaments and fall games will be no further than the Portland area.
What makes Classic Soccer different from Rec?
The Classic program is for skilled and motivated players who desire an increased level of competition from that offered in the Recreation program. Travel is involved to away games and tournaments.
Roughly half of the games are played at HOME in Warrenton, the rest are AWAY. All training is at the Warrenton Soccer Complex. And... we wear cool uniforms, the blue and gold of LCYSA!
What kind of expenses can we expect in a Classic program?
LCYSA's Classic program is one of the most reasonable in the state. Nevertheless, it's more expensive then our recreational program by a substantial amount. Here is what you might expect to pay during a typical Classic season:
Team fee is $300.00. This covers insurance, two tournaments, league play and a full uniform kit. (Home and Away Jeseys, shorts, and socks)
Travel expenses (hotel and transportation) are not covered by LCYSA.
Scholarships may be available based on need. Please talk to your coach or a board member for details.
