  • IUSC Holiday/Winter Registration Now Open

    All,
    As you all know, there is a very quick turnaround from the fall to holiday seasons … so, without further ado, registration for the IUSC 2018-19 Holiday League is now open. Registration closes Monday, Oct. 29.
    We will have Open, Coed and Over-30 leagues. Team fee is $1,000. You can send along a request for which Coed division you want to be in, but please remember that IUSC has the final say on classification to stay in line with the best interest for teams as a whole. Games are 7-on-7 with two 25-minute halves and at least two women (or men) on the field at all times. Open is the same, just without the restriction on a minimum on number of men or women on the field.
    The season will start Sunday, Nov. 11 and run through Sunday, Jan. 20. Holiday windows are automatically blacked out for Nov. 20-24 and Dec. 21 to Jan. 1 … BUT, if you’d like to play games in the stretch of Dec. 26-31, let us know and we’ll use the dates if other teams are also available.
    To register, send the following to ithaca.united.soccer@gmail.com :
    * Team Name
    * League
    * Captain name and email
    * Co-captain name and email
    * Roster
    * Scheduling Limitations
    For the scheduling limitations field, please consider …

    Over-30 Schedule
    * Primary match times are 7 or 8 p.m. on Sundays (Nov. 11, Nov. 18, Nov. 25, Dec. 2, Dec. 9, Dec. 16, Jan. 6, Jan. 13 and Jan. 20)
    * Secondary match times are 7 or 8 p.m. Thursdays. There’s also a chance I’ll need to mix in a 9 p.m. game here or there depending on how many teams we get.
    Coed Schedule
    * Primary match times are 7, 8 and 9 p.m. on Thursdays, and 9 p.m. on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
    * Secondary start times would be 10 p.m. Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
    * There’s an off chance I’ll need to mix in 10 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays, depending on how many teams we get.
    * If you prefer 10 p.m. start times, let me know and I’ll be happy to get you a lot of them. But saying you’re unavailable for 10 p.m. games is not an option — everyone will likely have to play a couple of them.
    Open Schedule
    * Primary match times are Saturday evenings.
    * Secondary match times are 10pm weeknights depending on how many teams that register.

  • IUSC Fall Registration Now Open

    Captains,

    Registration for the IUSC 2018 Fall League is open through Monday, Aug. 27. We will offer Open, Coed and Over-30 leagues. Team fee is $1,000 for Coed, $500 for Over-30 and $500 for Open. You can send along a request for which Coed division you want to be in, but please remember that IUSC has the final say on classification to maintain competitive balance for the overall best interest of teams and the league as a whole.

    Open is 7-on-7 and will be played on the smaller fields at Cass Park and Union Field that are traditionally used for Over-30 — two 25-minutes halves with most games on Sundays. Coed remains on the full field under the same format, with the majority of games on Saturdays. Each team will get 10 games starting as early as Wednesday, Sept. 5 and running until Oct. 31. In all divisions, there will be some form of playoffs … though we will have to look at the team registry upon completion to figure out what the best option is.

    To register, send the following to ithaca.united.soccer@gmail.com :
    * Team Name
    * League
    * Captain name and email
    * Co-captain name and email
    * Roster
    * Scheduling Limitations

    Teams are assumed to be available for any match date listed below unless otherwise specified. As you know, we will accommodate any reasonable scheduling limitations, but you have to let us know before the schedule is written. Once the schedule is posted, it is final! We do not reschedule any games for any reason other than weather-related field concerns, so get with your teams ahead of time and figure out if there are particularly problematic dates. Some things to consider are Porchfest (Sept. 22) and Indigenous Peoples weekend/Cornell Fall Break (Oct. ).

    * Coed Schedule: Primary match times are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, with secondary start times of 6:15 and 8:15 p.m. Monday and Wednesday or 8 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
    * Over-30 Schedule: Primary match times are 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, with secondary match times of 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday and 8 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
    * Open Schedule: Primary match times are early to mid-afternoon on Sunday. Secondary start times are 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday and 8 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.

    We will continue to use Buttermilk Falls on Saturdays for Coed. Cass Park will also host Coed games on Field 2 (nearest Route 89), Field 3A (nearest the dog park) and/or Field 3B (nearest the rink) on Saturdays, and Union Field under the lights on weeknights. Open and Over-30 will be played at Cass Park in Ithaca, either on Field 1 (near the inlet), Field 5 (near Hangar) or Union Field (under the lights).

    Again, registration will end Monday, Aug. 27. My plan is to distribute PDFs of the schedule to captains by Friday, Aug 31 (with an earlier heads-up to any teams scheduled to play Sept. 5 or Sept. 6). You can find the schedule on the website soon thereafter.

  • Fall Registration

    Captains,
    Registration for the IUSC 2017 Fall League is open through Monday, Aug. 28. We will offer Open, Coed and Over-30 leagues. Team fee is $1,000 for Coed, $500 for Over-30 and $500 for Open. You can send along a request for which Coed division you want to be in, but please remember that IUSC has the final say on classification to maintain competitive balance for the overall best interest of teams and the league as a whole.

    Just as we did for the summer, Open is now 7-on-7 and will be played on the smaller fields at Cass Park and Union Field that are traditionally used for Over-30 — two 25-minutes halves with most games on Sundays. Coed remains on the full field under the same format, with the majority of games on Saturdays. Each team will get 10 games starting as early as Wednesday, Sept. 6 and running until Oct. 29. In all divisions, there will be some form of playoffs … though we will have to look at the team registry upon completion to figure out what the best option is.

    To register, send the following to ithaca.united.soccer@gmail.com :
    * Team Name
    * League
    * Captain name and email

Some things to consider are Porchfest (Sept. 24) and Columbus Day weekend/Cornell Fall Break (Oct. 6-10).

    * Coed Schedule: Primary match times are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, with secondary start times of 6:15 and 8:15 p.m. Monday and Wednesday or 8 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
    * Over-30 Schedule: Primary match times are 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, with secondary match times of 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday and 8 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
    * Open Schedule: Primary match times are early to mid-afternoon on Sunday. Secondary start times are 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday and 8 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.

    We will continue to use Buttermilk Falls on Saturdays for Coed. Cass Park will also host Coed games on Field 2 (nearest Route 89), Field 3A (nearest the dog park) and/or Field 3B (nearest the rink) on Saturdays, and Union Field under the lights on weeknights. Open and Over-30 will be played at Cass Park in Ithaca, either on Field 1 (near the inlet), Field 5 (near Hangar) or Union Field (under the lights).

  • Summer League

    Captains & Players:

    The 2017 summer league is in full swing. We will be posting the schedule and updating the standings on this website shortly. Again, we would like to commend you all for organizing your team and registering on time. Thanks to Brandon for crafting the schedule that meets every team’s scheduling requests, and to Michal for taking care of the website. A few things to note:

    1. Remember this is a recreational league for fun & fitness. Yes, it can be competitive, but it isn’t the World Cup. Let’s keep it safe, and as much as possible minimize injuries while playing the game we all love. Remember referees are humans and can or do sometimes make mistakes. This should not prevent you from enjoying the game. Let’s keep it respectful. Our league is family-friendly.

    2. Both Buttermilk & Cass Park have a “Trash-in-Trash-out” Policy, and they expect us to clean up after our games. So do take a moment to tidy up after your team’s game. Help keep the parks clean and assist us in maintaining good relations with the city & state parks where we play.

    3. If you have not already done so, bring your registration fee to your next game, or mail a check to 1583 Mecklenburg Rd, Ithaca NY 14850. Check should be made out to IUSC.

    Thanks for your attention to these matters, and most importantly thanks for signing up and playing in the IUSC league. Have a fantastic summer. See you all on the pitch.

You can send along a request for which Coed division you want to be in, but please remember that IUSC has the final say on classification to maintain competitive balance for the overall best interest of teams and the league as a whole.

    New for this year: Open is 7-on-7 and will be played on the smaller fields at Cass Park that are traditionally used for Over-30 — two 25-minutes halves with most games on Sundays. Coed remains on the full field under the same format, with the majority of games on Saturdays. Each team will get 10 games starting as early as June 3 and running until mid-August.

    To register, send the following to ithaca.united.soccer@gmail.com :

    Teams are assumed to be available for any match date listed below unless otherwise specified. As you know, I will accommodate any reasonable scheduling limitations, but you have to let me know before I write the schedule. Please consider the following …

    * June 3-4: I’m the first to admit we’re behind schedule with opening registration, so I don’t think it’s fair of me to schedule anyone for Saturday, June 3 or Sunday, June 4 unless you agree to it ahead of time. So if you’ll have your teams ready to go and can accommodate late notice (no later than June 1), please let me know.
    * Fourth of July: I will not schedule any games for any divisions from July 1-5. If your teams’ holidays extend beyond those dates, please specify.
    * Coed Schedule: Primary match times are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, with secondary start times being at 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
    * Open Schedule: Primary match times are likely to be mid-afternoon on Sundays. Secondary start times are 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.
    * Over-30 Schedule: Primary match times are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sundays and secondary match times are 6 or 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays.

  • Coed Guthrie Tournament Postponed to May 13-14

    Hi Everyone,
    I regret to inform you all that the Guthrie coed tournament scheduled for May 6-7 has now been moved to the weekend of May 13-14. This decision is due largely to the weather (heavy rains) which has rendered the fields at Cass Park unplayable for the tournament. Please notify your players that the Guthrie coed tournament will not be happening this weekend. If you haven’t already gotten back to me, do advise whether your team would still be available to play next weekend.
    Thanks for your understanding. We regret any inconvenience this decision may cause. For teams that were not going to take part this weekend, let us know if you want your team included for next week.
    We look forward to seeing you all play in the Guthrie next week.
    Regards,
