2019 Illinois FC Spring Invite

5/1 Schedule Update- Please note that due to large amounts of rain all grass fields have been closed.  We have secured 4 additional TURF fields, and will now play all games on TURF fields. However, please understand that in order to do this we had to extend our field usage, starting earlier and ending later, as well as make some modifications to game lengths at older age groups.  All teams are still scheduled for 3 games.
