(Lake County, IL): Heart of the City is excited to announce that tryout registration for the 2022-23 season of their youth Elite travel soccer team is now open until May 20th for players born between 2008-2016 and high school boys. High school girls interested in trying out have until May 1st to register.
The program is intended to give promising student-athletes who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity, training, or resources to excel in soccer and develop successful pathways in a career and higher education.
Along with providing youth with professional coaching and top tier equipment, Heart of the City works with students and families to achieve academic success through school performance tracking, field trips to colleges and local businesses, volunteering with local organizations, and health and wellness resources.
For Elite players interested in playing soccer after high school, Heart of the City creates and distributes highlight videos and profiles of players to coaches and recruiters across the country. Elite athletes also have the full support of staff and coaches during the recruitment process and in playing at a collegiate level.
Costs are subsidized and scholarships are available. Tryouts will be held at Waukegan’s Greg Petry Sports Park throughout the month of May. Visit www.heartofthecitysports.org for registration and more information about Heart of the City programs.
