Northwest Iowa Soccer Club

2016 Fall Soccer - Now Underway

Northwest Iowa Soccer League

NWISL has been formed by a group of communities in Northwest Iowa that want to play recreational level soccer at the U12 and U14 levels.

Northwest Iowa Soccer Club

Galaxy competitive soccer was formed in 2006 for players who need more than recreational soccer and want to take their game to the next level.

Northwest Iowa Soccer Club

Welcome to the Galaxy Cup

More than just a tournament, the Galaxy Cup shows youth soccer at the highest level. That’s why we, as organizers, are committed to quality above all else-Quality Competition, Quality Fields, Quality Veteran Tournament Management, and Quality Customer Service. We will honor this commitment by providing an unrivaled experience to every participant in the Galaxy Cup. Our vow is successes in our "four" quality commitments.

USA Soccer Changes

Parents & Coaches,

US Soccer is making a few changes that will put our program more in line with how the rest of the world organizes and manages their soccer programs.

These new coaching initiatives take place August 1, 2016 and can be split into two major categories:

Birth Year Registration

US Soccer has removed the policy of age gropus being decided based on a birth date before Aug 1st or after Aug 1st. A player's age group will now be determined based solely on their birth year.


When registering, note that your child needs to have been born in 2012 to play this fall 2016 and next spring 2017 season in our youngest U6 age group.

NWISC will be offering a Recreational program through 8th grade which will likely be a combined U13-U15 age group (12,13,14 year olds who are in 7th & 8th grade).

The new age group registration is based on calendar year. The new cut-off dates will be January 1 through December 31 of any given year. This is consistent with the other 208 FIFA countries that register youth players by their year of birth. Players born between January 1 and December 31 in a year will now play on the same team — unless a player is “playing up” in an older age group.

Thank You to our Volunteer Coaches

Coaches,

We know it goes without saying the importance of the role you play for our kids and our organization. We thank you for answering the call to volunteer to coach soccer to our youth. We thank you for stepping forward when many stepped back. We thank you for putting aside your job and family, and investing your personal time to coach our kids so that they can experience that team spirit and the thrill of playing the game.

We thank you for creating the laughter and joy we hear on a Saturday morning when 350 kids converge onto our painted grass fields just to kick a ball around so they can hear their parents cheer them on and make them feel proud of them of what they have learned from you…coach.

Without you that would could not happen, and Spencer would have another 30 acres of corn and a community without the game.
