Laramie Soccer Club aims to provide all players of all abilities and ages the opportunity to play soccer at every level of youth soccer. Players as young as five years of age can join the club and play soccer all the way through to U19 and beyond into adulthood.
The Laramie united Player Pathway
Laramie Soccer Club is proud to announce the introduction of the Player Pathway for youth soccer in Laramie. As shown above, the club has developed a clear path for all players of all abilities. From players as young as five years old joining our new Lil' Wrangles program, replacing the old LSA and Blizzard programs, to creating a soccer journey for those players who hope to go on and play at the highest possible competitive level, to the more recreational player, the opportunity to play throughout their youth soccer journey is clearly defined.
Looking forward, all teams associated with Laramie Soccer Club will play under the 'United' banner. The United program, starting at U6 in our new Pre-Academy Program, and into the new Laramie United Academy, is a sign of the unity between what was LSA and Blizzard.

U14 - U19: Laramie United Tournament Teams
Due to school athletic restrictions in the Spring, and in the absence of a competitive league for these age groups in the fall in Colorado, we have created the Laramie United Tournament Program.
