2008 Academy for U9 Players

posted May 14, 2016, 2:02 PM by Club Administrator   [ updated Jun 23, 2016, 12:27 AM by West Islip Soccer ]

Intramural players born in 2008 have the option to sign up online (through the Player Registration link in the left column) for our academy program which will participate in the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL).

This will be a program for 2008 intramural players who want extra soccer. You MUST be registered with the club's intramural program to take advantage of this program. Everyone who signs up is accepted into the program. You play teams from other clubs in the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) travel program. Half of your games will be played in West Islip; the other half in towns across Suffolk county. Scores & standings will be kept. 

The cost is $135 (which includes academy style training, LIJSL team & player fees, and paid professional coaching). 

This program will not replace current intramural team rosters or schedules. This program will include extra practices and extra games.

ALL communication will be done through email.

An informational meeting was held on Wednesday, June 21 at 8:00 PM at the Higbie Center (90 Higbie Ln). We highly recommend that parents of interested players attend this meeting, as the meeting addresses how this program is different from the intramural program, and addresses expectations.So it's important that at least 1 parent attends. If you missed the meeting you can still register your child before June 30.

The schedule can be found at lijsoccer.com (make sure you select the correct age group as the division, then click on the schedule tab).

Register online for this program

During registration you'll be required to upload a picture of your child. The picture will be used on the player pass that the referee checks before each game to make sure your child is permitted to play in the game.

A copy of your child's birth certificate must be emailed to academy@westislipsoccer.com

For questions, contact Craig Miller at academy@westislipsoccer.com or 291-3187

New Age Groups

posted Apr 6, 2016, 11:13 AM by West Islip Soccer   [ updated Aug 11, 2016, 11:27 AM ]

The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) has changed age group cut offs for all soccer clubs nationwide. 
 
Starting with the fall 2016 season all age groups will be arranged based on children born January 1 through December 31.
 
This means that most teams will now have many more children playing with classmates.

Changing to birth year registration doesn’t eliminate relative age effect, because whenever there is a defined age range, someone will be the oldest and someone will be the youngest.

Reasoning
At the present time, too much emphasis placed on the result of the game.
The priority should be to develop skills.
Long-term development of players is the top priority.
  • Kids under the age of 12 don’t win World Cups so we should not treat them like adults or professional players
  • Players need to be put in the best possible environment to succeed
  • There are no shortcuts
  • Success requires a long-term approach and commitment
Objectives
The focus moves away from the team and onto the individual player.
  • Development and winning don’t have to happen independently from one another
  • Our misguided desire to win at all costs at the youth levels often comes at the expense of individual player development
All travel tryouts for next Fall will have birth date eligibility listed for each age group and/or travel teams on our website and a club wide notification will be made.
 
Questions regarding these changes can be addressed at the clubs general meetings.
 
Travel coaches should be able to answer questions regarding their existing travel teams as the new changes were explained at a coaches meeting.
