From Gus Bender, Illinois Youth Soccer President

Recreational soccer is the foundation of our game. It is where players first learn to enjoy the sport and learn soccer skills in a fun and safe environment. It is where many parents have their first interaction with soccer as a volunteer coach or as an anxious parent on the sideline of their child’s first rec game.

Although we are heading into the winter months, Spring will be here before you know it. In this publication you can find information on all of our 70+ recreational member leagues. These programs emphasize fun over winning at all cost and provide a positive environment for young players to learn and enjoy soccer with their neighborhood friends and classmates.

Illinois Youth Soccer provides educational programs and risk management information to our member rec leagues. Through this publication, we are promoting our recreational member programs and providing a resource to parents looking for a credible development program to get their child started in the world game. Good luck with the start of your soccer journey! -Gus Bender, Illinois Youth Soccer President

What You & Your Child Should Get From Rec Soccer

Adam Howarth Illinois Youth Soccer Director Of Coaching

Recreational Soccer: What Should I Expect

Below are 2 key elements to what you should look for in a recreation soccer program. All programs are different but as long as they are following the philosophy of ideas set up below your son/daughter will enjoy their first introduction into soccer!

How should the program be set up? ● There is no selection/tryout process. ● Skill evaluations may be held to form teams in a fair and balanced method. ● All players who register are assigned to a team as long as space is available on team rosters. More often than not teams are set up based on school district boundaries. ● There is usually a one- time registration fee. ● Players benefit from the opportunity for social interaction with other players. ● All games are usually held at the same, local location every weekend for 6-8 weeks. ● Typically, coaches are parent volunteers.

What should I expect from my coaches? ● Positive Attitude, Respect and Sportsmanship for all. ● Try to play attacking and creative soccer ● Equal playing time. ● The priority is to give players opportunities to play to their strengths and eliminate their weaknesses.

3 Tips For Soccer Parents

1. Let the player’s play and the coaches coach! It is easy to get involved in the game and at times say too much during the match. As a parent it is easy to get too enthusiastic when watching your son/daughter play. Keep your comments to yourself and be supportive!

2. Avoid criticizing the Referee The job of a referee is not an easy one and at the recreation level this is often their first experience doing soccer matches on a consistent basis. Give them the benefit of the doubt and let them learn as the game goes on. Often you will see the same referees for your matches so avoid comments during matches.

3. Avoid talking about the match in the car When the game is over, more often than not, your son/daughter has often moved on. It is up to you to do the same thing. Do not worry about how well or poorly they played. Keep your focus on the process and work with them to improve their game

Renews Sponsorship Of Illinois Youth Soccer

Illinois Youth Soccer is excited to announce that Wintrust Community Bank has renewed its sponsorship of Illinois’ largest youth soccer organization and will remain Official Bank of Illinois Youth Soccer thru at least 2019.

“Since 2013, Wintrust Community Bank has been a great supporter of Illinois Youth Soccer and we are very pleased to continue our partnership with Illinois’ premier banking institution,” said Mary Jane Bender, Illinois Youth Soccer Executive Director. “We use our local Wintrust Community Bank, Village Bank & Trust of Arlington Heights, for all of our banking needs, so to have their backing as a sponsor shows their commitment to the soccer community throughout Illinois. Thru the new recreational uniform program, Wintrust is directly giving back to our programs, truly showing their dedication to our programs.”

Part of the renewed sponsorship agreement is the new Wintrust Recreational Uniform Sponsorship Program. Thru this program, selected recreational leagues will receive a direct financial contribution from Wintrust for their uniforms. The new program launched this Fall with Wauconda Township Soccer Association and Franklin Park Thunder Soccer Club as the recipients of the program unveiling.

“With the cost of uniforms, soccer balls, equipment and trophies rising, the Wintrust Community Bank sponsorship will allow us to

continue to provide a quality recreational youth soccer program for the kids in our community, without increasing registration fees,” Wayne Bernacki of Franklin Park Thunder Soccer said.

Each Wintrust Community Bank was founded as a de novo (from scratch) banking organization. The organizational efforts began in 1991 when a group of experienced bankers and local business people identified an unfilled niche in the Chicago metropolitan area retail banking market. As large banks acquired smaller ones and personal service was subjected to consolidation strategies, the opportunity became clear in the suburbs for locally controlled and managed, highly personal service-oriented banks. Since 1991, nine banks and over 40 facilities have been opened on a de novo basis. In 2003, Wintrust began acquiring de novo banking organizations that fit the mold of its current portfolio of bank groups, while continuing to expand via a de novo basis. Wintrust Community Banks are controlled by a strong, participatory, local board and are

managed by a team of experienced bankers who are respected in their community and average more than 20 years of experience per person in the banking business. These ties and their deep knowledge of banking and the neighborhood is a key to each of our bank's success.

Overall, Wintrust Community banks offer home equity, home mortgage, real estate and commercial loans, safe deposit facilities, trust services, online banking and bill pay, and other services specially tailored to meet the needs of customers in their market areas.

Currently Wintrust Community Bank has nine Illinois-chartered banks: •Hinsdale Bank & Trust Company •Lake Forest Bank & Trust Company •Libertyville Bank & Trust Company

•Northbrook Bank & Trust Company •North Shore Community Bank & Trust Company •St. Charles Bank & Trust •State Bank of The Lakes •Village Bank & Trust •Wheaton Bank & Trust One Wisconsin-chartered bank: •Town Bank

And five nationally-chartered banks: •Schaumburg Bank & Trust Company, N.A. •Barrington Bank & Trust Company, N.A. •Beverly Bank & Trust Company, N.A. •Crystal Lake Bank & Trust Company, N.A. •Old Plank Trail Community Bank, N.A. Visit wintrust.com for details.

What is TOPSoccer?

TOPSoccer (The Outreach program for Soccer) is an adaptive soccer program for athletes with special needs. TOPSoccer athletes spend time learning both soccer and socialization skills in a safe, accepting environment with the assistance of volunteer Buddies and Coaches. Each session emphasizes fun, and every athlete is challenged to grow and learn within his/her abilities. Through the assistance of Buddies and Coaches, the athletes are encouraged to give their best effort, work hard to be the best player he/she can be, and join their fellow players to be a great teammate. Anyone age 5 and up with an intellectual disability and/or physical impairment is welcome to join a local TOPSoccer team.

Don’t Be

“That” Parent

One of the core principals of recreational soccer is players having fun. Sometimes, parents can be over-enthisiastic when rooting for their child and sometimes that enthusiasm can have an adverse affect on a young player. While the below videos have a humorous take on some of the situations, they certainly focus on the very important point that SOCCER IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN FOR THE KIDS.
