Lumberton Youth Association Recreational Soccer Programs
The Lumberton Youth Association (LYA) is a private, non-profit volunteer based organization serving the community of Lumberton. The LYA provides an introduction to soccer for children 5 and under in a fun, recreational setting of small sided soccer games and drills run by professional trainers and volunteer parents.  For older players (ages 6-12), a recreational soccer program led by volunteer coaches is available for players not ready for the more competitive travel soccer program. Both programs focus on age-appropriate soccer development and strive to emphasize sportsmanship, team play and individual growth through competition.
