AYSO Region 418 Chicago Lakefront

7U to 14U Soccer

7U to 14U Programming

7 & Under (7U) to 14 & Under (14U) divisions are gender specific, with separate teams for boys and girls. 7U and 8U are single-year divisions. 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 high school age division. Games are played on Saturdays at the Chicago lakefront fields between Lawrence and Foster. Games are on a rotating schedule between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Typically 9-10 games are played each season, Fall and Spring, and teams generally hold one practice per week. Practices are scheduled by the volunteer coaches for a time and location that works with their availability. The game schedule will be posted to the Team Page Calendars automatically, and coaches will post individual practices on their Team Page Calendar or on the Dick's Team Manager App. Teams stay together through both Fall and Spring seasons, under the direction of the same two volunteer coaches. Divisions 10U, 12U, and 14U have a year-end SoccerFest tournament during the last weekend of Spring Season.
