2017 Chapter and Sportsmanship Awards

Our chapter is asking our members to once again take five minutes from their busy lives to vote for referee and coach sportsmanship awards. The award recipients will be honored by our chapter at our dinner on Monday night, November 13. We ask that you download, complete the ballot and send your responses to Randy Vogt. If you cannot complete all seven categories, try and do so by including games from the past few years and not just 2017, and if needed, matches on all levels. Thank you!

Rockland/Westchester Chapter Fitness Test

Jack Schiavone from the Rockland/Westchester ISOA told us his chapter will administer the NISOA fitness test at Blind Brook High School in Rye Neck, New York on August 5, 2017 at 8:30am. NY Metro ISOA members should contact Jack directly if they are interested in taking the test on that date.

In Memoriam; Ray Wolfe

The Executive Board and members of the NY Metro ISOA Chapter extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Ray Wolfe who passed away on July 11, 2017. Ray was a long time member of the chapter as well being involved with all aspects of soccer in eastern New York State and the metropolitan area. His infectious smile, selflessness and generosity will be greatly missed. Read the rest of this article »

Fitness Test Reporting and Exceptions

Due to popular demand, we have restored the ability to receive a certification of your fitness test status via email. As the new test is pass/fail, we are only maintaining pass/fail data on the web site.

Please be aware that our chapter does not maintain a list of when nearby chapters are administering their chapter fitness tests. If you can not take a scheduled fitness test with the NY Metro chapter, it’s your responsibility to contact other chapters. Use the chapter locator on the NISOA web site to get contact information for your use.
