First Annual 3 on 3 Soccer Festival – Sat. July 18

This is a family friendly event. Although the partipants will all be adult men and women, kids are encouraged to come watch. There will be live music following the games (approximately 5pm) as well as culinary delights from Hummingbird Food truck.

Mission: The Goals are not the Goal!
The purpose of this festival is to celebrate the beautiful game of soccer and to celebrate the diverse group of people who play the game. Everyone who plays is a winner. Score will not be kept and there will not be referees. Everyone will play the same number of games. The tournament will provide a great opportunity to bring friends, family, and neighbors together to enjoy a festive day of soccer, food, and music.

Ages: All players must be the appropriate age for the age group you are playing in. There will be three different age brackets (30+, 40+, and 50+).

Uniforms: Ridgeville will not provide team jerseys. Teams are responsible for wearing some sort of unified color. Pennies will be available for teams who wear conflicting colors.

Number of Players per Team: There is no maximum, but teams should show up with no less than four players. A healthy roster has five-six players. Extra players are required to ensure that games can continue if unexpected absences occur.

Game Duration: 20 minutes straight. No halftime break. Every team is guaranteed at least three games.

Substitution: Subs must come on at midfield and can happen any time the ball goes out of bounds or there is a stoppage of play.

Kick offs: Kick offs may be kicked in any direction. Ball must be over the mid-line to score. No throw ins, all balls are kicked in from the sidelines. All kicks are indirect. Players must move 5 yards away from any indirect kick.

The Goal Box: No one allowed in the goal box area. If ball stops moving in box, the defensive team can get it. Please do not play “goalie” and hang out in front of your goal. That is not in the spirit of the game.

Slide Tackles: Absolutely NO slide tackles.

Fees: $50 per team.

AYSO Soccer for Kids with Special Needs

Dear parents,

I want to thank you for expressing your interest in Evanston AYSO expanding its VIP soccer program for kids with special needs.  The initial response to our survey has been very encouraging.  The preliminary findings showed the broadest interest among families with children between the ages of 5-8.  It is this age group that we would like to focus on first for an initial program this fall.  Once we are up and running and interest grows, we hope to expand to other age groups as well.

There are a number of administrative steps we are currently working on to launch for the fall season.  This includes the necessary training for VIP coaches, and outreach to ETHS and Northwestern to secure volunteer ‘buddies’ to work with the children each week.

Once we have some more specifics on the fall season, we’d like to hold an informational meeting for all interested families.  Please stay tuned for details later in the summer.  In the meantime, please feel free to share the survey with other families who you think may be interested in participating:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6ZMK25P.

Thanks again for your interest in Evanston AYSO VIP!
