Who are the Glen Ellyn Lakers?

The Glen Ellyn Lakers are a competitive travel soccer organization operated by the Glen Ellyn Park District. The Glen Ellyn Travel Soccer Organization (GETSO) has identified its mission as the need to provide a positive environment, which encourages the development of skilled soccer players who enjoy, understand, and are motivated to be successful in the game of soccer.

Glen Ellyn Lakers teams are trained and coached by the Future Pros professional training company. The Lakers offer U8 through U14 for boys who currently play in the Young Sportsmen Soccer League (YSSL) and U8 through U13 for girls who currently play in the Illinois Women's Soccer League (IWSL).

Players will then transition to the Midwest FC program which is for U15 and older for boys and U14 and older for girls. More information on the Midwest FC can be viewed here.
