Frequently Asked Questions

What are your seasons? Does my child need to play every season?

The fall outdoor season runs from mid-August to the second week of November.  Winter indoor season runs from the week after December to March.The spring outdoor season goes from the first week of April to the first week of June.

We typically give players a 2 week break between seasons. We also give 2 weeks off for Thanksgiving and an additional 2 weeks of for Christmas. All in all we deliver approximately 40 weeks of training year-round.

Pre-Academy and Academy players can enroll one season at a time. Travel team players are required to play fall and spring season. Elite teams are required to play year round.

 

How much travel is involved in travel soccer?

It really depends on the level at which your player is playing. Within our travel/competitive program we have three (3) levels. White teams and blue teams typically only have to travel 5-20 miles each way for games. Keep in mind that half the games in any season are home games.

Elite teams travel across state lines several times a year to compete at top tournaments, Super Y league and MRL (Midwest Regional League).

My child is new to soccer. Where should they start?

It depends on their age. 3-5 year olds should start with our Super Strikers program. 6-10 year olds should consider our weekly Pre-Academy class. Learn about our Pre-Academy program and visit us for a free trial. Our goal is to find the ideal place for your child to compete and learn. If your player is more advanced, we're happy invite you to one of our practices to get to know us, the coaches and the culture of the club. Just contact us to schedule a friendly chat.

Is there anything not included in club dues?

Academy players do not need official uniforms - but families are encouraged to order both blue and white training t-shirts from European Sports.

Competitive team members are required to purchase a full kit - which includes game gear.

There are always optional programs such as Parisi Speed training, Lifezone Human Performance classes or semi-private soccer coaching for you to engage in.

Some teams opt to travel to additional tournaments and those fees are passed on to the parents. A typical tournament fee ranges from $35-75 per player.

Spirit wear is optional - and another fun investment families make outside of basic club dues.

Do you have subsidized pricing or scholarships?

Yes. We offer 25%, 50% and 75% scholarships that allow us to subsidize fees for qualified families in need (or families with multiple players) on a case-by-case basis.

We also fund academic scholarships for players attending private school in the area. Talk to a coach during a camp or tryout to evaluate if one of these programs is a fit for you.

What Other Are Saying

I was looking for a soccer program for my 2 kids and was so pleased to find one that is faith-based and so close to our home. We've been involved for about 2 years now and we can't say enough about how great it's been. The coaches are warm, friendly and great on the field. My kids love playing for them. Both Plato Park and Lifezone are safe and well taken care of. We're proud to be part of this club.

We left another local club when it was time for tryouts because we didn't feel our son was getting the quality of training he needed. He needed a lot of work and the coaches at the other club just left him by the wayside since he wasn't a "star". The Lions coaches were quite different. Randy is doing private training with my son to get his skills up and he is loving the experience. Thank you!
