Who we are:
The Chicago Powerstrikers is a competitive youth travel soccer club, with boys and girls teams participating in the Illinois Women's Soccer League (IWSL) and the Young Sportsmen's Soccer League (YSSL). For the 2021-22 playing season, the club has girls teams for the 2003, 2009, and 2010 birth years, and boys teams for the 2006 and 2009 birth years, but opportunities are always available to form additional teams.
We train and play our home games at Northeastern Illinois University, and draw players from the diverse northwest side neighborhoods of Chicago and nearby suburbs.
Our club was launched nearly 20 years ago by parents with a passion for soccer and player development. It has grown since then, with new teams formed by parents who obtained coaching licenses through US Soccer and worked under the guidance of experienced club staff. Throughout this time, the club has consistently developed teams and players that compete at some of the top levels of youth soccer in Illinois.
To teach our players to love the game of soccer through positive and dedicated instruction and to give them the skills they need to play in high school and beyond.
We are an organization of parent volunteers dedicated to the athletic and social development of our children through the game of soccer.
