The Laconia Youth Soccer League has been giving kids in the local Lakes Region communities the opportunity to learn soccer in a fun and engaging environment for more than 30 years. But a few months before the season started in August this year, League volunteers discovered all their equipment had been contaminated and damaged by mold caused by a leak in their storage location.

“We discovered that the cost to replace the equipment was $12,000,” said Laura Dunn, Laconia Youth Soccer League President. “The City of Laconia stepped in to help cover some of the costs and repair the facility. Meredith Village Savings Bank also graciously donated $5,000 to help replace the equipment. We are so appreciative and grateful of the support we have received.”

This year, the Laconia Youth Soccer League is hosting nearly 400 kids from multiple Lakes Region communities. The fall season started August 1 and runs through Oct. 5 at the Robbie Mills and Opechee fields. Go to to learn about the League.
