General Information

Eligibility Requirements

Players must live or attend school in one of these communities: Burr Ridge, Clarendon Hills, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Westmont or Willowbrook.

Minimum age: Child must be age 4 by July 31.

When We Play

Our region’s soccer year consists of two seasons, fall and spring. When you register your child to play, the fee covers both seasons. The teams remain the same for the fall and spring seasons. All games are on Saturdays and teams typically have one or two practices during the week. The exception is our U5 (preschool) program which only meets for a one-hour session on Saturday mornings. Our fall season starts in late August or early September. There are usually two weeks of practice before the first game. The first game is traditionally the first Saturday after Labor Day weekend. We usually play eight games in the fall season. Our spring season starts in late March or early April. There are usually two weeks of practice before the first game.  The last game is traditionally near the last day of school. We usually play eight games in the spring season.

Where We Play

All of our practices and games take place in one of the following communities: Burr Ridge, Clarendon Hills, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Westchester and Western Springs. Field sizes and locations vary for each age division. Specific field assignments for practices and games are made each season. For a detailed list of fields, please see the Field Locations page of this website.

How To Register

Regular registration for each year takes place in May. If you miss the regular registration, you can still register your child to play. Please see the Registration page of this website for detailed registration instructions.
