Our vision is to create a model soccer organization unique to Chicago, this Region and to America. All activity is directed to the development for boys and girls at 8U to 19U age levels.

We have challenged our staff to meet these goals by:

  • Creating a club atmosphere that encompasses more than high quality soccer but also embraces the culture where family and teamwork is valued; where servicing the community, having fun and growing as a team player and leader is emphasized.
  • Creating a cohesive, inclusive environment that promotes personal and community growth, allowing our team to focus on gratitude and the benefits a successful team brings to our own lives.
  • Promoting an educational atmosphere for student athletes by providing a format for educational and social opportunities. Our players and their parents will be exposed to people and places all over the world after they have finished their time with this program. Soccer is an ideal way for our players and parents to see the U.S. and the world in a different light. It will not be uncommon for our players and parents to develop relationships that last way beyond their playing years.
