U9 Academy Spring 2020

The U9 Academy program is for players born in 2011, who want extra soccer in addition to their intramural soccer during the spring season.
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 (as long as there's space). However, please know that LIJSL requires a minimum of 9 players and a maximum of 14 players on a team. Therefore we are unable to form a second team until at least 18 players register. We are unable to place player #15, #16, and #17 until player #18 registers. Therefore we will have a waitlist until at least 4 players are on that waitlist. That's when we'll accept them and create a second team.

Players can register after the deadline, but only if there's space left, Note that a late fee will be added to the order.
  • 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 on Long Island. 
  • Scores & standings will be kept. 
  • The $195 cost (after promo code emailed to eligible WISC members) includes academy style training, LIJSL team & player fees, referee fees, and paid professional coaching.
  • This program will not replace current team rosters or schedules. Intramural games are typically scheduled around the academy games to avoid conflicts.
  • This program will include extra practices and extra games. 
  • ALL communication will be done through email.
  • This program is for the Spring 2020 season.
  • Players who did not participate in the Fall program will need to buy a blue travel jersey
  • Registration deadline: Dec 31
Our director of coaches Mike Reilly, who was voted New York state high school coach of the year, will be overseeing the program that he and/or his staff will be coaching this spring.

Register Now
Register by December 31 for the Spring Academy program. As long as we have the minimum number of players registered by then, we will be able to submit a team to the league (LIJSL). If we do not have the minimum number of players registered to submit a team, we will not be able to submit a team past our registration deadline.

If you did not participate during the Fall, you must submit a birth certificate to the travel coordinator, NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 31. The Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) will not let you play without submitting this birth certificate. No exceptions. If you participated during the fall, you do not need to resubmit your birth certificate, since your birth date has already been verified by LIJSL.
