The Northern Illinois Soccer League (NISL) was founded in 1975, and has since become one of the largest and most competitive Youth Soccer Leagues in the United States. With over 17,000 players on 1,300 teams in more than 120 Chicago Metropolitan communities, the NISL, as a member of US Club Soccer and the US Soccer Federation, is authorized to carry out registration of Amateur Youth & Senior Clubs and Programs.
All NISL schedules are completed and ready for viewing , on-line.
Each day in our nation, hundreds of thousands of young athletes head out to fields, ice and gymnasiums to practice and compete in a wide variety of sports. There’s no doubt that these sports are a great way for kids and teens to stay healthy, as well as learn important leadership and team-building skills. But medical researchers have discovered young athletes, especially kids and teens, often don’t recognize their own limitations; especially when they have a concussion.
Once a player signs a registration form, the player is bound to that specific Club for the duration of the Soccer Playing Year (August 1st - July 31st). If, at any time between December, January or February, a competitive player requests to transfer to another Club, that player must complete and submit a Player Request Transfer Form to the NISL Administrative Office.
