Here are some testimonials of what players and parents have to say about Olympiacos Soccer Club Chicago. We value your feedback so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
As an older adult, I have really enjoyed playing with this club and many others. The club has provided a very inviting / warm environment to myself and many others. The club also provides a very exciting and competitive environment with my fellow teammates and opponents. At the end of a match, win or lose, the club and teammates are always very respectful (family-like) and have us looking forward to our next match. I hope to play with these teammates and this club for a long long time.

The coaches are all great and truly care about the kids and teaching the game of soccer. The communication to the players and parents has been great as well.
ALEX PAPADOPOULOS PARENT OLYMPIACOS - PARK RIDGE January 20, 2023
Niko loves coming to soccer practice and he loves playing games. His exposure to a variety of coaching styles through the years has made him a more well rounded, knowledgeable and flexible kid. His ability to explore and play multiple positions on the field has shaped him to be a stronger and more versatile player. Not only does he get the exercise he needs physically… he exercises his mind and emotions simultaneously. We feel very fortunate and proud to be associated with Olympiacos. BIG bonus… we are so fortunate to have established such strong and long lasting friendships with so many of the Olympiacos families as well!! This organization has been such a positive experience for our son and our entire family on so many different levels. Thank you to everyone (coaches and administration alike) for their dedication and their obvious commitment to maintaining the high standards of Olympiacos.
SOCRATES HARISIADIS PARENT OLYMPIACOS - PARK RIDGE January 20, 2019
Olympiacos is the only soccer club that has truly challenged my son to be a better player on the field and a better person off the field. He has learned graceful losing, humble winning, and to be constantly challenging himself to be better for himself and his team.
DANA HENDREN PARENT OLYMPIACOS - PARK RIDGE January 20, 2019
We’ve been playing and been part of the Olympiacos Chicago Family since our son was 3. He’s 8 now and it’s been the best decision we’ve ever made. We feel our son has grown and continues to grow as a strong soccer player. He has learned skills that he can carry into life that are both valuable on and off the field…..fairness, hard work, determination, caring, and never give up. We have met amazing teammates, friends, and families who truly care and help each other out.
Thank you Olympiacos Chicago for all you do!
ANGELA NINIS PARENT OLYMPIACOS - PARK RIDGE January 20, 2019
“This program is constructed very well. The coaches are very friendly but assertive with the kids. They work on individual ball control, and also team work. My son absolutely loves coming here and wishes soccer was twice a week instead of once.”
Acia Bradshaw PARENT OLYMPIACOS - PARK RIDGE January 14, 2019
“Professional coaches, structured training and challenging games, this is all helpful in making my son a more well rounded player.”
DANA HENDREN PARENT OLYMPIACOS - PARK RIDGE June 14, 2017
” It is evident that Olympiacos Chicago is run by a dedicated, passionate and talented group of coaches and trainers who care about our children, give them each a fair and equal chance to thrive, push them to their limits in a motivating and encouraging way, and above all, they teach the kids that even though winning is great and exciting, having fun in the process while learning is REALLY what it’s all about.”
ANGIE HARISIADIS PARENT OLYMPIACOS - PARK RIDGE June 12, 2017
“We are very happy with the Olympiacos Chicago soccer club. My son has been with Thrylos for two years, and is very excited for the travel season to begin. I think the coaches are amazing! And the club is very well organized. I also like the sense of unity, family, and pride that the club offers. Our kids are very lucky to be a part of such a great group.”
CHRISTINA MALLIOS PARENT OLYMPIACOS - PARK RIDGE June 9, 2017
“My son has been in the program for 3 years. During that time he has not only learned how to play the game – he has learned to love the game.”
ANTHONY RILEY PARENT OLYMPIACOS - PARK RIDGE June 9, 2017
” I have played for Olympiacos Chicago about a year now and it is by far the best club I have played for. Ever since I joined this club I felt welcomed right away. The coaches are really committed to helping us in any way possible. I have improved a lot more this year with this club than any other year with any other club because of the amazing coaches here at Olympiacos Chicago. Thank you very much for helping me improve my skills.”
Haris Pabedinskas PLAYER OLYMPIACOS - PLAINFIELD May 24, 2017
“Being a Olympiacos player means to me passion, discipline and family. I love my coach and my teammates. When I started playing at 7 years old I didn’t even know how to kick a soccer ball. Coach Jesus helped me grow to where I am right now. It’s awesome being a part of Olympiacos the best team in the world.”
Xavier Garcia PLAYER OLYMPIACOS - PLAINFIELD May 18, 2017
“Olympiacos Soccer Club is the best soccer club our son has ever had. Our son Haris U14, U16 has been with the club for a year now, and we have nothing but good things to say. Haris and we, parents, are happy with his and the teams he is playing for results of this season and look forward to even better seasons in the future. We appreciate the time, dedication, experience, and values the coaches of this club share with our kids. The hard work, persistence, respect, and modesty are the club’s strategies and values that make our kids willing to be better players on a soccer field and also better human beings in their daily life. We love Olympiacos Soccer Club and we are honored that our son is a part of it.”
Raimonda & Tomas Pabedinskas PARENTS Olympiacos - Plainfield May 4, 2017
“I am so very pleased and thankful for the progress my son has made since joining Olympiacos. I cannot believe how much he has improved! I deeply appreciate the coaches working with him, providing individualized attention, and taking a real personal interest in his development. When Coach Mario pushes the players to train as hard as they can and tells them that he believes in them and that his goal for every player is to play high school and, someday, college soccer, it means so much to them. My son’s self-esteem, confidence and passion for soccer have grown since joining the club. He wears the red and white on and off the field with pride!”
Lambros C. Chrones, M.D. PARENT Olympiacos - Plainfield May 4, 2017
“Olympiacos Chicago is one of the best things that happened to my son Noah. He used to be on a travel team for less than 3 months just to come to home bored to death. Watching him losing interest for soccer that he loved so much – I quickly took charge. Noah needed something more than just practice dead ball soccer drills; he needed a “sense of belonging & responsibility” like being part of a team and that is exactly what he found with this club. Coach Niko is the best coach we could wish for. John and Angela are the right people for the right job. We got more than what we wished for. Thank You sincerely!”
