Welcome to Lower Island Soccer Association!

New to soccer? Check out our boundary map to determine which club you will be playing for: Boundary Map

Within the LISA District there are out-of-boundary rules so it is recommended you play where you live since there are rules restricting the number of out-of-boundary players per team. To find your boundary club click the above ‘Boundary Map’ link.  Registration is completed on each club’s own site through an online registration system.  Don’t delay, it is filling up and games are starting soon.
