Fun for All at Ice Cream Social & Coach Game

Following Academy and travel team training sessions on Wednesday, many players (and siblings) enjoyed an ice cream cup from Hartigan's Ice Cream Shoppe and an entertaining soccer game played by Team Evanston and Eleven United coaches.  Stormy weather held off for the back-and-forth game, which featured some tricky footwork, spectacular saves, and lots of scoring and celebrations.  The orange-clad Team Evanston coaches tied the game with just seconds remaining, sending everyone home with a smile!

Fall Training Has Begun!

2016-2017 Academy Information

Register Online! 

Our Academy program introduces 5-7 year old players to the basic skills of soccer in a fun and exciting environment. The program consists of two sessions per week: eight weeks in the fall and six weeks in the spring. The first session of each week on Mondays will focus on fundamental skill-building, while the second session on Wednesdays will focus on game-play. It is Team Evanston’s belief that the game is the best teacher and our players must be put in that environment weekly.

As part of the registration fee, all Academy players will receive two Team Evanston t-shirts, one pair of socks, one pair of shorts, and a soccer ball on the first day of practice. Players should always bring a bottle of water.

Facility Drop-Off and Pick-Up

The apartment building next to our indoor facility has lodged complaints with the city that Team Evanston cars are blocking residents’ access to their parking spaces. When dropping off and picking up your child, you must enter Greenwood from Dodge and line up on Greenwood heading west, so the line of cars runs east of the facility and are all headed in the same direction. You may not double-park anywhere west of the facility.  Please do not enter Greenwood from the west (Hartrey), enter it only from Dodge.

This is mandated by the city – no exceptions!  

USSF Youth Soccer Mandate

** UPDATED **      As many of you have heard, the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) has mandated several changes to youth soccer that all sanctioned youth soccer clubs must implement by the 2017-2018 season, noting that it’s best practice for clubs to implement the changes for the upcoming 2016-2017 season.

On Thursday March 24th, our club will host a meeting at the indoor facility regarding the changes that the USSF has mandated.  Please consider joining us out on the field for a presentation and discussion surrounding the mandates.  Team Evanston Director of Coaching Branko Savic will lead the TE meeting from 7:00-8:00 p.m. and Eleven United DOCs Rob Mitchell and Maurizio Grillo will discuss the different ways that the mandates affect 11U players from 8:00-9:00 p.m.  If you have players in both programs we encourage you to attend both for age-specific information.

Please plan to park north of the facility along Greenwood St., and use the rear entrance, or in the Evanston Plaza and use the front entrance.  Parking in front at 2025 Dempster will be very, very limited. 

You can use this link for a map of the area with parking options.

You may click here to gain an initial overview of the changes that USSF is mandating.  The site page includes a detailed FAQ document, the age group (birth year) chart, and a video overview from USSF, detailing all of the upcoming changes.
