Practices are coed; men and ladies race separately). The schedule for the first week of practice is listed below. Schedules for the remainder of the season will be available prior to the first day of school.  

·         Men's Soccer: Tuesday, August 1; Thursday, August 3; and Friday, August 4. All practices will be held from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at New Centre Park in Clover. All athletes will be required to wear shin guards and soccer boots/cleats. Please bring plenty of water.

Men's soccer practice for Mon, July 31 has been cancelled due to scheduling emergency.

·         Ladies' Volleyball: Monday, July 31; Tuesday, August 1; Thursday, August 3; Friday, August 4. All practices will be held at Lake Wylie Christian Assembly from 3:30-5:30. All athletes will be required to wear knee pads. Please bring plenty of water.

Required paperwork: The laws of South Carolina and insurance regulations require us to have the following paperwork before any student may step onto the field, court, or course. No exceptions - please don't ask our coaches to do something illegal by allowing your student to participate without all the required forms.

·         Physical form. This form must be dated on or after July 1, 2017, and will be effective for the entire 2017-2018 school year. Your doctor may have a standard form in his/her office, or you may use the form attached to this email. If you are unable to procure an appointment with your doctor, most Minute Clinics will perform sports physicals, and many offer back-to-school specials.

·         Concussion training. This form must be read and completed by each individual student athlete AND a parent; we are not able to accept "family forms" for sibling athletes.

·         Release form. Each individual student will need a parent-signed release form; again, no family forms. More joy!

Commitment forms and athletic fees will be due no later than Tuesday, August 8. More information about these will be available at the first practice.

State Soccer Champs!

April 29, 2017
By Mariner Sports

Mariners are 2-A state champs in soccer!

    The girls soccer team went undefeated through both the season and the state playoffs, earning its first ever SCACS state soccer title.

The Mariners first swept through their conference with a balance of strong defense and an agressive scoring strategy. That same combination helped Lake Pointe overpower a tough Emmanuel team from Hartsville 5-1 in the semi-finals, and to clinch the championship 5-2 over a talented Hampton Park team from Greenville.

The state title required many components, of course. From the ingredients of a strong team and hard work, to unselfish play and encouraging coaching, everything came together through the season. 

The accomplishment is the latest installment in a longer story. Two years ago, in LPA’s inaugural soccer season, the girls' team fought valiantly just to earn a win. Last year, the team was highly competitive, barely missing the playoffs when the tie-breaker didn’t go the team’s way.

This season, the Mariners left no doubt or discussion, achieving an undefeated season all the way to top match. Well done. Go Green!
