PLAYER PROFILE  

  • Highly motivated, passionate, and ambitious 
  • Demonstrate higher levels of mastery of the key qualities of a player (as outlined by US Soccer) 
  • Ability to read/understand the game and technical proficiency are more important than being able to physically/athletically dominate due to earlier physical maturation. We would rather take a smaller, temporarily "less effective" player who shows long-term potential than one who has average or below-average technique and soccer IQ but who temporarily dominates due to his/her size and athleticism.

NISL UPDATE FALL 2020

Northern Illinois Soccer League is adhering to the Governor's Office guidance specifying no interclub competition.  

As an essential convenience for clubs in recognition of pandemic-related restrictions and enrollment/team formation/tuition collection uncertainty, NISL has designed 2020-21 registration so clubs have player insurance and, when needed, official rosters, for practices, camps, intraclub scrimmages, etc. at an advantageously lower cost than full team registration.  Beneficially, Spring 2020 team registration credits may be used to offset these 2020-21 player registration fees.
