Winter 2020-21

REALIZING OUR OPPORTUNITY: The opportunity in winter is to focus larger amounts of time to technical repetition since indoor training space is limited. This includes 1v1 attacking and defending skills, passing/ receiving in tight spaces and while under pressure, and moving to create quick numerical advantages. These are all inherent to success indoors and will improve player’s effectiveness when outdoors in the larger spaces.

ADAPTING TO IMPROVE: During winter we often play small-sided league games and even frequently play ourselves in the league. Through our own internal futsal league we can improve the speed of play by playing on the hard court and control the league including balancing teams, competition format, and officiating. Futsal keeps the games fast and competitive. Training groups will be organized into teams for these winter weekend futsal games so we can continue to create a competitive environment while we are indoors.

SAME GREAT POSITIVE, PURPOSEFUL, AND PROFESSIONAL COACHES: The format of the league play and the training surface changes, but the coaching and emphasis on development remains the same!

CONTINUING WITH A CURRICULUM: We will continue to theme our training sessions as a club so that all players in the age group are working on the same training topics.

TRAINING GROUPS

  • By age group
  • Age groups will be combined to for league play or training based on registrations

Due to the combining of age groups, coaches will work training sessions and games with the age groups that they were originally scheduled to coach. The coaching staff will work together to balance conflicts.

Where can I buy a uniform?

Uniforms can be purchased here. Please note that the backpack is optional.

Players and teams will not be allowed to compete wearing the old uniform this spring. The uniform is part of representing the club and an important part of the club’s identity.


U12 Boys and Girls (2009s)
Since the U12 age group (2009s) will buy a new CFJ kit in 2021-22 when they transition to CFJ, then they do not have to purchase the new Team Evanston uniform kit for 2020-21. Requiring them to purchase the new Team Evanston uniform kit now would mean 3 years of uniform purchases when a 2-year cycle was designed to avoid players buying uniforms every year. The U12 players that have the former uniform kit can continue in this kit for the Spring of 2021.
