AYSO Region 418 Chicago Lakefront

7U to 14U Core Divisions

7 & Under (7U) to 14 & Under (14U) divisions are gender specific, with separate teams for boys and girls. 7U and 8U will again be separate divisions for the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 seasons. 10U and 12U divisions are two-year age divisions. The 14U division includes 8th graders with 4th quarter birth dates which would otherwise place them in the 15U high school age division.

Teams are coached by parent volunteers. Teams stay together through both fall and spring seasons. New teams are formed each fall.

Games are played on Saturdays at the
Chicago lakefront fields between Lawrence and Foster. Games are on a rotating schedule with games starting between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Typically 9-10 games are played each season, fall and spring. Teams hold one practice per week, which are scheduled by the volunteer coaches for a time and location that works with their availability.

Divisions 10U, 12U, and 14U have a year-end SoccerFest tournament during the last weekend of Spring Season. 

Team assignments are released in mid-to-late August, depending on when the season starts. Fall season typically runs from early September to early November, and spring season runs mid-April to mid-June.

New Player Buddies

New to AYSO418 or have a friend who's joining for their first season?

If your player is joining us in 6U, 7U or 8U they can buddy-up with a returning player or another new player in the same age division for their first season playing with us. Email your division manager after registering and we'll do our best to assign them to the same team, but can't guarantee it.
