Iowa Soccer League (ISL)


The Iowa Soccer League (ISL) is a critical part of the Iowa Soccer player development pathway and competitions pathway. The ISL was created to serve the developmental needs of the youth soccer players in Iowa and is unique in that it is guided by one overarching focus – player development. The ISL strives to be in full alignment with the U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiatives.

WEATHER RELATED RESCHEDULES:  In the event of weather, field closures, or an "act of god" the league director will work with clubs and verify the dates, locations, and matches that will be cancelled.  These matches may be rescheduled at any time during the season using the request form below.

  1. Team Officials must contact each other and agree upon a date and time
  2. The reschedule form must be completed by one of the team officials
  3. Required 4-day minimum notice on all weather related reschedules


In the event matches are unable to be rescheduled those matches will be recorded as not played and teams will be refunded after the conclusion of the season.


DIRECTOR APPROVED RESCHEDULES:  Building the ISL State League schedule can be a daunting task, we understand schedules are never perfect.  In the case both directors agree to a schedule change the league will approve of the request.

  1. The RESCHEDULE FORM must be completed by the team official who proposed the request.
    • A $15.00 Admin Fee will be processed in the case the change request is filed with less than 5 days notice.  Late notice changes often result in conflicts for assignors/referees and fields therefore we ask for a minimum of 7 day notice when possible.


FORFEITS:  Teams not playing matches as scheduled will be subject to a $400 forfeit fine and possible suspension from the league.  Failure to adhere to this policy will render the offending team responsible for all referee fees and match expenses for the game.
