The West Islip Soccer Club was founded in 1976, as a volunteer non-profit organization. At that time there were only a handful of teams. Now we have over 1,000 families and 1,500 soccer players. We play at the Manetuck, Captree, Udall Rd, Beach St, and High School fields on Saturday and Sunday. The league continues to operate as a volunteer organization and is made up of several divisions as described below.
This is a division that has experienced intramural players looking for a higher level of competition. Players get exposure to trainers and experienced coaches who know the game. The players enjoy playing other local town clubs in their own age group. Players look to advance their skill and experience through competitive games. Interleague teams typically begin at the fifth grade level.
Commitment is key on a travel team. Travel teams work hard to advance their skills and knowledge of the game. Playing other clubs travel teams makes for fun and provides a competitive atmosphere. Travel teams typically range from under-10 years old (U-10) through under-17 years old (U-17).
Developmental teams are for the U-9 age boys and girls that desire to play soccer in a more competitive setting. The developmental teams are formed in addition to the regular intramural teams. The developmental program gives players the opportunity to play extra soccer.
