** 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.
