As you can see, there is still a vacant position on our board and we would appreciate any and all help. Please email [email protected] with the subject line “FCG Board” if you are willing to volunteer (or nominate a spouse). We are still looking for volunteers to line fields if you are willing (those that have contacted, we will have an announcement soon).


There have been changes due to lack of athletes for certain teams. Due to this all of our teams are grouped by development level and will be coed. This will allow us the opportunity to allow all players to benefit from playing and training, but will cost us in competitiveness as some of our players may be a year younger than our opponents. Due to this, the teams have been divided as described below and your coach is included. There were some last minute coaching switches; we apologize for any inconvenience or lack of communication. The coaches are being given their rosters now with those that have registered on gotsport. Please register on gotsport to be contacted by your coach. If you have not been contacted by your coach and have registered in gotsport, please email us at [email protected].

*Due to school year vs birth year, some 8th graders will qualify as U15 but can still play in our league.

**Lil Warriors is a new program that we are trying. This will consist of 2 practices a week, but there is no league for club soccer in the area (at this age level). So these players can sign up to receive 2 training sessions a week. We recommend joining the YMCA recreational league as well to provide game time experience.


The above practice times have been provided by your coach. There are still club training sessions that you are invited to with technical sessions being offered both Monday and Tuesday.

All game times have been posted on our website for Illowa league games. Tournaments, scrimmages, and fundraising will be discussed at the team level between coaches and players.


There is a club-wide fundraiser to purchase balls, cones, and other equipment for our teams. This will be a car wash held on August 21st at Metropolitan Auto Sales (515 E. Main St. Galesburg). Car washes are $5 and coaches will have vouchers to buy/sell and will gather volunteers.


We are all still learning the new registration system using gotsport. If you have had trouble registering or paying, please try again (and then contact us if you still have trouble). If you have lost the link, here it is: https://system.gotsport.com/programs/862370C98. Those paying by check or cash, please turn your money into your coach, our treasurer Matthew Jones-Rhoades, or myself.


If you have any other questions, comments, or are willing to volunteer, please reach out to us!


Go WARRIORS!!!
