Recognizing Players / Coaches
The coaches and players in ICSL make-up a large "family." We spend many hours each weekend together and sometimes we argue like "family" and other times we get a chance to refocus on the real reason we are doing this....the kids. Whenever a part of the "family" hurts we all understand that it could be one of our own kids or players and we empathize with the parents and teammates. Showing our appreciation for them as individuals is a simple gesture we support. 

The league is open to that and at the same time wants to ensure that any extra armbands, wristbands or other tokens do not cause a potential safety issue on the field. We want to ensure that we balance Safety with the desire to recognize that person.

As an example, we have investigated the wearing of "soft" "tennis-type" wristbands and have determined that they are appropriate for our league. Rubber wristbands are not allowed as they have a greater chance of causing pain to the players. We also follow the IHSA and IYSA rules and guidelines and we are aligned with them in this simple recognition. If the team wishes to have a blanket or any other celebration of an individual, please contact Beth Doran and we will make every attempt to grant those wishes and to recognize that individual in the appropriate manner.

Each uniform must contain a number printed on the back of the jersey. There may be no duplicate numbers per team.   It can be printed T-Shirts to full uniforms, including socks, jersey, shorts.  All players must wear approved cleats, shin guards and conform to the safety guidelines as described in the Safety Document.
Sponsors can provide financial support to individual teams; ICSL is not currently set-up to handle donations. 
Rescheduling Games
Please see Rules document for additional information.  Simply put, rescheduled games are the responsibility of the coach, who must contact the opposing coach, the board members, and the Referee Assigner. This must be done by noon on the Wednesday prior to the scheduled game in order to avoid being charged additional referee fees. ICSL mandates that all games be officiated by patched referees so coordination between coaches, the game scheduler (Chad), and the Referee Assigner (Scott) is essential. Teams are responsible for referees fees regardless of the number of players fielded if an issue arises after noon on Wednesday. If a team cannot field a complete team, the coaches may agree to 1) play fewer players for the game, 2) recruit players rostered on another ICSL team one age bracket below their own team, or 3) forfeit the game but play a "friendly" match with those in attendance. Rescheduling games is difficult so please take the opportunity to work out an alternative to rescheduling if at all possible. The point is to let the kids play.
If ICSL has to reschedule a game due to weather, field conflicts, referee availability, etc. then league directors will alert the community coordinators/coaches to the adjusted schedules. Cancellations and postponement information will be issued through email (GotSoccer), be posted on the ICSL website, and on the ICSL Facebook page.
