The U9 Academy program is for players born in 2014, who want extra soccer in addition to their intramural soccer during the spring season.

  • You MUST be registered with the club’s intramural program to take advantage of this program.
  • Everyone who signs up is accepted into the program (as long as there’s space). However, please know that a minimum of 10 players and a maximum of 14 players on a team are required. Therefore we are unable to form a second team until at least 18 players register. We are unable to place players #15, #16, and #17 until player #18 registers. So if you see that a waiting list is active, we urge you to register for the waiting list. Once we have enough players on the waiting list before the deadline, we’ll accept those waitlisted players to form a second team.
  • Registrations after the deadline will be accepted as long as there’s space available on the rosters of established teams. New teams cannot be added once the registration deadline has passed.
  • You play teams from other clubs in the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) travel program. Half of your games will be played in West Islip; the other half in towns on Long Island.
  • Scores & standings will be kept.
  • The $195 cost (after automatic discount applies to WISC members) includes academy-style training, LIJSL team & player fees, referee fees, and paid professional coaching.
  • This program will not replace current team rosters or schedules. Intramural games are typically scheduled around the academy games to avoid conflicts.
  • This program will include extra practices and extra games.
  • ALL communication will be done through mobile app.
  • This program is for the Spring 2023 season.
  • A travel uniform must be purchased from and be in your possession before the first game of the season (details will be emailed once you’ve registered).
  • Our director of coaches Mike Reilly, who was voted New York state high school coach of the year, will be overseeing the program that he and/or his staff will be coaching this season.

Register by December 25 for the Spring Academy program. As long as we have the minimum number of players registered by then, we will be able to submit a team to the league (LIJSL). If we do not have the minimum number of players registered to submit a team, we will not be able to submit a team past our registration deadline.

If you did not participate during the Fall, you must submit a birth certificate to the travel coordinator, NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 25. The Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) will not let you play without submitting this birth certificate. No exceptions. If you participated during the fall, you do not need to resubmit your birth certificate, since your birth date has already been verified by LIJSL.
