BISA Adult Soccer League is a recreational co-ed league, allowing novice to experts to play together and enjoy the sport. The Adult games are played on Sundays, usually between the hours of 10AM - 6PM.
BISA has made a change in registration fees to allow for a change in the way we are paying referees. The registration fees have been lowered to allow you to pay an additional referee fee at the beginning of the season to your team manager.
For questions please contact Jennifer Carter at email@example.com.
