USSF Youth Soccer Mandate

** UPDATED **      As many of you have heard, the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) has mandated several changes to youth soccer that all sanctioned youth soccer clubs must implement by the 2017-2018 season, noting that it’s best practice for clubs to implement the changes for the upcoming 2016-2017 season.

On Thursday March 24th, our club will host a meeting at the indoor facility regarding the changes that the USSF has mandated.  Please consider joining us out on the field for a presentation and discussion surrounding the mandates.  Team Evanston Director of Coaching Branko Savic will lead the TE meeting from 7:00-8:00 p.m. and Eleven United DOCs Rob Mitchell and Maurizio Grillo will discuss the different ways that the mandates affect 11U players from 8:00-9:00 p.m.  If you have players in both programs we encourage you to attend both for age-specific information.

Please plan to park north of the facility along Greenwood St., and use the rear entrance, or in the Evanston Plaza and use the front entrance.  Parking in front at 2025 Dempster will be very, very limited. 

You can use this link for a map of the area with parking options.

You may click here to gain an initial overview of the changes that USSF is mandating.  The site page includes a detailed FAQ document, the age group (birth year) chart, and a video overview from USSF, detailing all of the upcoming changes.  


Trio of TE Teams Tackle St. Louis Tourney

Three teams represented Team Evanston very well last weekend at the St. Louis Scott Gallagher Spring Classic tournament.  The Girls U12 Orange team played hard and with all their heart each game in the top flight, despite having few subs; the Boys U11 Orange team were finalists and lost a close championship game 5-4; and the Boys U10 Orange team were Champions in their flight, dominating the final by a 5-1 score.  Congratulations to all three teams on a weekend of great soccer!

Team Evanston Alums Produce Video on Youth Sports

Kira Favakeh and Alex Berkley, who have both been with the organization for 10 years, produced a documentary on youth sports as part of their Senior Leadership class at ETHS that includes interviews with current and former Team Evanston players.


Facility Drop-Off and Pick-Up

The apartment building next to our indoor facility has lodged complaints with the city that Team Evanston cars are blocking residents’ access to their parking spaces. When dropping off and picking up your child, you must enter Greenwood from Dodge and line up on Greenwood heading west, so the line of cars runs east of the facility and are all headed in the same direction. You may not double-park anywhere west of the facility.  Please do not enter Greenwood from the west (Hartrey), enter it only from Dodge.

This is mandated by the city – no exceptions!  

Spirit Wear

 We are proud to announce that our club will now have Spirit Wear for parents, family members and Team Evanston supporters. Spirit Wear will allow for you to support your son/daughter on the sidelines in Team Evanston attire. Please check out our web page to see all the options, colors and different designs that are available for purchase.
