Dear Indiana Invaders families,
This message comes to you all with a heavy heart. I have notified the state that Invaders will hold no tryouts for the Fall of 2021.
Over the past 24 years, it has been the honor and pleasure for Indiana Invaders to serve the community. The club has accomplished some tremendous feats on and off the soccer field, those will not be forgotten. We carried out our mission, to give kids an opportunity to play soccer, regardless of socioeconomic background. Many people stepped up over the years to make this mission a reality, to you all, we cannot thank you enough. A special thanks to Mamba, who has been a member of the Invaders family as a player, coach, coaching director and much more. Also, great gratitude to Troy Cadotte, who for the past two years has taken over the role of board president and director of operations.
We leave the door open for the future as we are in good standing with the State and other associations.
I am forever grateful to the Invaders families That represented the club with great pride, and we wish you all well in your future endeavors.
All the best,
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.
We are working on additional opportunities for our players once the Stay at Home orders are lifted. We will communicate additional details once they have been finalized.

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.
