Green White News
Super proud of this news about Green White Soccer Club. As a lifelong member, and current board member and coach, I've always known Green White was a 5-star program, but it's nice to see official Illinois and US soccer authorities agree. My book about Green White's history ("Gruen Weiss Vor! 60 Years of Green White Soccer") will be out in about a month. All proceeds from the sales of that book will go to the club.
Green White has been named a 5-star competitive program (one of only 5 clubs so honored). The Illinois 5-Star Competitive Club Recognition recognizes the top Illinois Youth Soccer member league clubs for promoting coaching education, referee development, goal safety, kid safety, and positive sideline behavior.
Green White Girls Rec League has been named a 5-star program (one of only five in the Midwest region). The 5-Star US Youth Soccer Region II Recreational Program Recognition is awarded to a US Youth Soccer member recreational organization from the 14 states in the Midwest Region that promotes coaching education, referee development, goal safety, kid safety, and positive sideline behavior.
