We love our kids!

At LUFC, we strive to provide quality soccer experiences for our members in a safe and healthy environment.  In an effort to achieve this goal, LUFC has compiled a set of safety policies and guidelines regarding several areas of the organization.  The objective is to outline procedures, many of them new, which can be followed by players, coaches, parents and others to provide a safe, enjoyable place for our children.


The Player Safety Policies and Guidlines focus on:

  1. Parent Responsibilities at Practice and Games

  3. Inclement Weather Procedures
  4. Check-in and Check-out Procedures
  5. Medical Releases and Situations
  6. LUFC (Background Checks)
