Youth Soccer

Volunteer Coaches Needed!

Volunteer coaches are needed for our youth sports leagues. Our youth leagues continue to be a great experience for the children in the community. Volunteer coaches are a big reason these leagues have been so successful. Please support your son or daughter, get involved and sign up to be coach! Volunteers receive a $25 Park District credit to be used towards future programs or activities. Coaches clinics available!

Please Note: Due to the size and nature of sports leagues, requests to accommodate individual schedules and preferences cannot be honored. Please be sure that your child will be available for practices and games according to the schedule given by coaches.

Youth Sports Blind-Draft Policy

In order to provide every child with fair and equal treatment, a blind draft process will form the teams. Due to the large number of registrants in our youth sports programs and the attempt to keep teams equal, we cannot accommodate special requests for specific coaches or teammates. Only the head coach and one assistant coach will be allowed to request that their children be placed on the same team.
