The Indiana Soccer League (ISL), with the DOCs of all the clubs, is looking forward to coordinating and assisting league play throughout the state. The U13, U14, U15, U16, U17, and U18 Premier and 1st Divisions will play a state wide schedule. 2nd Division and below (numbers of Divisions will be determined by the quality and number of teams playing) for U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, U15, U16, U17, and U18 will be playing a more regional schedule.
We are looking to divide the state into 11 regions: 3 across the northern part of the state, 6 around the Indianapolis area and 2 in the south. Please remember, a lot will be determined by how many teams we have in your region. For the U9 & U10 Academies/teams, we would like to see the clubs/teams playing in a specific region to communicate, with our help, as to how you want to play. Do you want to divide all your teams equally or do you want a 1st team (s) and 2nd team(s)? From this, it is our hope that we come up with Best Practice Recommendations for this age group and others.
In addition to the league schedule, clubs/teams interested in more games may request them and we will be happy to set up fields and referees. Prior to directly ISL to add additional games, please communicate with your club officials, team players and parents. It would help if you had already communicated with the club/team that you are looking to schedule. If you are setting up friendlies on your own, please register those games in GotSoccer so we know when fields will not be available.
We are asking the DOCs and coaches to communicate to ISL where to best place your team. Certainly, after a season of play, adjustments can be made. On the pre-select list, the winners of the various Regional Leagues were placed in 2nd Division. This is not final. The DOCs can make adjustments.
Here is a guide to help with your decision:
From spring 2012 fall 2012
U12 Premier and successful U13 Premier
U12 Premier and not successful U13 1st Division
U12 1st and need promotion U13 Premier
U12 1st and did ok U13 1st Division

U12 2nd and need promotion U13 1st Division
U12 2nd and did ok U13 2nd Division
U12 2nd and struggled/failed U13 3rd Division
We hope this helps in the placement process. Please contact George Perry, George@soccerindiana.org or 309-536-0960 if you have any questions as to placement. If you have any questions as to team registration, contact Angel Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Beginning the fall of 2012, Indiana Soccer will expand the Indiana State league to include all levels and ages of travel teams, most of whom have been participating in NISL, CIYSL, ICL, GIRLS, and EASA. In this single league format, clubs and teams will have a single entry point for all league play, a single set of rules and procedures for all league play, and opportunities to play in multiple league schedule formats (traditional or academy). There will be opportunities for league managed cross-over and/or friendly games, as well as direct involvement by club Directors of Coaching or other club designees, to shape and guide the league and its future. Indiana Soccer is excited about this change and is looking forward to serving Indiana Soccer members with this expanded service.
