News and Announcements

Team Chicago 2004-05 Boys Elite team won their YSSL division with a record of 9-1-0 and outscoring their opponents 49 to 8.

Coach Kevin Gowrie- “The boys have worked hard on the practice field this season and that intensity carried over into the games. Most of them were fairly straight forward although there were some brief lapses in concentration where we became complacent and put ourselves under a bit of pressure. The most important thing was that we learned from the experience and the lads started to hold one another accountable to make sure that our standards do not drop. They are looking forward to a new challenge in the Spring season”

Team Chicago-2007 Premier finished the fall season undefeated and took first place in its IWSL division scoring 30 goals and only allowing 8. Prior to this season they had a total of 8 wins in the last two seasons.
