Pause of Winter Training

Parents/Players -


On Tuesday afternoon Governor Pritzker announced that the entire state will be moving to Tier 3 mitigations due to the rise in COVID cases, positivity rates and hospitalizations. We were expecting some mitigations for our region and had a plan in place to move from our current groups to groups of 10. Unfortunately, these new mitigations do not allow for any indoor activities. These mandates begin on Friday at 12:01am and they are very clear as it pertains to youth sports: “Pause all indoor group sporting and recreational activities including youth and adult recreational sports, individual training may remain (with facility reservation)”. As a result, we now need to postpone all training until further notice beginning Friday, 11/20. We are hopeful that these steps will help the current COVID situation and are hopeful that we can be back training in some fashion as soon as possible. 


The Thursday 11/19/20 session WILL be conducted as scheduled.  


Although we want to continue because we know we are doing everything in our power to keep the players safe, we need to take the appropriate steps to protect the Club.  

We are sure many of you will have questions regarding payments, making up training times, etc. and we ask for your patience as we try to navigate through all of this. We will have a communication regarding payments in the near future. Our intention at this time will be to resume as quickly as we are able and provide the training you have paid for. These training sessions will be rescheduled once more information is known. We will keep everyone informed as we receive further guidance.


As always, we appreciate all of your support and your efforts to keep your players and your families safe. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out and we will do our best to answer them. Please email


Thanks and we will see you soon....
