Why am I not receiving email messages

Email from coaches, sport leadership, or Organization leadership can be sent using the email system built into this website.  No special lists are maintained as email addresses are retrieved from each Member's profile.

Sending and receiving email are two very different functions and unfortunately, LMYA can only control the sending part.  If you're not receiving email, please read the below and take the appropriate actions.  If you still have issues receiving email, please contact the webmaster to
  1. Most messages are sent from a generic email address "on behalf" of the person actually sending the message.  Some email providers do not differentiate between this type of sender and a SPAMMING sender.  This may be a reason that you're not receiving email.  To resolve this, please make sure that you have "whitelisted" "*" as a verified and valid sender.
  2. Most email providers these days have web page access, meaning that you can access your email by going to a website via your computer or mobile device internet browser.  Checking the SPAM and / or Junk folders on these sites will help you to identify whether or not you're actually not getting email or if they are just going into SPAM or JUNK.

    1. Check this by logging in
    2. Click on "My Profile" at the top of the page

5. What is my role as a parent for my child's soccer team?
    Parents are critical to the success of the team and club! Parents volunteer for the roles of coach, officer, chauffeur, cheerleader, photographer, manager, food preparer, field marshall, linesman, committee member& There are many things a parent can do to make the soccer experience a pleasant one for both their child and themselves.
*    Once in a while, we need to find a coach for a particular age group. Parents are asked to step in and coach a team. Experienced coaches are happy to help new coaches get started. Coach courses and training are available throughout the year with any fees reimbursed by the club.
*    Please be prompt in delivery of your child to practice and games and in picking him/her up. Please stay and watch practices and games. It means a lot to your child to show an interest in what they do.
*    Please check in with your child's coach periodically to see if there is any information that you need. If you will be missing a practice or a game, please let your coach know as soon as possible. All of our coaches are more than happy to address your concerns or questions. After practice is an ideal time to do this.
*    Be available to kick the ball around with your child at home. The more touches a child has on the soccer ball, the better his/her skills will become. Have them teach you what they learn in practice.
*    Avoid material rewards such as paying for goals or treats for a good job on the field. Try to instill an attitude that reflects the importance of team play and the joy of the game as the reward.
*    Be a good listener for your child.
*    Avoid coaching from the sidelines. Players get confused if mom and dad are telling him/her to do one thing when the coach is telling him/her something else. They tell me they don't even hear their parents.
*    Be a positive spectator and respect both teams and the referee. Practice good sportsmanship.
*    After the game whether they win or especially if they lose, don't critique or instruct your child. Positive reinforcement works best. Saying, Great effort and Did you have fun de-emphasize the final score, but rather focus on the fun of the game. Avoid blaming others too. Make your child feel important and let him/her know that he is contributing to a team effort.
*    Allow your child to be a child and enjoy the game without pressure from you to perform.
