The overarching mission of LHSA's Competitive Program is to reinforce the US Soccer Federation's core philosophy of fostering player development over winning through age appropriate instruction, effective training, fun, and competition.

Our primary goal is to develop confidence in technical ability and tactical understanding through guided discovery and facilitated learning.  We aim to develop Lawrence Township players both physically and emotionally in order to compete at the highest level of their ability and foster a true appreciation of the 'beautiful game'.  Since travel teams are "competitive" by their very nature, not all youth soccer players will have the technical ability, desire or maturity to participate and compete at this level.

Travel Program Details

Our travel teams play in the fall and spring and many teams also participate in tournaments several times a season, as well as off-season indoor winter leagues.

Our travel teams play in the Eastern Development Program (EDP) League as well as the Monmouth Ocean Soccer Association (MOSA) League.
