About Us


Since forming the Euro Soccer Club in 1997, our vision has been to create a club that reflects not only our coaching staff's philosophy of developing talent through professional coaching but also one which embraces the surrounding North Shore - Northern Chicago communities passion and enthusiasm for the game of soccer.

We believe by exposing talented players to a soccer environment of dedication, education and enjoyment, every player can realize their soccer potential.


Euro Soccer Club provides education and development for young soccer players to thrive in the sport at a truly competitive level. Many youngsters fall short of their potential because they are not developed consistently during their formative years in the fundamental mechanics of soccer. Our coaches have the experience, the knowledge, and the reputations to assure this development takes place from U-7 to U-19, for boys and girls.

Our coaching staff resumes are second to none, with a reputation as soccer educators totally dedicated to youth play.

Euro Soccer Club proudly claims to develop not just soccer skills, but life skills, as well.


  • To create teams at each age group for travel soccer play that can compete at the highest levels within the greater North Shore  - Northern Chicago community and surrounding areas.
  • To prepare our athletes for competition at the next level of play, be it high school programs or college and beyond.
  • To provide programs for everybody, regardless of skill level, so that soccer is nurtured within the community.
  • To foster athleticism, integrity and above all sportsmanship.
  • To develop a consistent age and ability-appropriate program for all ages, both boys and girls.
  • To encourage and support a high level of commitment from coaches, players and parents.
