Region 418 was once again recognized as an AYSO Platinum Region for the year.
Platinum Regions model AYSO's philosophies and commitment to providing the best family friendly youth soccer experiences for all players throughout their immediate communities and beyond. Congratulations to every volunteer, parent, player, coach and referee who tirelessly works so very hard to make Region 418 a fantastic place for our children to enjoy soccer.
League play begins Saturday, September 10, for all divisions. We play every Saturday through Saturday, November 5.
Your coach will contact you once we have teams and coaches assigned and let you know what day he or she is considering as the best time for practice. Practices will begin the week following Labor Day, though some may begin sooner.
Your Child's Coach
You may hear from your coach before Labor Day weekend. If you do not hear by Labor Day, please contact our Regional Commissioner (Rob Randolph) at email@example.com or the Division Administrator for you child's appropriate age and gender division. Meanwhile, your Division Administrators are balancing teams, assigning players, and assigning volunteers.
Official registration is closed and we cannot promise placement on any team at this time. We will, however, accept a registration for the wait list. If we have enough field space and volunteers, we may be able to create more teams. For future reference, our official registration always closes by the end of June.
Registration is now closed for all divisions except VIP, U5, and High School divisions.
Registration is closed, but the free wait list is open.
We will build teams this week and players will be accepted off the wait list on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority going to those that volunteer to coach their team.
Hope to see you volunteering as a coach or referee in the fall!

It gives me great pride to announce that AYSO Region 418 of the Chicago Lakefront was recently acknowledged as the 2015 AYSO Region of the Year! The award was presented to us at the AYSO National Annual General Meeting in May, and recognizes the AYSO Region which best represents the organization in its support of AYSO philosophies and policies, in its striving for constant improvement, and its commitment to training volunteers.
More than anything else, this tremendous accomplishment is a recognition of our volunteers. Whether you are a coach, referee, assistant coach, or any other volunteer, you earned this award. As an all-volunteer organization, our successes are really the work of our volunteers. More than 700 volunteers keep our Region going and each volunteer does the work of two people or more. It is a testament to the dedication that all of us have to providing the best soccer experience that we can to our 3,500 players and their families. AYSO provides us the framework and philosophies, you bring it to life every practice and game!
On behalf of the AYSO 418 Board, thank you again to all of our volunteers. You should all go celebrate this incredible achievement, but before you do be sure to volunteer for next year too! Consider also inviting a friend or colleague to volunteer so we continue to spread the positive soccer culture that we are developing on the Lakefront. More importantly, let's just keep working together as volunteers to provide an AYSO sports environment where our players can grow and develop both on and off our fields.
Thanks again for all that you do!
Yours in AYSO spirit and pride,
AYSO Region 418 Chicago Lakefront

We are now open for registration for next year (Fall 2016/Spring 2017). Follow this link to our new Region 418 registration site. You will need to create a new player account. This new registration tool does not utilize eAYSO, our old registration system. We hope you find this new system user friendly and easy to navigate.
Safety comes first! As we prepare for the upcoming season, coaches, referees, and AYSO officials need to be aware of their important role in completing incident reports. Please see the Safety Awareness page for more information and helpful links.
We are always looking for motivated volunteers to become coaches! No coaching experience, or even soccer experience, is required. We will train you! Becoming an AYSO coach is a fun and incredibly rewarding experience. You will have the opportunity to teach kids both soccer skills and life lessons that they will carry with them the rest of their lives. Make an impact. Become a coach! Please see our "How to Become a Coach!" page.
