Good day ERA FC Families,

We hope you and your family are doing very well!

We miss all our ERA FC Players and Families. The ERA FC is right there with you. 

We can't wait to get back to do what we are best at, running profesional soccer programs.

As soon as the stay at home order lifts we'll be back to our regularly scheduled programs. 

ERA FC message to our players: 

  • "PLAYERS CONTINUE PRACTICING FOOTSKILLS-ERA AND JUGGLING ON YOUR OWN".
  • "GET READY FOR SPRING SOCCER 2020 IN JULY-AUGUST SUMMER 2020".

 

As of now, ERA FC is still planning to offer the spring soccer program including practices and games as last discussed,

with a planned mid June kickoff in small groups in regards to training and summer league official games starting in July 2020. 

 

It's game time!  Due to recent news of hundreds of teams being left without a place to play, we've decided to volunteer our time to help our clubs put together a league like not other.  

We are currently compiling ideas from all directors to organize a league run by top clubs and professionals in the Chicagoland area. 

  •  3 levels
  •  Knockout final tournament
  •  Top and bottom two teams will move up and or down.
  •  Coaches will select top players to compete in a hosted All Star game at end of season.

We understand that the safety of our players, families and coaches are first and foremost on everyone's mind but we must be ready to move forward and as quickly as possible.  

We are projecting a league start date ss soon as the stay at home order lifts in June or July to August, 2020.  Times and dates will vary depending on stay-at-home order.

 

Obviously, decisions outside of our control including the extension of the stay-at-home order, public health safety orders or any other rulings from either US Youth Soccer or US Soccer could further delay the start of the competitions. Our main priority is the safety of our athletes, coaches, staff and supporters so until we have full clearance we will not return to play, BUT we are planning for the most optimistic outcome and a return to the pitch this summer.

 

We want to assure all our members that we will provide all suspended programs in full force as soon as our programs are allowed to resume.

We will post brief training instructions on daily basis on erafc.us website. Please look out for them.

 

We are trying to keep everyone updated in regards to ERA FC sports activities.

Illinois Youth Soccer has suspended all sports activities until May 31,2020. We will follow their rules and guidelines.

The ERA FC has suspended all activities through May 31, effective immediately. 

 

  • We anticipate sending out a separate email within the next 4 weeks regarding the player registration 2020-2021 specifics.
  • While managing the present, we must look at planning for the fall. We will introduce 2020-2021 registration link soon.
  • We are not asking for a financial commitment at this time. We just need to know if your son/daughter plan to return in the fall. 
  • If your player will not be returning, please let your coach know ASAP.  
  • We are still waiting for guidance from our leagues on when and how we will be allowed to have tryouts. 

We know many of you may have questions moving forward. We encourage you to send them to manager@erafc.us

We will collect them and publish responses on a regular basis.

Thank you for your cooperation to protect our soccer family,

ERA FC
