COVID-19 Update



The IDPH is continuing with its Tier 3 Mitigation for the week of December 7th. The programing will continue to pause the indoor programing at the present time and assess on a weekly basis the next steps based on IDPH guidelines.

Any training time that will be missed due to IDPH regulations will be added to our current playing season, as well as extending the playing season.

The Staff continues to appreciate the support from the players and families and will keep you updated on a weekly basis. Stay safe and healthy!

Thank you,

Ivan Heredia and Staff



Greetings Lil Kickers, Skilz and Gecko Parents,

It is with a heavy heart that we must send another email in regards to a program pause.

Per the new Illinois Tier 3 Mitigation, our programs and activities must pause effective Friday November 20, 2020.  Lil Kickers, Skilz and Gecko Goalkeeping will be temporarily suspending all programs.  This pause will last 2 weeks.  At the end of the 2 weeks, we will reassess the guidelines and state recommendations.

The remaining sessions (1 for Wednesday classes and 2 for Saturday classes) will resume after the pause to complete Fall 2.   We will send out more communication as it becomes available to us from the state.

Everyone stay safe and healthy.  We are in this together and look forward to welcoming everyone back in the near future.
