A new era in Glenview youth soccer starts now. Titan FC has officially launched to provide enhanced player development opportunities for Glenview residents. The program will include both boys and girls teams ages U8 through U11. "Titans FC will provide an opportunity for the children of Glenview to participate in a program that is all about player development. We have a unique curriculum, professional coaching, and access to outstanding facilities," states Martin Duffy, Director of Coaching for Titans FC. Duffy has over 20 years coaching experience, is a former High School Varsity coach, holds several advanced coaching licenses, and has been president of Illinois Youth Soccer Academy for the past 15 years. The club's primary outdoor fields will be in Glenview at the Loyola Academy complex conveniently located in the Glen.
Titans FC will partner with FC United for its player development process and Titan FC will be the primary feeder club for Glenview residents who desire to participate in FC United for ages U12-U18. FC United is the leading competitive youth soccer club on the North Shore, participating in local, regional, national, and international tournaments. FC United partners closely with the Chicago Fire to design and constantly improve its player development process, which will be used at Titans FC. "We are excited about the launch of Titans FC. We have a significant number of Glenview residents currently participating in FC United, and this program will provide a strengthened player development process for children ages U8-U11. The coaching and facilities are top-notch and we are delighted to have a strong partner in the Glenview community," states Roy Wiggemansen, who leads FC United.

Trevian Soccer Club is a non-for-profit soccer organization dedicated to providing an environment that fosters a passion for soccer. By building a sense of teamwork, confidence, fitness, and individual skills, players in the TSC will achieve success both on and off the field.
The club is split into two branches based on age groups—the Trevian side of our club offers age groups from Under 8 to Under 12 for both boys and girls. FC United is the older branch of our club, and it offers teams from the Under 13 to Under 18 age groups.
Teams are selected at tryouts, which are held in late May and early June. Current Trevian players do not receive preference for placement on next year’s teams, but rather teams are selected based on a player’s skill level, which is evaluated at tryouts by the Trevian Tryout Committee.
Our program is split into three seasons—fall, winter, and spring. For fall and spring seasons, Trevian teams will practice twice a week. Practice schedules are set about a month before each season, but spring practices are usually held at the same time as your fall practices. Teams will play ten and eight league games per season, respectively. Boys usually play on Saturdays while girls’ games are usually held on Sundays. Additionally, all teams will play in at least one tournament in the fall, and depending on which team your child is placed, some teams will compete in other tournaments as well. For the winter season, Trevian teams will practice once a week and play games in one of our in-house leagues.
All Trevian coaches are paid, professional coaches who hold USSF (United States Soccer Federation) and/or NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) licenses. The coaches are experienced in coaching younger players, and many have playing experience at the collegiate, semi-professional, and professional levels. Coaches are hired by the club following an extensive interview process that includes contacting references and background checks. The coaching staff is supervised and evaluated by the Executive Director and Director of the Trevians.
Club fees include the following: Field fees, indoor costs, coaches, administrative fees, insurance costs, two practices a week for outdoor and one practice a week for indoor, outdoor league registration, game referees, and one tournament per year.
