WELCOME TO 2013 BOLINGBROOK ANNUAL LABOR DAY SOCCER FESTIVAL
Our 2013 Soccer Festival is a great way to kick off the season. In 2012 we had over 155 teams participate in the soccer festival. Every team is assured 3 games. The games start on Friday, usually with local teams playing, then a full schedule on Saturday and Sunday. We hold Monday, Labor Day as a rain day in case of severe weather earlier in the tournament. We hope you will join us and make our Soccer Festival a fun filled weekend with good competitive soccer.
The Chicago Fire and the Chicago Red Stars professional soccer team are scheduled to make appearances at our tournament event. Having our professional men's and women's teams sending folks from their club make it a great way to get to meet professional athletes and provide great experiences for all players.
We have competitive play at every level, in some age groups we have an upper level and lower level to ensure good competition. The point system for this tournament encourages playing time for all players, with 6 points for a win, 3 points for a tie, and 1 point for a 3 goal differential (instead of a shutout), as well as a point scored for each goal (up to 3). This format encourages coaches and managers to play all their players if they get ahead of an opponent by more than 3 goals. We view this tournament as a way for the players, coaches and parents to start the season with some good healthy competition.
The fields are located just north of I-55 off of Weber Road in Bolingbrook IL. Last year we had teams from Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, and Indiana participate. There are a variety of local things to do close by, and the city of Chicago is 30-40 minutes from Bolingbrook. We also have made arrangements with several hotel groups for a discounted rate for those traveling overnight for the tournament, click on the link below for more information
We offer multiple team discounts for clubs sending more than one team as well as returning team discounts.
