Lawton Soccer Club offers a comprehensive Competitive program designed to create a high level training environment to take all players to the next level. Lawton Soccer Club’s "Legacy" is a Competitive Soccer program for players ages 11 through 19 - the highest level of soccer offered at LSC. The Club will prepare players for high school, intercollegiate and future professional soccer opportunities, while developing important life skills including character, persistence, discipline and teamwork.
Legacy Competitive teams practice 2-3 times per week, with a licensed coaching staff. League games are generally played on Saturdays with occasional Sunday games. Home games are played at the Big Green Soccer Complex in Lawton OK, while away games can take you to all corners of the state. Tournaments are very important to the LSC development of all our players. All Teams will compete in at least 2 tournaments every season.
All competitive players participate in a tryout process where our coaches evaluate and place players according to individual skill level, attitude, and experience. Tryouts for competitive soccer are held each summer and the program is a "Year Long" program running with the school year (Fall-Spring).
Under the guidance of our Competitive Director, Director of Coaching, and licensed coaches, our Legacy teams are exposed to a wide array of soccer knowledge and experience. Our staff consists of coaches who have playing experience as well as coaching experience ranging from competitive to collegiate. LSC coaches will be held to a high degree of accountability. The coaches will maintain a high level of professionalism and will keep their role as a coach in perspective. Our coaches will be positive role models in personal management, ethics, appearance, and behavior.

Questions? We are here to help!
LSC Legacy is a competitive soccer program. Differing from our standard Recreational program, players must attend a sanctioned team try-out session prior to player acceptance. Tryouts are overseen by the LSC Competitive Director, Director of Coaching, and Legacy Coaches. Those overseeing Tryouts will be looking for these 3 core subjects:
1. Ability level - players are assessed based on Technical, Tactical, Physical, Psychosocial and Psychological criteria appropriate for their age group.
2. Commitment level - players who consider soccer to be their primary sport and/or want to excel in the game with future aspirations, are a good fit for the Legacy program. Practice attendance is mandatory.
3. Sportsmanship - Above all else, Legacy coaches are looking for players prepared to contribute to a team atmosphere. Individual players do not make a team. All players on our Legacy teams are expected to push each other to get better and stronger as a unit. "There is no I in team". Coaches are looking for leaders to help achieve team goals.
Playing Up Philosophy and Policy
Lawton Legacy will not allow any player to register for tryouts at an older birth year.
1. Players must try out at their designated birth year. If a player is excelling in their own birth year tryout, the coaching leadership can consider their candidacy to be evaluated to play and be registered onto the older birth year team.
2. The player must be ranked a top 5 player in their own age group to be considered for playing up.
3. If a player is invited to participate in an older birth year Tryout, Coaches will initiate the evaluation at the older age group internally and will communicate with parents and the player accordingly. An invitation to tryout with an older birth year team, does not constitute acceptance to the team.
