Iberia Soccer Association Division 1 (D1) Program
D1 Benefits To create an option for our advanced players who want to play tournaments and friendlies against top competition from across the state. To develop our better players and create more competitive teams to represent ISA for state level play.
Age Groups It is our goal to form teams in single age groups for girls and boys from U11 – U14, and possibly U15 or U16 and U18 teams. If not enough players are chosen for a particular age group, consideration will be given to combine age groups or allowing deserving players to move up. You have to be 9 years old by July 31 st.
This Year’s Teams We formed as many teams as possible for our first year. U12 Girls: contained U12, U11 and U10 players. U14 Girls: contained U13 and U14 players. U11 Boys, U12 Boys, U13 Boys and U14 Boys were all age specific.
This Year’s Success Our teams have won a total of four (4) tournaments We have been finalists in eight (8) tournaments. The U12 Boys team has advanced to the state championship to be held in Shreveport.
Playing Time Goal is to create teams with D1 caliber players. LSA does not guarantee minimum playing time in D1. ISA will strongly suggest each player get in each half of every game unless due to disciplinary problems. Duration is up to the coach.
Head Coach Selection ISA Approved Committee of 5 members will make selection. Will include board members and “at-large” appointees if needed. “At-large” appointees will have vast knowledge of soccer and team operations/coaching experience.
Player Tryouts $10 try out fee – To offset any expenses, including independent trainers/graders. Workouts will require at least two days/sessions. Players will be evaluated on their level of soccer skills, tactical knowledge, and overall athleticism. Evaluations will be conducted by selected board members, independent trainers/graders, and the head coach for that age-group’s team.
