The deadline to sign up for the spring season is Sunday, Dec. 1. Besides the in-person registration, you can also register at visit

Uniform fees can be paid through Saturday, Feb. 1.

The goals are teaching soccer skills and tactics, providing a safe, fun environment to learn and play soccer, and to foster sportsmanship and teamwork among soccer players. They are the only Louisiana state-affiliated soccer organization in Washington Parish.

The club will have two seasons each year with the first running from March 1, 2020 through May 2, 2020.

Franklinton Soccer Club is not a travel team. They will play and practice locally with a few exceptions. The goal is to give each team above the 10-year old age group the opportunity to play teams outside Franklinton two times each season. The other teams are fellow LSA members. They also would like to give each team above the age of 10 the opportunity to play in a tournament at the end of each season. The tournaments would involve other LSA teams and would be in Hammond, Covington or Baton Rouge.
