General Dates for Spring 2024

Please note, all of these dates may change depending on weather or other events outside our control.

The plan for the Spring 2024 season is for all teams to begin practicing by the week of April 1st. For this to happen, we will need all coaches set before Spring Break, as there will be coaches meetings on March 12th and 13th starting at 6pm in the LHS Community Room 3. If you plan to coach, assist, help in any way, please let us know ASAP so we can get you set up as a coach in the system. For player safety, there are items you must complete before being allowed to help.

Important Dates:

  • April 1 – Practices begin
  • April 6 – Match Day 1 for Rec (U5-U9) – Rec+ games to begin this weekend as well
  • April 8 – Flood the fields for the eclipse!
  • April 13 – PICTURE DAY with Spicklemire Photography, and Match Day 2 for Rec
  • April 20 – Match Day 3 for Rec
  • April 27 – Match Day 4 for Rec
  • May 4 – Match Day 5 for Rec
  • May 11 – Match Day 6 for Rec
  • May 17-19 – Rec+ (U11-U19) Tournament Weekend at Ben Davis! (Rec+ Season from April 6-May 12, 8 games)
    • We CANNOT alter teams, so if your team misses the tournament due to a lack of players, we CANNOT make it up to those other players. Please plan to attend.
  • (TBD/likely May 11) – End of Season Picnic and Trophy Celebration
    • If you are interested in helping plan/organize/run the picnic, please reach out and let us know. We need helpers!

As dates and locations are set or more items are added, we will update this. Emails will also be sent to everyone registered/in the GotSport system when those are set.

Contact Us

Going forward, if you need to reach us, please email directly to as our webform for contacting us is no longer working.

Please make sure you have NOT opted out of receiving emails from LYSA. On your GotSport Account/Main Profile tab you should have the option to Opt-Out of mass email communication. If you selected the check box, please de-select it. 100% of the emails from LYSA Administration will come through GotSport and you will miss out on important information. IF you have checked all of this and you have not received a single email from LYSA or your coach, email us immediately!

Additionally, in regards to GotSport, please DO NOT ever pay for anything (the app/team app) etc. We do not recommend it, and we do not want you wasting your money on it. The best way to view GotSport is via their direct website and while on a computer (it is tricky but manageable on a phone or tablet.) If we could, we would not use this site, but we are mandated by Indiana Soccer. Apologies for all confusion and issues with GotSport, but we are here to answer any questions.
