IUSC Fall League Registration

A big thank you to all the teams/players who participated in the just ended summer league. The summer league, as you all must have heard, went very well. No one’s health or safety was compromised. The heath and safety of all players remain our top priority. We expect the same for the Fall League.

And now, the moment you’ve been asking for….

Fall League Registration

Registration for the IUSC 2020 Fall League is open through Friday Sept. 4. 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. 9 and running until Nov. 7. 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 ithacasoccerleague@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.

* 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 Fields 1 & 2 (under the lights).
