WHAT IS SOCCER IN THE COMMUNITY?
Soccer In The Community (SITC) is the youth programming department of the Chicago Fire Soccer Club. The objective of SITC is to provide year-round, professional coaching and resources to youth soccer organizations, players and coaches.
The Chicago Fire and Soccer In The Community has partnered with Illinois Youth Soccer (IYSA) to become the 'Official Recreational Camp Provider' of the state association. In doing so, the Chicago Fire Soccer Club and IYSA aims to positively impact every level of soccer in Illinois.
SITC is separated from the Academy and Chicago Fire Juniors.
