*Training times and locations are subject to change while coaches are being assigned to fall teams. We will do our best to follow this schedule.
When and how will I find out which team my player is on?

We will announce team placements July 28th. All players must be registered before they can be placed on a team. If you notify us within 48 hours of the roster announcement that you choose not to accept your roster spot, Blackhawks will issue a refund. 

What TCSL level will my player participate?

At each age group, we will place our players and teams in the appropriate TCSL level based on our assessment scores and coaches’ evaluations. We challenge our more developed players at the Red and White levels, while the majority of developmental teams in our club (and in our state) participate at the Blue level. We do our best to make multiple even-strength teams at the Blue level.

Can my player play up an age level?

We allow U8s to play up at the U9 level, as this is the earliest age that Blackhawks offer traveling soccer. All developmental players (U9–U10) are expected to register and attend their age appropriate evaluations. In some cases, it may be appropriate for a player to play-up an age group. Please contact Chris with questions.

What additional items will the club collect after my player has been assigned to a team?

After team formation, team managers will collect a player photo for US Club player passes, a medical liability waiver form and birth certificate (proof of age), 

How can I volunteer?

Volunteers drive the continued success of our Developmental Program. Being a team manager is the most common volunteer position. Blackhawks offers Team Managers a $50 discount on registration fees via reimbursement.

When and how often will teams practice?

Teams will usually practice one or two times per week, beginning in August and running through the season. TCSL league games (one per week) are scheduled between early  September and October 10.

What should my player bring to practice?

Players need soccer cleats and indoor shoes, soccer ball (size 4), water bottle, shin guards, and great sportsmanship.

Do teams play in tournaments?

U9 and U10 Teams will participate in the Capital Classic and the Blackhawks Summer Festival. Each team decides individually if they will participate in an additional tournament.

What happens after Evaluations?

To be placed on a Blackhawks team for the Summer season, players need to register. We will email team notifications to the address provided in your Blackhawks SportsConnect account. You will also receive an informational email from your team manager in early March.
