Register Now For Winter 2017 Soccer Classes
It's our 18th season for Bloomington Soccer Youth Instructional classes for young players ages 4-11. The complete schedule of Turf Tigers, Little Kickers and JUNIORS training sessions is listed under Instruction.
We highly recommend you register now as the classes fill-up quickly during the holiday break.
Match Week #5 Underway
It's that time of the season when we start to see some separation in the tables as teams begin to find their respective grooves before the holiday break.
The Premier League's Supreme Team and Rosario JRS secure the top 2 spots in the Sunday tournament bracket. Congratulations to the Supreme Team on winning the regular season championship!
The B League's defending champion IUnited trails Jerry Emery by one at the top, but that should be settled this week as the two square off. Active Others is in third and perfect through 3 games.
Ad Rec Tue teams are chasing perennial favorite Crossfire FC, but Deportivo Mexicanse and Ben Draper have a game in hand and trail by no more than 6 points.
Our U19s are led by MCHCFC, perfect at 4-0, and are chased by 3-0 los jefes.
Champions League is tight at the top with annual powerhouse unCOACHables leading with 23 points, and Ivory Toast, Deportivo Santa Cruz and defending champion Barley Bros all within striking distance.
And a lot of new faces in the U15 league on Fridays, but nothing new about the leaders. Kryptonite is perfect through 4 games, but as they take a bye week, Tiki Taka, Ed Zurface, ORBITFC02/03 and Ferocious Little Kids will look to make gains.
Why Bloomington Soccer?
Professional coaching, a safe environment and dependable facility are just some of the reasons why youth soccer training at the Twin Lakes Rec Center with Bloomington Soccer, makes sense.
And as a licensed US Soccer Federation coach, Chris Doran employs the principles of US Soccer's recommended curriculum for players at every stage of their development.
The result? Your young players enjoy experienced instruction - with age-appropriate expectations, opportunities to apply what they've learned in small-sided games and a desire to keep playing the world's most beautiful game.
Iunited Finishes Unbeaten Spring Season
The Spring B Season finished as it started, with Iunited atop the standings and unbeaten, following a hard-fought battle against 2nd-seeded Djambar in the league final. Congratulations to all of our teams for a tremendous run this spring!
Fake Madrid Wins Spring Championship
It's a return to the podium for one of Bloomington Soccer's perennial power clubs, Fake Madrid, as they sweep the Spring Season with five consecutive wins - ending their indoor campaign with a 2-1 title game win over Ivory Toast.
Kryptonite Wins U14 Tourney Title
A deep bench and plenty of energy - not to mention a few opportunistic goals - helped 2nd seed Kryptonite past a strong Tibro FC squad in the semi-final and defending champion IMPACT, to the U14 tournament championship.
Barley Bros Win Champions League
An impressive streak of top seeds winning tournaments this week was punctuated by Barley Bros's double in the most competitive league of the season. After a brief drought of full-season titles, the men in green captured the regular season and tournament Champions League titles.
UnCOACHables - a regular favorite on Thursday nights - had enough in them to thwart league newcomer Rolls Reus in one semifinal, while Fake Madrid came-up just short in the other semi vs Barley Bros.
Corpus Jurus won the Rec Tournament, so they, along with Rolls Reus, unCOACHables, Fake Madrid and Bloomington Internationals, will join Barley Bros in the Champions League, for fall, 2016.
Fake Madrid Adds Drama & Victories In Tourney
Undefeated and top seed Fake Madrid found themselves down 2 goals in the U18 tournament final with Sweg Team, before unleashing several quick scoring opportunities and stingy defensive posture, to force overtime.
Each team had some near-misses on counter attacks in the 3-v-3 session, but an intentional hand ball by Sweg Team forced them down to 2 players, and Fake Madrid promptly scored the game winner.
Kosiers FC came close in the regular season and Boston Scientific was just as close in the tournament final, but neither team could derail top seeded CrossFire FC from there 3rd consecutive championship.
Fall Champions Logan Pause FC extended succes through the winter in capturing the regular season and tournament titles in the Over 30 League. BROOD battled 2nd seed Bloomington Internationals to victory but couldn't manage a win in the final.
Regular season champions Active Others used a deep bench and capitalized on scoring chances to win the B League tournament, garnering distinction as the first "double winners" in the history of the league.
Parental Guidance made their second consecutive appearance in the final but couldn't find a goal against the top seed. Congratulations to 7th seed Jerry Emery for surprising everyone with a semi-final appearance.
IU Club Soccer - Red arrived for their first game of the Premier League Tournament Sunday night, at 7:45pm. Nearly 3 hours and 2 OT games later, they left the facility as champions.
As the 4th seed they earned a 2-1 win over B'Town Internationals, an OT win over top-seeded Rosario JRS and earned a spot in the final against perennial favorites, unCOACHables.
With 1:12 remaining in the title game, unCOACHables found the match's first goal, and a minute later, IU Club Soccer - Red found the second. A flurry of action in a golden goal OT session of 3-v-3 saw IU score and capture the championship.
