Team Chicago Announces 2020-2021 Coaching Staff and Schedule!

Participants, Parents, and Staff -

I am pleased to announce our coaching staff and directors that will be working together to follow the mission of Team Chicago Soccer Club:
“To produce players and leaders who positively impact their teams and the world around them. To challenge learning and development through intellectual, technical, and physical rigor while providing ongoing individual feedback and support. To create technically and tactically sophisticated players for college, professional, and national teams in an environment that is fun, safe, ethical, and respectful.”

We have built a team to ensure that there is oversight and accountability. We will be building a club curriculum to encourage cumulative knowledge and skills.

Marcelo Galvao – Team Chicago Technical Director and WAA Soccer Director
Albert Martin – Director of College Placement
Freddie King – High School U14-U19 Director
Matthew Suggitt – Youth U11-U13
Magno Barreto – Academy U7-U10
Ed Leon – Team Chicago Juniors U4-U14 (WAA Recreational Soccer to be re-branded in 2021)

In addition to overseeing the age groups above, Directors will also coach and may even coach outside their area of supervisory responsibility. This will allow them to view and access all levels within the organization and provide feedback to coaches and other directors.
