Team Chicago Supplemental Tryouts!

Posted by Team Chicago Soccer Club at Jun 3, 2019 9:35AM PDT

Team Chicago is holding supplemental tryouts for players born between 2006-2013 on June 4th and 5th.

Our coaching staff is licensed and qualified to provide a positive, supportive and challenging learning environment. We focus on creating a place for players to learn and develop to their full potential through game-like experiences in an age-appropriate atmosphere that promotes individual growth.

All of our younger teams train twice a week and also receive an additional session of technical training by our Brazilian Master Skills Coach. Players also receive a subscription to an online technical training program to help enhance their love for the ball and improve their skills.

What makes Team Chicago different? In addition to our staff and programming we have our own indoor facility, plus access to outdoor lighted fields for games and practices at the same location. This allows us maximum opportunities for player developmental throughout the year.

Here at Team Chicago, we provide more for your player in their development year-round than anybody in the area.

Come play with the best!
