News from LWAA - June 30, 2009

Serving the Bethel and Lake Wylie communities

• Fall Soccer Registration: The LWAA Soccer program has accepted an invitation to join with Charlotte United at The Palisades starting with our fall 2009 season. We are now expanding to include all children from the Lake Wylie, Bethel and Clover areas, and we also are adding the southwest Mecklenburg County community. Most of our games will be held at the new soccer complex at The Palisades. The partnership with Charlotte United will allow us to offer more clinics for players and coaches. Our players also will have an easier path to join the competitive upper level soccer offered by Charlotte United. We will be keeping our registration fees as low as possible: $45 for the fall season. We hope to grow to more than 400 children this fall. Online registration is available with a nominal processing fee. In-person registration places and dates will be posted on our soccer pages at and in future issues of the Lake Wylie Pilot.
