SEASON LENGTH: September 15 - December 18
PRACTICE LOCATION: Practices are based out of the Athletico Center in Northbrook. Due to Covid, there may be occasional times where we spread out. Our secondary facility is the Northfield Park District and we have also secured time at the JCC, which is 1 mile west of the Athletico Center in Northbrook.

|WHAT ABOUT FALL AND WINTER AND COMPETITION?|
By signing up for the Fall Training program, you will have the ability to continue with us through Winter and Spring seasons. IF we are able to compete, players will have the option to opt in for competition teams and we will have internal tryouts from within our Fall Training program to build competition club teams. If we are not able to compete, we will repeat the Fall Training program for both Winter (January - March) and Spring seasons (April - June).
Will there be "Elite" and "Regional" teams? We are going to begin with our 11’s & 12’s program all together and we will treat the first several weeks as an evaluation period to get to know the players. After that point, we will be grouping the players in training pods that will be based on skill, ability, and coachability so that players will be able to make as much progress as possible during this awesome training time. Again, at this point in time, we plan for all 11’s & 12’s to be practicing together, even after we split into training pods, but those pods will eventually be based on skill level.
