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.
The CLSF Board of Directors approved a plan for proceeding with the Spring Outdoor Soccer season. The plan was developed in order to comply with the mandates of the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois Youth Soccer Association, our affiliate soccer governing body. Key changes to the guidelines going into effect for the Spring Session are as follows:
Players must be masked when participating in a game or practice session. There are no exceptions. Masks must always cover the mouth and nose. Players who are not actively participating in a game or practice session, i.e., are on the sidelines, may remove their mask if they are able to maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet.
All spectators ages 2 and older must wear masks when entering the Lippold Park Soccer Complex. Once inside the designated spectator areas, face coverings must be worn if one is not able to maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet from others who are not members of the same family. This includes when walking to and from the playing fields to the parking area and/or restrooms.
