AYSO Region 418 is an all-volunteer organization providing Spring and Fall soccer programs for elementary through
high school kids on Chicago's north lakefront. Participation is open to all.
Games are on
Registration for Membership Year 2013 (Fall 2013 & Spring 2014) is open and will remain open through the season. We have limited capacity and usually fill up at most divisions, so please register early to avoid ending up on a wait list. Find more info on our Registration page.
Tryouts for our Northwind and EXTRA travel soccer clubs will be held the last week of May. You can find more info about each club, including what teams they intend to field next year and how to sign up for tryouts, under our Programs menu or by going to northwind.ayso418.org and extra.ayso418.org.
Also, for our U10 and U12 players, we are offering FREE Keeper Clinics every Friday through May at 6pm-7pm.
Clinics will be held on turf field #2 and are available without pre-registration for individuals rostered on a team this season. They will be managed by our Elite Professional Trainers. Certified Coaches are welcome to assist as needed based upon attendees. Check out our Open Clinics page for details.
Region 418 was recognized as one of the best AYSO regions in the country in 2012. We were awarded a Gold Certification by AYSO National based in large part on the activities of our volunteers. That means our coaches, referees, and administrators have job-specific training, which enables all of us to provide a better experience for our players.
The National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) has announced the allocation of 55 U.S., Canadian, and Mexican National Team players to its 8 teams for the inaugural 2013 season. AYSO alum, Shannon Boxx, was one of the 3 U.S. National Team players allocated to the Chicago Red Stars! (See the full list at chicagoredstars.com.)
