ISC Men's Indoor Soccer League

ISC Men's League is Open to Adult Men and Youth Players 16U-19U (Note all 16U players must be sophomores.)
What is the ISC Men’s Indoor Soccer League?
  • The ISC Men’s Indoor Soccer league is a professionally administered indoor league that includes the area’s best youth (players aged 16U-19U) and adult players.
  • Our league has a great history in Iowa City as we enter our 17th year running this league.  Lots of great ISC players and terrific adult players have played in this league.  This is the league for the best adult players in Iowa City.
  • 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.
  • Please download the ISC Men’s League Rules.
Why Sign up for the ISC Men’s Indoor League?

The ISC Men’s Open indoor league offers a very competitive league structure and all games are played on an indoor turf field (not on a gym floor). The league is professionally run and balances the needs of both the top 16U-19U elite club players and adult players in Iowa City.  For over 16 years the league has maintained a great balance between high level youth players who fully understand that they are youth players privileged to play in a Men’s league, and adult players who benefit from playing against young players reaching their prime.

  • League champions receive winner’s shirts.
LEAGUE SCHEDULE

ADULT PLAYER INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM REGISTRATION
  • Each adult player registers on their own.  They must register online and pay the fee by using the “Adult Player” registration link.
  • A team captain or coach must also register your team by contacting the league director and identifying which 11 registered players should be assigned to your team. To register your team, please submit your team roster via e-mail to  jon.cook@iowasoccerclub.com.
  • Each team must have 11 players registered AND PAID in full by the registration deadline (no exceptions). Team registration is the responsibility of your team captain/coach.
  • We do not allow teams to register more than 11 players, and players cannot share a roster spot.
  • Note: If you are interested in joining the league, but do not have a full team, please contact the league director and we will attempt to match you with players in a similar situation. There are no guarantees, however, that we will have room for you in the league.
16U-19U  PLAYER REGISTRATION
  • Each player must register online and pay the fee by using the “High School Player’ registration link. All 16U players that are sophomores and all 17U-19U players, register as high school players.
  • Players that receive financial assistance from the ISC are allowed to register under the “FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE” option and that fee is $35 per player per session.
  • All high school registered players will be placed in a pool of players for the annual league draft.  The league director will select team captains, and those captains will then select the teams from the players registered at the annual draft.
  • ISC POPPI players are allowed to enter the draft, but ISC POP players are NOT. 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.
  • Non ISC high school players that would like to participate in the league are welcome to form their own teams, but they will not be included in the draft with the ISC players.
  • While each high school team has a team captain, players that are playing in the league through the draft will be coached by the ISC staff coaches for most games and follow our guidelines for the games.
SCHEDULE RELEASE – SESSION 1
  • High school player registration and payment deadline for session 1 -Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at midnight.
  • Adult player registration and payment deadline for session 1-Thursday, October 27, 2022 at midnight.
  • Schedules released for the first weekend of play: Thursday, October 27, 2022.
  • Teams should assume that they will have a game on Saturday, October 29, 2022 and possibly on Sunday, October 30, 2022.
METHOD OF PAYMENT

We only offer one method of payment.  Each individual player must register online and pay their full fee with a credit card at the time of registration in order to be eligible to play for your team.  This payment option is unique in that we actually try to make each person responsible for their own fees.  We do it this way so that one person, for example a coach or team captain, is not burdened with having to pay the team entry fee for all players.
