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, Higbie Center 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.

(schedules are typically released the week before the season starts)
Understanding age groups
An age group is usually expressed starting with the letter B (for Boys) or G (for Girls), followed by the letter U (for Under) and then the age. So BU6, means Boys Under 6 years of age when the season starts (typically August 1st). Age groups will be realigned to birth years starting the Fall 2016 season. This issue and questions related to it will be addressed at a general meeting in the Spring of 2016.
