Iowa Soccer Championship Series (ISCS)
The Iowa Soccer Championship Series (ISCS) is considered the highest level of youth competition in the state and is the first step taken in US Youth Soccer's National Championship Series. The purpose of the Tournament is to identify the teams in each age division that will represent Iowa at the US Youth Soccer Region 2 Championships and President's Cup.
In Iowa, the ISCS is conducted annually on dates and at sites determined by Iowa Soccer. 15U through 19U age groups hold their competition in the Fall. 13U and 14U age groups hold their competition the following Spring preceding the Midwest Region 2 Championships held in June.
The 2019 Fall ISCS will be held over 3 weekends:
• October 12-13 and 19-20 – Group Play at the James W. Cownie Soccer Complex
• October 26-27 – State Cup and President's Cup Championships at the James W. Cownie Soccer Complex
Resources needed by referees who will be officiating the Championship Series this Fall are located in Box in an ISCS folder. The information there includes:
• 2019-2020 IFAB Laws of the Game (LOTG) including Practical Guidelines for Referees
• Rules of Competition
• Report Codes for Cautionable and Sending-Off Offenses
• 4th Official Game Log

Refresher training on the revisions to the IFAB Laws of the Game for 2019-20 is available in Brainshark at 2019-2020 Referee Recertification – Supplemental. 50 review questions are also embedded in the module.
