Recreational Soccer

Lincoln Youth Soccer was founded through an alliance of recreational soccer clubs and is committed to supporting the recreational game.

The Kindergarten through 5th Grade recreational clubs (Forest Heights, Hillside, Vista, and Skyline) continue to run their recreational programs and partner under the umbrella of Lincoln Youth Soccer. Once kids reach middle school, we offer an LYS Middle School Program. After Middle School, we encourage kids to participate in the High School Rec Co-Ed League.
