Spring Apparel Order

The spring season is officially upon us! Some teams will start practices this week, weather-permitting. Please keep an eye out for emails from your coach so you know if your child's team is able to practice.
We are kicking off the season with our Littlestown AYSO apparel order. This year we are selling the apparel online. Check out what we have available at this link:
You can place your order online, using the online store. The firm deadline for apparel orders is April 14.
Just a reminder that we are holding referee training at our fields next Saturday March 24 at 10 a.m. Please let me know if you are interested in referee training, either next Saturday or at a future training. Many of our current referees have players who will soon age out of AYSO, so it would be great to have some new refs join our crew!
Here are some other important dates for your calendars:
-April 7- Opening Day (first day of games)
-April 17 and 18- Picture Days at our fields (taken by Pictures-R-Us)
-April 28- Bake Sale at Pine Creek Structures
-May 9- Shultz's sub order pick-up
-June 18-June 22- UK International AYSO camp at our fields, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. each night

Parent packets containing picture order forms and Shultz's sub order forms will be given out by coaches during the first week of April. More details about these events will be sent out over the coming weeks. Thank you in advance for your support of our fundraisers.



Referees Wanted!

As we prepare for the spring season, we are looking for some additional referees. Serving as a referee is a great way to watch the game up-close and to learn more about the rules of soccer. We have an instructor coming to our fields to provide referee training on Saturday March 24 at 10:00 a.m. If you are interested in attending this field training, please let me know. There is an online training portion for you to complete prior to the field training.

We are looking for youth referees as well. If you have a son or daughter in the 15U age group, he/she would be eligible to ref our 7U and 9U games. If your son or daughter is interested in this training, please let me know, and we will get him/her signed up for this training.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to support our organization.

Soccer News

Thank you for your continued patience as we get the fall season underway. Our Area Director has decided to push back the start of games to September 16. I still don't have a time frame for when we might receive the schedule, but as soon as we receive it, we will pass it on to you. Coaches may be considering practices or scrimmages for this Saturday 9/9; your child's coach would contact you directly if that is being considered for your child's team. The schedules for our younger teams (5U and 7U) are being finalized now and will be available shortly.

In other news, we have an exciting evening planned for the Littlestown AYSO on September 30. The Harrisburg City Islanders are hosting a soccer clinic for our players ages 5-15. This clinic is an opportunity for our kids to get some training from Islanders players! The clinic takes place at the Islanders stadium from 5:15 to 6:15 and is free of charge to Littlestown AYSO players. After the clinic, families are encouraged to stick around for the City Islanders' last home game. It is Littlestown AYSO night at the game, and the kids will get to march on the field during halftime. We will be able to purchase discount tickets for the event, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Littlestown AYSO. More details about this fabulous event will be headed your way, we just wanted you to be able to mark your calendars now for September 30.

Parent packets are being distributed at practices this week. These packets contain our Shultz's sub order forms and apparel order forms, as well as picture order forms. Team and individual pictures will be taken by Pictures-R-Us on September 18 and September 20. The picture schedule can be found under the Parents tab of our Littlestown Soccer website. Thank you in advance for your support of these fundraisers.

Registration Deadline 7/22/17

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacations! As you are enjoying these days of fun and sun, I'm sure soccer may not be at the top of your mind. However, the deadline for registration is just a week away! If you haven't had a chance to register your son or daughter yet, please take care of that this week. Just go onto the Littlestown soccer website, and click on the Registration tab for the instructions for online registration. After July 22nd, $30 late fee will be applied to each registration. 

Remember, we are using a new registration system this year, Blue Sombrero. For those who have encountered problems, we've managed to fix many of the glitches this new system caused. For example, those of you with daughters, will no longer need to register them as boys. All of our leagues are now set up so that both girls and boys can sign up! If you try to register and encounter issues, please send me an email at, and we will do our best to get things straightened out.
