Our Youth Development Program provides a fun, safe and developmentally appropriate soccer environment for 3-7 year olds where they will learn appropriate skills to build a foundation for the game. We are focused on improving your child as a player and a person. The program uses a variety of fun games to delight and engage kids in physical activity while taking lots of touches of the soccer ball. The curriculum is professionally designed to promote player development, physical fitness, develop motor skills, and boost self-confidence personally as a player and with a soccer ball. The children will be trained by Olympiacos Chicago USSF Licensed coaches.
Our Tots Soccer Program includes training & small-sided games as part of its curriculum.
Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult – this is not a drop-off program.

Due to Chicago’s unpredictable climates and variable weather patterns, we normally only determine rain-outs within an hour of class time. Because of the ever changing weather, we play through light rain (drizzle) and when the field is damp. We will not play in when there is lightning, heavy rain, if there are standing puddles on the field, or if the field is too muddy. We will send TeamStuff alerts and email notifications for any classes which are cancelled due to weather or other reasons. Rained out classes will be made up at the end of the session depending on availability of fields (up to two make-ups) or we will be adding time to existing sessions to make up for lost sessions.
Classes are fully refundable up to the start of the class, less the registration fee ($25). We cannot give refunds after the 4th week of class or for missed classes. However, you are welcome to attend any other regularly scheduled class with available spots. Please note the majority of our weekend classes reach capacity, so we may not be able to accommodate multiple weekend make-ups. Please email us to confirm your spot before attending a make-up class.
If you are unable to attend a class or your class is rained out, you may participate in any other regularly scheduled class for your child’s age group during that session. For classes which are rained out we will offer up to 2 additional weeks of makeup sessions for everyone enrolled. If more than 2 classes are rained out in a season, you may attend a makeup class at another day and time. No refunds are given for rainouts. Please email us to confirm your spot before attending a make-up class.
If your child is sick, please do not attend classes. Children in our classes are in close contact to other children, our coaches and equipment. Germs spread easily and staying healthy is important. Please use your best discretion when bringing your child to class if they are not feeling well. You can always do a makeup class once they are feeling better.
In order to show our appreciation, we would like to give back to our current family members who have helped us grow the program since our beginning. We are excited to announce our “Refer-A-Friend” program for every child that you refer to the club, you will receive $15 (Tots Soccer U4-U7) credited towards your Olympiacos Chicago account (one time only per player).
You can register for more than (1) training session by clicking on the registration links below for all the days you would like to register your player for. For example, your player can register for 1, 2 or all training sessions available.
