What is the Midwest FC?

The Glen Ellyn and Wheaton Park Districts have cooperatively created the Midwest FC travel soccer program for boys ages U15 and older and girls ages U14 and older. The Midwest FC strives to provide a positive, competitive environment to produce soccer players who have the desire to compete at a high level. Teams will train locally (Glen Ellyn and Wheaton Park District fields and facilities), participate in showcase tournaments, and licensed strength and conditioning trainers will work with all teams to create well-rounded soccer players. Teams compete across the Chicagoland area and all teams are trained and coached by a member of Future Pros, our professional training staff.

The majority of players reside in either Glen Ellyn or Wheaton. Non-residents are welcome to participate as well. Teams will be selected based on the skills and abilities of the player who attend tryouts.

Location of practices and games will be dependent on where players on a team reside. If there is an even split of Glen Ellyn and Wheaton residents on a team, then half of the practices and games will be in Glen Ellyn and half will be in Wheaton. Parks and facilities will include but are not limited to: Ackerman Park (Glen Ellyn), Memorial Field (Glen Ellyn), Seven Gables (Wheaton), Graf Park (Wheaton), or the Central Athletic Complex (Wheaton).
