Rec+ Travel League
Cost:$125 (includes home and away jersey, shorts, socks)
Age Divisions: U8-U14
The Rec+ Travel Program for the more experienced player aged U8-U14 who excels at in-house play. This program is a stepping stone between in-house play and club-level play. Players compete against teams from the surrounding Northwest Indiana area who are also passionate and excel in the sport.
The Rec+ Travel program runs during the Fall and Spring seasons and is sanctioned by NWISL (nwisl.com). The league is comprised of 22 surrounding towns within Northwest Indiana.
NWISL places each team in one of several tiers. Team placement is based on the time the team has been together, how many players the club returns to the league every year, and other factors. New teams with newer players are generally placed in lower divisions; whereas, teams that have played together and have done well move up to higher divisions.
Rec+ teams typically practice twice per week at the fields near Bibich Elementary. There are four home and four away games. Home and away game locations vary by who is in our bracket. Towns include: Munster, Highland, Hammond, Lansing, Valparaiso, Portage, Lowell, Schererville, Griffith, Ogden Dunes, Crown Point, Duneland, Hobart, Laporte, Union Township, Michigan City, Demotte, Lake of the Four Seasons, and Hebron.
Games are set by NWISL and usually occur on Sundays between noon and 3:00 p.m. Some Saturday games are possible and should be expected. Coaches for this program are volunteers, but are usually more experienced than in-house coaches.
Teams often stay together and enroll in tournaments and play together during winter at indoor facilities in the off season.
Because this is a competitive league, Dyer Kickers reserves the right to hold player evaluations before players are placed. Player spots are limited by NWISL.
