Hello NISL Members, 
During these uncertain and trying times, the NISL will continue to keep you updated as soon as developments are made. The NISL will only consider operating a league for its membership when the expert public health advice from reliable organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) make a decision that permits it safe for children to participate in NISL activities, whatever that length of time may be. Caution is our safety instruction to all.  Once the league has deemed it safe to resume activities based on the advice from these public health organizations we will update all of our members and we will provide sufficient notice prior to the start of any event or game. To be clear, all league events are suspended until further notice.
