Our flagship program for young athletes, iProSkills Core offers high-quality soccer training for children ages 4 to 16. Most players ages 4-6 participate in iProSkills Juniors, a fun, developmental program that introduces young athletes to soccer, teaches them basic footwork and skills and prepares them for competitive play. Children in this age range who are ready for the next step may have the option to join the iProSkills Competitive Program.
Players ages 7-16 in our iProSkills Competitive Program are assigned to a team based on age and current skill level and take part in weekly practices and games. Players looking to challenge themselves may add extra weekly practices or may be given the opportunity to practice with older teams. Our coaches are flexible and creative in meeting the needs of each player and family.
Practices for both groups involve a combination of individual and group activities, drills, footwork, challenges, and scrimmages. At all ages and levels, our results-driven, European-style program emphasizes individual development, hard work, integrity, and mental preparation. iProSkills is invested in all aspects of our athletes’ development. Players are expected to maintain a respectful attitude and are held accountable for their academic performance.
iProSkills is a member of the following competitive leagues:
- Young Sportsmen’s Soccer League (YSSL)
- Illinois Women’s Soccer League (IWSL)
- Northern Illinois Soccer League (NISL) Platinum
- Chicago Premier Soccer League (CPSL)
* An additional weekly practice may be added for $100 per season. Need-based scholarships available, contact us for more information
