Training This Week Moved to Indoor Facility

All training for the week of April 14th has been moved to Team Evanston's new state-of-the-art indoor facility located at 2025 W. Dempster street (just west of Dodge). Click the relevant link below to download the schedule:

It’s important to note that you can’t pick up nor drop off from Dempster! Instead, a zone has been set up in the rear of the building. Enter from Hartrey (past the U-Haul, make a right on Greenwood and follow the signage). View a map here.

Please make sure that your son/daughter fills out our liability waiver before team training.

For now at least, this schedule is for this week only – hopefully, next week we will move outdoors.

U15 Boys Finalist in Springfield

Our U15 Boys competed the SASA Lincolnland Invitational in Springfield on March 22-23 and went 2-0-1 during first round group play to advance to the final. Despite 20 degree weather and what felt like 40-50 mile per hour winds the boys stuck to their game and showed off some great soccer. In their first game, Dylan TerMolen and Sam Blustein led the way to a  2-0 victory over the Croatian Eagles from Wisconsin. They were held scoreless against Astra from Illinois in their second game, resulting in a 0-0 tie. For their final game, Steven Ibarra took charge and provided the team with the lone goal against Legacy Navy from Illinois ultimately advancing them to the final. There they went up against a tough SASA Spirits team and were defeated 1-0 to give them second place in the tournament and an overall record of 2-1-1. 

Activity at the Facility Builds Prodigiously

Crews are hard at work getting Team Evanston’s indoor facility into shape: the turf is going down, nets are going up, lights are going in. Located at 2025 Dempster (west of the corner of Dempster and Dodge, across from Temperance Brewing), the 30,000 square foot facility will house practice fields, administrative offices, and meeting rooms. Team Evanston plans to begin scheduling activities in the facility in April, including open gyms. Stay tuned for details.  Very exciting!

Team Evanston Hits The Jackpot!

Over President's Day weekend, our U16 Girls Premier team, U14 Boys Premier team, U15 Boys Premier team, and U16 Boys Premier team traveled to Las Vegas to compete in the Mayor's Cup, one of the most prestigious international college showcases, drawing elite national and international teams.

U16 Girls Premier

Our U16 girls secured 2nd place in their bracket within the most-competitive division, with an overall record of 2-1-1. They started off on Saturday with a tie against an Oregon team ranked 6th in their state and a tough 2-1 loss against a team ranked 8th in northern California, but came back on Sunday to destroy an all-star team from Australia 6-0 and continued their winning streak into Monday by defeating CAP FC United from California 2-1.

U14 Boys Premier

Our U14 boys competed in the East division and were able to secure 2nd place with an overall record of 3-1, only a single point separating them from first place. In the first game, the boys came out strong and secured a quick, 4-0 victory over a California team, Valley YSL Arsenal. In their later game, they fell 3-2 in a heartbreaker against the tough tournament champions, Downtown LVSC 01 Academy. For the remainder of the weekend, the boys shut out the competition, beating the final two teams with a score of 3-0 in both games.

U15 Boys Premier

Our U15 boys kicked off the tournament with an outstanding first day, destroying a Nevada team, Sparks Legacy 6-1 and a California club 2-1. The following day they were sent straight to the quarterfinals, where they had an exciting game against Cook Inlet Velocity Blue from Alaska and lost 3-2. In their final competition of the tournament, the boys came out tough against Arsenal Colorado Gold (ranked 11th in Colorado) and defeated them 2-1. With this victory, they were able to get first in the Adidas bracket.

U16 Boys Premier

Our U16 boys started the tournament weekend facing two extremely competitive teams, resulting in two ties on Saturday. On Sunday they played Canada's Southwest United Sports Edmonton SWU 98 and secured a victory to push them ahead to the final game on Monday against the Colorado Rapids. On Monday, the boys held onto their winning streak and shut out Colorado with a final score of 1-0, securing them 2nd place in their bracket.

Congratulations to all four teams on an amazing weekend. We're extremely proud of them and look forward to their spring season!
