The Spring 2020 season has been cancelled.
Earlier today we received the unfortunate news that Indiana Soccer has announced cancellations of all league play and all Cups for the remainder of the 2019-2020 season.
All divisions of Indiana Soccer have been cancelled for all age groups.
State Cup, Presidents Cup and the Challenge Cup have been cancelled.
All additional sanctioned activities have been cancelled in alignment with Governor Holcomb's shelter in place and/or social distancing directives.
Due to the cancellation of the spring season refunds will be provided to our players/families. There are many details to be worked out to determine how much refunds will be and exactly how to distribute. We ask that you please have patience as we figure this out and we'll do our best to process the information quickly for our families.

***UPDATE*** 4/1/2020, 11:05 am
All Invaders FC activities have now been suspended until May 1st, 2020. This decision was made to be in alignment with most of our local school districts and to ensure we are doing our part to help flatten the curve. There will be more info to come in the coming days.
***UPDATE*** 3/19/2020, 1:10 pm
The 3/13/2020 update announced the suspension of league and cup activities and the strong recommendation to suspend soccer practices and play through April 2nd. The subsequent need for prolonged social distancing prompts Indiana Soccer to extend this suspension through April 15, 2020. Your state office staff remains available via email or phone as they continue working remotely. Additional updates will be distributed should more information become available.
For those who had games scheduled in this time period (up to and including 4/15/2020), your games have been postponed. The ISL season will be extended through the end of June at this time.

***UPDATE*** 3/12/2020, 8:15 pm
Indiana Soccer's ISL, Select League and cup activity is suspended immediately through April 2nd and Indiana Soccer strongly recommends that all member clubs suspend soccer practice and play immediately through April 2nd.

Dear Invaders Families,
Due to the uncertain health risks associated with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Indiana Invaders FC are suspending all club activities effective immediately until at least April 2nd. This includes all training, games and any additional Invaders programs.
We are closely monitoring the soccer landscape and will make every effort to provide up to date information moving forward.

To all teams,
ISL/Select schedule status & Cup Self-scheduled games -in response to the current Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic (3/12/2020):
All ISL games are proceeding as scheduled:
A review of current recommendations by the CDC and other government medical professionals suggest that we should not attend large, indoor assemblies, and that we should avoid crowding when possible. Fortunately, ISL games are played outdoor with a modest number of people in attendance which, does not conflict with the CDC's current recommendations. However, ISL recommends that attendees avoid crowding while at the game. Choose to spread out on the sidelines and remain 3 or more feet away from others. Elect to avoid crowded pre and post-game assemblies during these times of elevated transmission concern. Indiana Soccer, and ISL will monitor the CDC and other high-level medical professionals' recommendations and adjust accordingly.
Indiana Soccer strongly recommends that the pre-game, center-of-the-field assembly and the post-game congratulatory exchange continue, without the conventional handshake until further notice. This omission of handshaking extends to referees, coaches, managers and parents until further notice.
Indiana Soccer continues to urge the Indiana Soccer family to remain diligent in protecting themselves and their immediate families from COVID-19 infection.
