The ISC is excited to offer our 4th Year of INDOOR LEAGUE PLAY FOR OUR ISC U15 Boys and Freshmen U16 boys and U15-U19 Girls
Session II for the ISC BAGIL LEAGUE WILL START ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 2017
REGISTRATION FOR SESSION 2 opened up on Monday, January 9, 2017
REGISTRATION FOR SESSION II is Closed.
What is the BAGIL?
The ISC BAGIL is in its 4th year. THE BAGIL combines U15 boys and U16 boys that are freshmen with all of the U15-U19 girls on mixed teams for 2 sessions of indoor soccer each winter. (Please note that starting this year, all U16 boys that are freshmen will also play in the BAGIL. Due to the birth year changes, many U16 boys are now freshmen and are best placed in this league and not the men's league.) All games will be played at the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Center, known as the HTRC. The facility address is 2820 Prairie Meadow Drive, Iowa City, Iowa.
PLEASE NOTE that All of the games will be played in the older turf area, named the "HAWKEYE TURF." Players are NOT allowed to wear cleats on this surface.
How does the league work?
The league is set up so that all participants sign up as individuals. Participants are placed on a team with other players and they will remain on the same team for the entire session. The ISC Coaching Staff will select current ISC players to be captains and these captains will hold a draft with the supervision of the ISC Director to form the teams for the session.
For Session II of 2017, all players will be guaranteed 9 indoor games with the team that they are assigned to play with for the session. In addition, the ISC coaching staff will ensure that all players on each team will play as close to half of each game as possible.
Who is eligible for the league?
Participants must be a registered ISC "POPPI" player or an ISC Advanced Year Round Player to compete in the league. Players that are ISC "POP" players are not eligible to play in the league. Players from other clubs are not allowed to participate in the ISC BAGIL League.
All players who enter the draft must meet their practice requirements each week to be eligible to play in the league games on the weekend.
Format of League-5v5 Indoor Soccer
5v5 Indoor Soccer-No Walls- (4v4 + Keepers with a futsal ball) Games are played on an excellent turf field at the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Center on the facility called the HAWKEYE TURF. Players are NOT allowed to wear cleats on this surface. Since there are no walls, when the ball is played out of bounds, we will play kick-ins for restarts.
We will use a futsal ball, but we will not use the official futsal rules for play.
The field space will be 25 yards wide by 40 yards long. With 4 field players on each team and a goalie for each team, the space allows for good soccer to be played by the teams.
Who coaches the teams?
The ISC staff will be present for each team to coach the games.
When is the League Offered?
Session I runs from November 2016 through early January 2017.
Session II runs from January 2017 through March 2017.

Saturday, March 4, 2017 (Time range from 6:10 PM-Midnight)
If I sign up for the league, do I need to make all 9 games?
No. Your team will have subs and the team only needs 5 to play at one time. You are allowed to miss some games if you have conflicts.
Cost for the League: $95 Per Player
$95: for 9 League Games and a league jersey.
Information on Rosters:
The maximum roster per team is 9 players. We will NOT place more than 9 players on each team. We will form 8 teams.
Our coaches will guarantee that you play half of each match if everyone on your team is in attendance for all games.
Duration of each match:
45 minutes with a running clock-no half time.
We will have 8 teams for Session II.
Each team will play the other 7 teams in the league and will also play 2 of the teams a second time.
Once everyone has completed 9 games, we will take the top 4 teams in the league and have the #1 team in the standings play the #2 team in the standings for first place and the #3 team will play the #4 team for 3rd place. As a result, the top 4 teams in the league will have a 10th game, whereas the rest of the teams will only play 9 games.
Each player on the top 2 teams will receive a winner's long sleeve shirt.
Minimum Players Required for Each game
Your team must have 5 players dressed and ready to play with shinguards on and jerseys on by the time the referee blows the whistle to start the game if you want to avoid a forfeit. We take this rule very seriously as this is a serious league meant for competitive players. Given the high cost of the league, we want teams to play games against opponents that are dedicated and opponents who respect the league. If you do not start the game with five players that are listed on your roster, your team will forfeit the game.
Forfeit questions came up many times last session. All players need to be informed of this rule. We will not make exceptions to the rule. There is no fair way of knowing how late is too late to arrive and allow the game to be played without declaring a forfeit. Therefore, we have made things clear and simple for the players. As soon as the whistle blows to start of the game, your team must have 5 players dressed and ready to play, and your five players must be on the field if you want to avoid a forfeit.
Please note that if you start the game with five players but at some time during the match you play with with less than 5 players due to an injury, the game will not be counted as a forfeit as long as the injured player is able to return to the match and play for at least half of the match.
If your team forfeits a game, the game is recorded as an 0-8 Loss for the forfeiting team.
