The Chicago Kickers Soccer Club was established in 1958. The club was originally based in Chicago on Irving Park Road. The club was reorganized and moved to the American Aid Society in Lake Villa where a Clubhouse, Patio and two Championship Soccer Fields were opened in 2005. The Kickers are a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to promoting soccer for youth and adult players of both genders. Our Youth program teams compete in the Young Sportsman's Soccer League, Northern Illinois Soccer League and Illinois Women's Soccer League. Youth teams also compete in various tournaments and indoor leagues. Our youth teams are coached by experienced players and coaches and trained by Chicago Fire players. We feel that the coaching and training provided is of the highest quality and provides a solid foundation for player development. The Men's First Team competes in the Metropolitan Soccer League. The Men's Over 30 & 40 Teams compete in the Tri-County Soccer League and Men's and Women's under 23 Teams compete in ISSA Managed Summer Leagues. Many of our players have gone on to collegiate, adult amatuer and professional soccer careers. MLS veterans Frank Klopas, Brian McBride, Dave Dir, Mark Simpson, and Tommy Soehn have all worn Kicker's Red & White. Kicker great Adolf Bachmeier, who captained the US National team in 1970, was inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2002. Our Adult teams have won League, State, Regional and National Amateur Championships (1966, 1968, 1970, 1975). Our youth teams have also won many league, tournament, state and regional championships.
