Elite Performance Center (EPC)
  • All Day, June 17th, 2013
  • A 6-Week Summer League Program For ELITE Travel Players (U12-U15 Boys) starting June 17th 2013

  • Location: Toyota Park Turf Field

Chicago Fire Soccer Club team up with Youth Elite Soccer to launch the ELITE PERFORMANCE CENTER (EPC) at Toyota Park in June 2013. The EPC combines week long camps, weekly practice sessions and Super Y games to offer elite players aged U12 to U15 with a unique 6-week summer playing experience.

Players will be selected to participate in the EPC via team try-outs, which will take place on the Turf Field at Toyota Park, 7000 South Harlem Avenue, Bridgeview , Il 60455.


Players selected during try-outs will be offered a place on the EPC and will participate in 6 weeks of structured programming which includes:

-2 weeks of EPC Summer Camps;
-4 weeks of EPC Practices (3 times per week);
-8 to 10 Super Y Games;
-EPC Practice Shirt and Game Day uniform;
-Opportunity to play at Super Y National Finals in Fall 2013.
The cost per player is $600 and families will be expected to provide travel and accommodation to all Super Y regional games.

Why is the EPC a good fit for my son?
The demands of high level soccer players are changing. Most players are moving away from isolated one week summer camp experiences and towards programming which reflects a mini-spring or fall season, and combines weekly practices with games.

What will the EPC practice and camp schedule look like?  
Each player will be expected to participate in practices and camp events. EPC practice sessions will run for 90 minutes x 3 times per week from 6.00pm to 7.30pm or 7.30pm to 9.00pm. Practice nights will depend on field availability and timings of weekend games. EPC Camps will take place during the week of Monday June 17th (pre-season) and Monday July 8th (mid-season) from 9.00am to 12noon or 1.00pm to 4.00pm.


What will the EPC game schedule look like?
EPC will consist of 4 teams (Boys U12, U13, U14 & U15). Teams will participate in Super Y league games, which is operated by USL. The league is organized at 4 neutral venues and teams play between 2 or 3 games per weekend.  


What are the team age group guidelines?

U-12 Player => Boys born on/after 8/1/00.

U-13 Player => Boys born on/after 8/1/99.
