Update 11-18-20 - Tier 3 Restrictions

Governor Pritzker announced Tier 3 Mitigations going in to effect for all of Illinois, starting Friday Nov 20. These mitigations include a pause all indoor group sporting and recreational activities.

Tomorrow (Thursday, Nov 19) will be our last training session for awhile. As soon as we are out of Tier 3, we will offer a winter session of the Indoor Kickers. While we are not yet sure of the dates at this point, we will automatically transfer your fall registration to the winter session. Your child will be able to start a brand new session at that time. If the dates do not end up working for your schedule, or you choose not to have your child participate in the new session, we will give you a pro-rated refund.

We hope to see you all soon after the New Year.  Until then, we hope your family stays safe and healthy!

11-10-20 We still have a few spots open in each hour. Register today!

We are excited to announce we will be having a 2020 Fall Indoor Kickers Academy! With a few added modifications, we are gearing up for a fun season.
