Congratulations Lititz Elite U15B!
Lititz Elite U15B Advance to National Final of President's Cup Competition

The Lititz Elite U15 Boys were crowned champions of the state-wide President's Cup Competition after defeating FC York Elite by a score of 3-0.  Lititz Elite played in the Regional Finals, held in Slippery Rock, PA, on Memorial Day Weekend.  After a great deal of success in their preliminary games, the Lititz boys played in the event final where they were unfortunate to lose the game after controlling large portions of the play.  Depsite the loss, the Lititz boys will progress to the National Finals later this summer.

The President's Cup is a national championship competition that starts at the state level.  Teams compete in a World Cup format round robin competition to win placement in a "knock-out" round.  Teams advancing to the knock-out rounds play until a champion is determined.  Those champions advance to a regional final and eventually to a national final.

One of the very attractive qualities of the competition is that the round robin provides entrants with a series of guaranteed games rather than a single guaranteed elimination game.  As such, teams get more time to prepare and compete.  This tends to help players progress in their individual and team development.  

The LANCO League would like to congratulate Lititz Elite and wish them the best of luck as they go on to represent EPYSA and Lancaster County at the Regional Finals.

Players to Watch at the World Cup
This summer's tournament features a wealth of young talent. (Video)

The World Cup is on its way.  Many well established stars will put their skills on display as they try to bring home soccer's most coveted prize.  While the tournament gives us the chance to watch players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi do battle and cement themselves as legends of the game, the stage is also set to welcome the next generation of world class talent.  As we move toward the summer's tournament, the LANCO League will periodically highlight some players to watch this summer.  For more content like this, check out the LANCO League Facebook Page.

Lampeter-Strasburg Youth Soccer to Host "E" License Coaching Course

 

National E & D License restructure

On June 1st both the E and D License became National Licenses standardized by US Soccer. The number of hours for each course will also increase from 18 to 24 hours for the E License and 36 to 60 hours for the D License (these hours include pre-requisite course work). Only coaches who have an A License from US Soccer and have undergone training by US Soccer and Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer staff will be permitted to instruct these licenses. The increase in hours will now be more in line with UEFA coaching courses and better prepare a candidate for the C, B and A Licenses.

·      Online - Laws of the game tutorial and test.

·      Online – Concussion tutorial and test.
