Friday Night Tournaments at North Ave Beach!



Summer soccer doesn't get any better than this! We're bringing back our popular tournaments to Friday nights! This time we're playing right on the beachfront - steps away from Castaways at North Ave and the lake!

Do you love the beach? Do you love playing soccer and then taking a dip in the lake? Of course you do (although you probably don't get to do it that often)!

Starting mid May, we are hosting a weekly 5v5 coed tournament on a purpose built arena right on North Ave beach, steps off the bridge over Lakeshore Dr.

We're very excited to get these tournaments back up and running - there's a few new additions to the details, be sure to check them out below.

- There are spots for 4 teams of 5 people (plus 2 subs each team).
- Games are 5v5 on an 'all purpose' surface.
- The day of the game, we'll create teams randomly from the RSVP list.
- If you'd like to play with friends, either RSVP for them as guests or leave a comment below.
- We'll track the scores, everyone gets at least one hour of play.
- This will be a great time for playing soccer in an ideal location with friendly soccer players in Chicago.

A win gets you 3 points, 1 point for a tie, and 0 for a loss. The 1st and 3rd place finals are decided by points, then goal difference, then goals scored. If either final is tied after regulation, we move straight to penalties.

7.00 - A v D
7.15 - B v C
7.30 - A v C
7.45 - D v B
8.00 - A v B
8.15 - C v D
8.30 - 3rd place final
8.45 - Championship

We do not accept payment at the field. There will be a waiting list available.

The cost is $13 per player - refunds are only available if you change your RSVP to "NO" a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Otherwise you'll have to find someone to take your place.

      Ed, it is a hard surface. Right next to the beach, so there is plenty of sand nearby. Join us, this is going to be a blast!

    Is this a good place for Intermediate level players? Or is it very competitive? I want to start playing soccer again, just a little nervous :)

      Hope you can make it Dago, be sure to RSVP before you come out to save a spot. We play with hockey goals and will go over the rules before we play.

      Shout with any other questions, thanks!
