Travel League

In addition to our recreation league, HOTC offers select soccer opportunities in a year-long travel league with fall and spring seasons called North Central United. This program is for the boy or girl who wishes to move beyond recreational play and is looking for more competitive opportunities and additional training. Teams compete in the top divisions in their leagues throughout Illinois in addition to being afforded the opportunity to play at college showcases and other tournaments.

 

We believe travel soccer should be a platform for development, improvement, and fun, so we provide players with every opportunity to improve. 

Although playing time will not be equal among players, and specific amounts of playtime cannot be guaranteed, every player will play in each game to ensure constructive feedback and development.

Because the Heart of the City soccer model places a significant emphasis on preparing young people academically, we expect all our players to complete homework prior to NCU athletic training. We also collect report cards throughout each season from each player and review these for subject difficulties, overall grade point average, and attendance or truancy issues.

Tryouts are held a minimum of one-month prior to each new season. After these team auditions take place, players are notified of their team placement. Players in this league are divided by age onto teams to maintain alignment with Illinois Youth soccer and US Soccer Federation standards. This also helps our young athletes to develop faster while increasing safety conditions and decreasing the potential for injury.

All new players must complete a uniform order sheet, the IYSA Medical Waiver Form and the US Club Medical Waiver Form, have their picture taken for league passes, provide a copy of their birth certificate, and sign our Code of Conduct.

There is a $100 discount applied to registration if payment is received in full at the time of registration. If paying in installments, monthly recurring credit card payments will be set-up. These continue until registration cancellation.
