Welcome to the Crystal Lake Soccer Federation! Founded in 1976, CLSF is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the development of all levels of soccer players in the McHenry County area.
We at CLSF develop players through our Recreational League, Academy Program, FORCE Competitive Program, as well as a variety of camps and classes. Our goal is to instill a love of the "beautiful game" in your player by teaching sportsmanship, teamwork, skills, tactics and the rules of the game. No matter your players ability, CLSF has you covered!
Our Recreational League holds the Illinois Youth Soccer Five Star Award for excellence in the areas of coaching education, referee development, goal safety, player safety, parent education, and positive behavior.
Registration for Spring 2021 Rec League session will begin sometime in January or February. Please note that if you registered for the Fall/Spring 2020-21 season, you do not have to re-register for the Spring session. Your player will remain on the same team.
Any activity at the Lippold Park Soccer Complex must be conducted under the Return to Play Protocol as outlined above.
