ISC LIGHTNING BAGIL 9U-10U Indoor Soccer League

What is The ISC LIGHTNING BAGIL Indoor League?
  • The ISC LIGHTNING BAGIL coed league is an indoor soccer league for 9U-10U boys and girls.  Players that participate in the ISC LIGHTNING BAGIL INDOOR SOCCER LEAGUE do not need to be registered in the Friday night Winter Lightning practice program.  The program is open to any 9U-10U kids who want to play in a fun indoor soccer league for players at the beginner or intermediate level.
  • Players in the ISC’s Advanced Year-Round program are not allowed to participate in the Lightning league unless we have open spots after registration has concluded.  The purpose of the league is to offer a fun league for players with less competitive experience.
  • The league is well suited for players that want a lower level of commitment compared to the ISC year-round players.
  • Two sessions of indoor play are offered each Winter and all games will be played at the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Center (HTRC).
  • HTRC Address –  2820 Prairie Meadow Drive, Iowa City, Iowa.
  • 2021-2022 ISC COVID INDOOR Protocol Updates (UPDATED ON OCTOVBER 30, 2021) :  1) Spectators are allowed in the HTRC to watch all ISC Indoor league games.  The ISC COVID ADVISORY group strongly recommends that spectators wear masks for the safety of all players, parents, and participants.  The participants, soccer players, are not required to wear masks either while playing or sitting on the sidelines. However, the ISC COVID advisory group has stated that if the COVID positivity rate changes in Johnson County, their recommendations on mask wearing for participants and coaches may change. 
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 form all teams.
