Chicago Blast Soccer Club – Girls Initiative

CALLING ALL GIRLS! The Chicago Blast Soccer Club is continuing its investment in growing the Girls Travel Soccer Program in support of the phenomenal growth of girls soccer in the USA. With such an inspiring National team the future of girls soccer is creating great opportunities for girls of all ages to compete as well as grow as individuals. Specifically, soccer has been great for the development of young women in teaching leadership, teamwork, as well as improving overall athleticism. With another 9% increase in US youth soccer participation this year, soccer is on its way to becoming the number one youth support participated in the USA to join its status with the rest of the world.

The Chicago Blast Soccer Club has always valued the development of the girls but with this undeniable growth the need to do more as a club is evident.  To support this growth the club is willing to make a multi-year investment in significantly growing our girl’s program. Over the next five years, the Chicago Blast will invest in the girls program by:

–          Increasing the numbers of the teams to create more opportunities for playing time and competitive levels

–          2-3 dedicated workshops per season (Fall, Winter, Spring) to focus on the development of all the girls in the program

–          Additional tournaments for competitive teams

–          Opportunities to play with the competitive boys if requested by the player

–          Written Soccer evaluations at the end of each season for each player


This will be a multi-year investment by the Chicago Blast in your player. I will be personally overseeing this initiative and will ensure the upmost quality for each of these players. I will ensure that our players have fun and that excitement for soccer continues to grow in our club.

Our coaching staff is the best player development staff in the area.  The girls Technical Director will be Milos Mamula who is highly regarded in the area for technically developing players as well as thoughtfully teaching tactically critical lessons early on in the development of our players. Our training has produced some of the top boys teams in the region and nationally – our goal is develop our girls program to the same status!
