Welcome to the Micro Soccer League!
The Micro Soccer League provides an opportunity for kids to play soccer in the age groups 4-7 years old. Our objective is to foster in each child love for the beautiful game in a relaxed, non-competitive environment. Emphasis is on teaching the true basics, FUN-damental soccer skills, sportsmanship, and team play. This program is not about winning and losing games. Players should be given as many touches on the ball as possible in both practice and games. Small-sided games, such as 3v3 for U5 and U6 and 5v5 for U7 and U8, allow this to happen. Our goal is to develop a love for the game, skills at all player positions and assist each child to reach their best potential.
Teams, coach assignments (our professional coaches will be assigned to teams) games schedules, and standings will be posted on our Micro Soccer League Schedules & Standings page.

- Each player will be given a t-shirt as part of the league registration. The player is responsible for purchasing and wearing red shorts and red socks for the games. You can purchase those here: Shorts and Socks (click on each item and a new window will open for you to order).
- Due to Chicago’s unpredictable climates and variable weather patterns, we normally only determine rain-outs within an hour of game time. Because of the ever changing weather, we play through light rain (drizzle) and when the field is damp. We will not play in when there is lightning, heavy rain, if there are standing puddles on the field, or if the field is too muddy. We will send TeamStuff alerts and email notifications for any classes which are cancelled due to weather or other reasons. Rained out games will be re-scheduled depending on availability of fields or we will be adding time to existing games to make up for lost time.
- Games are fully refundable up to the start of the league, less the registration fee ($25). We cannot give refunds after the 4th week of games or for missed games.
- If your child is sick, please do not attend games. Children in our games are in close contact to other children, our coaches and equipment. Germs spread easily and staying healthy is important. Please use your best discretion when bringing your child to games if they are not feeling well.
- In order to show our appreciation, we would like to give back to our current family members who have helped us grow the program since our beginning. We are excited to announce our “Refer-A-Friend” program for every child that you refer to the club, you will receive $15 (Thrylos Tots U4-U7) credited towards your Olympiacos Chicago account (one time only per player).
