Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Graders receive a new uniform in the Fall and Spring. 3rd-8th Grade players wear the same uniform for both Fall and Spring.

In-house games are all played at various nearby Park District fields. Inter-Village divisions require teams to travel up to 20 minutes away to play surrounding communities such as Carol Stream, Elgin, Bloomingdale, Hanover Park, Hoffman Estates, and Streamwood.

Many coaches are needed to make this a great league. Please consider volunteering as a coach. We provide equipment, training, and resources.
