About Chicago Community League

What is Chicago Community League?

Chicago Community League (CCL) is a non-profit, recreational soccer program for boys and girls ages U6-U14 years. Players are divided into divisions and teams based on age. Participation in each league season includes 8 practices (Participants can choose between a virtual practice, in-person practice, or both) 8 games (Games will be in-person), and jersey.

COVID UPDATE:

​Looking for a SAFE and ACTIVE release from Homeschooling?  JOIN A (CCSP) COVID COMPLIANT SPORTS POD for youth sports this Fall.

​We are following the recommendations from IYSA, IDPH, and the Governor's office to ensure a safe environment for youth sports.

The (CCSP) COVID COMPLIANT SPORTS POD is designed to allow youth to participate in soccer while providing each player with a safe, active outlet in our new COVID normal.

​The (CCSP) is structured for up to 20 players in each bracket and is uniquely designed to limit exposure throughout the season. U6, U8, U10, U12, U14  will remain in their CCSP throughout the season. As an example, our U8 soccer division will have 20 players in that CCSP during the season and all practice and games will only include those 20 players. 

Players will receive virtual training videos throughout the 8-week program that they can watch and perform at home. In-person training will be held on Thursday evenings.

Because each bracket has a limited number of spots, spaces are limited, so REGISTER TODAY!

School Teams

In addition to KICS teams, local elementary and middle schools partner with KICS to enter teams in the league to serve as an extension of school athletics. Contact your school or info@chicagokics.com to get your school involved or find out if your school is already participating in the upcoming season!
