If you are arriving on this page for the first time, please read all information. It might save you a lot of frustration down the road.
Please make sure you are registering for the correct program. Your child will not be registered until payment is received in full.
A soccer season actually consists of two seasons combined: fall & spring season.
The fall season typically starts the first weekend after Labor Day and runs through mid November.
The spring season typically starts the weekend around St Patrick's Day and runs through mid May.
Although you can register a child at any time, intramural and interleague teams are formed during the summer. The number of coaches needed for each age group is determined based on the players registered at that time. Therefore it's important to register early enough, so the ratio of players per coach is reasonable. You can see how important our volunteer coaches are to make this all happen. Please consider being a coach or assistant coach. If necessary, coaches will be recruited via telelphone calls. Players in intramural age groups U7-U9/10 are drafted by coaches. Registrations after May 31st will be assessed a $15 late fee, and those registrations will be placed on a waiting list and assigned to teams as spots open up.
To register online please follow the steps below:
(To pay by check you must come to one of our in-person registration events; dates are announced on our website).
- Log onto your pre-existing account (by clicking the big red button on the top of this page) or, if this is your first time using our online registration system, you will need to create an account first. Your account will consist of a username (your email address) and password (pick one you'll remember). The email address you provide will be used to communicate with you, so use an email address you check regularly.
- Create profiles for parents and players with all information.
- If you are interested in volunteering to coach, please check the appropriate box (important, see paragraph above).
- Register each of your children for the appropriate program. You can ONLY register your OWN children; not somebody else's. Each family requires their own account. In order to be eligible for any family discounts, ALL CHILDREN MUST BE REGISTERED ON THE SAME ORDER AT THE SAME TIME. If you are not already on a travel team, you should register for the Interleague program (or Intramural program if a U10 player for the upcoming season). If your child is accepted on a travel team, your child will be transferred to that team. You will be responsible for the balance owed for travel registration. You can also wait to register your travel aged child until the end of June when travel registration opens. Just remember that the system will only automatically calculate the discount if you register 3 or more players at the same time, and not at a later date.
- Checkout your order and pay by Visa, Mastercard or American Express. Please note that if payment is not received, your child will not be eligible to play and will not be placed on a team. Travel players: if payment is not received, a player pass will not be issued, regardless if your child is accepted on a travel team after a tryout. The referee will not permit players without a player pass to play.
- You will receive an email confirmation that your order has been completed.
If you have any problems registering your child, please contact the registrar for the appropriate program. Contact information can be found on the bottom in the left column.
West Islip Soccer Club offers recreational and competitive soccer for all players ages 4 - 25. Players will play in one of four divisions: Intramural (a.k.a. in-house), Interleague (a.k.a. intertown), Travel or High Flyers. All players registered for the Intramural and Interleague programs will be placed on a team. Travel players are required to try out for the teams in their respective age groups. Travel tryouts take place in June of each year. Tryout information can be found on the club's website and all eligible players will receive the necessary information from the coach of the team they're selected to play for. If you are not already on a travel team, you should register for the Interleague or Intramural program. If your child is accepted on a travel team, your child will be transferred to that team automatically. You will be responsible for the balance owed for travel registration.
Annual registration for the Fall 2014 season & Spring 2015 season starts on March 1st.
Intramural & Interleague Program
IMPORTANT: New U5 players (born 8/1/09-7/31/10) & U6 players (born 8/1/08-7/31/09 can only register during in-person registration (therefore not online). In-person registration dates can be found on our club website.
Children born on or before July 31, 2009 are eligible to play during the Fall 2013 - Spring 2014 season.
Children born on or before July 31, 2010 are eligible to play during the Fall 2014 - Spring 2015 season.
U5 through U10 play intramural ("in-house"); U11 and older play interleague ("inter-town"). At U10 players may choose to "tryout" for a travel team (see Travel Program below).
More info on age groups and divisions can be found here.
Late Fee: $15 per family (after May 31st).
If you register online before the deadline, you should expect a phone call from a coach by the 3rd week of August. If you register online after May 31st, please keep in mind that all board members are volunteers, have busy lives, and often go on vacation during the summer months. The information you provide here will still require human intervention, and by multiple people (registrar, age group coordinator, coach, etc.), before your child is assigned to a team. Schedules are usually posted the week prior to the start of the season. Therefore we appreciate your patience and understanding.

- FORWARD your registration order receipt email, and
- ATTACH a scanned copy of your child's birth certificate
via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or

Children born or or before July 31, 2004 (U10 and older) who have been selected after the team's tryout are eligible to play in the travel program for the Fall 2013 - Spring 2014 season.
Children born or or before July 31, 2005 (U10 and older) who have been selected after the team's tryout are eligible to play in the travel program for the Fall 2014 - Spring 2015 season.
Travel players have to select their specific team when registering. Please be sure to register for the team your child was selected on. If you have any questions about registering for a travel team, please contact your travel team coach.
IMPORTANT: Only register for the travel program if you have tried out for a team,
and have been instructed by the coach to register for the travel program.
If you are not already on a travel team, you should register for the Interleague program (or Intramural program if a U10 player for the upcoming season). If your child is accepted on a travel team, your child will be transferred to that team. You will be responsible for the balance owed for travel registration.
Travel registration closed on July 3, 2013 and will reopen again in late June 2014.
An informational meeting is usually held before U10 travel tryouts. It's HIGHLY recommended that you attend this meeting, as the program is different from the intramural program.
Any issues with travel registration please contact the travel coordinator: Joe Farrell
The West Islip Soccer Club is pleased to provide a program for children with Special Needs. Many children with physical or mental disabilities will now have the opportunity to participate in soccer in a program that will enable them to play and progress at their own level. The program is designed for any children in the West Islip or neighboring communities with Special Needs.
The goals of the program are for the children to:
- Have fun playing soccer
- Understand the fundamentals of the game
- Learn teamwork and fair play
We play each week for approximately 1 hour. Each session consists of two parts. The first half hour is spent conducting drills and mini games to teach the various soccer skills such as kicking, passing and shooting, as well as promoting teamwork by working with other children. The second half hour is a game/scrimmage. We split the children up each week based on age and ability and play a non-competitive game. There is no score kept and every team wins.
There will be a Fall and Spring season that will follow the intramural season. We also plan to participate in a tournament each season with clubs from other towns on Long Island with similar programs. This also is a non-competitive tournament that will enable the children to experience playing against other teams.
Volunteers: The success of the program has been the participation of volunteers to help throughout the session. If you are in High School, or know someone who is, who would be willing to come down and help out these very special kids, please give us a call. Our Soccer Buddies program help the children in a variety of ways, from assisting with the drills to helping individual players with a particular skill. For those seeking community service opportunities, a letter of accreditation will be provided.
Developmental teams are for the U-9 age boys and girls that desire to play soccer in a more competitive setting. The developmental teams are formed in addition to the regular intramural teams. The developmental program gives players the opportunity to play extra soccer.
Intramural Off Season
During the weekends and weeks that there are no games scheduled, there's sometimes an opportunity to participate in a tournament, winter indoor league, or summer league. These are all extra programs. If your child is interested in playing during off season events, you will need to sign up your child for this. By signing up, you indicate INTENT to play these events. Based on the number of signups for a certain age group, the coaches for that age group will determine whether or not to sign up a team (or a few teams). Usually the coordinator for that off season program will let you know what events are available during that time frame. You can then indicate whether or not your child is available to play in that event.
Your cost will depend on the entrance fee for that event and the number of players participating in the event.
There are typically 3 signups throughout the year for this: Fall (Columbus Day weekend tournament), Winter (indoor league, indoor gym, futsal and/or turf tournaments), and Spring/Summer (spring tournaments, Father's Day tournament, summer league). Not all age groups will participate in a summer league. It's usually decided by the coaches who volunteer for these events and will depend on the interest in these events. Signing up for off season soccer, in effect puts you on the email list, so you'll be asked if you're interested in upcoming events for your age group.
Overall, the intramural off season tournaments/leagues are for those players who want to continue playing while there aren't any league games scheduled. It's extra soccer. These intramural off season events are available to U7 through U9 players.
