Youth Soccer

INDOOR SEASON
November 27th through March 28th
for children Ages 4 to 14 years

In 2009, the Blue Island Park District set out to provide a well-balanced soccer program beyond what was a typically offered by a Park District of its size. After many months of preparation, the Blue Island Park District offered its first comprehensive soccer program in the winter of 2010. Much to their surprise, they accomplished what was before thought impossible, soccer in Blue Island was born, and it was a huge hit!

 

Almost a decade later, the Blue Island Park District Soccer program has grown exponentially. Throughout the years it has grown from a simple seasonal program to a year-round experience with a wide array of activities including intermural leagues, travel seasons, indoor and outdoor play.

 

Along for the ride is a coaching staff of over 30 team coaches, youth volunteers, and a parent-led organization bent on providing the means to the betterment of soccer in Blue Island.
