    History

    The Northern Illinois Soccer League / N.I.S.L. was founded in 1975 as a competitive youth soccer league for Boys and Girls ages U8 through U19.

    It provides the day-to-day organizational structure for more than 1,000 teams in over 97 Chicago area communities.

    It is one of the largest youth soccer leagues in the state of Illinois.

    Our Mission

    Our mission is that all soccer related decisions should be made with the player in mind. We are interested in the development of youth soccer, not the politics. Our office staff consists of players and coaches that believe in creating and maintaining a league that is focused on the development of the players at various levels and providing a competitive and equal playing field. We believe the NISL should be governed by simple administrative procedures which provide players, teams and clubs flexibility in the player development process. The NISL will create, develop, and foster the growth of club and community soccer programs throughout the Chicago Metropolitan Area and surrounding states.

    Our Vision

    NISL will provide a fun, safe and supportive environment, which nurtures and guides children to develop their talents, knowledge and appreciation for the game of soccer.

    NISL will provide an equal opportunity to all soccer players, coaches, trainers, managers, administrators and officials to participate in youth soccer competitions.

    NISL will provide an equal opportunity to all soccer players to participate in a competitive soccer environment that encourages good sportsmanship, principles of fair play, and the building of good character.

    NISL will provide leagues and divisions so all soccer players, etc. can reach their highest level of competition.

    League Managment

    The NISL is owned and operated by Northern Independent Soccer League. Participation in the NISL is governed by the rules adopted by the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) and the United States Soccer Federation (US Soccer), except where modified below.
    All competition in leagues/divisions affiliated with the NISL is governed by regulations approved by the NISL and the league office.

    Each week as I’ve gone out to do errands and buy groceries while working at the NISL, I’ve always noticed that no matter where I go there are always cars with stickers in their back windows for clubs that are in the league. Where I live in Sugar Grove I always notice the hundreds upon hundreds of Strikers Fox Valley, TCSA, and other club insignias from the local clubs greeting me as I make my way around town. As I’ve...
