Chicago Fire Elite Development Centers

Chicago Fire Elite Development Centers are unique supplementary training programs for aspiring youth players who are looking to TRAIN LIKE A PRO TO PLAY LIKE A PRO. Working in collaboration with Chicago Fire Academy, our Elite Development Centers offer players a youth professional player experience, using innovative coaching methodology and individual player developmental philosophies that are delivered to academy players based at the SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, IL!

Our Elite Development Centers offer players a unique insight into how an MLS Academy player thinks, feels and acts in mastering their own development both on and off the field of play. Going beyond just the X’s and O’s of player development, our Elite Development programs will integrate the #cf97 PASS (performance advisory and support service) program for a broad-based holistic approach to educating young athletes.

The objective of our Elite Development Centers are for aspiring young players to experience our coaching techniques, philosophies, curriculum, resources and environment, to develop both as a soccer player and as a person, to ultimately enhance their own club and community.

Why Chicago Fire Elite Development Centers?

Through our Elite Development Centers, we aim to provide aspiring players with a holistic training experience, working with the best coaches, with the best players, at the best local facilities, to take their game to the next level. Specifically designed for competitive and elite players aged 8 to 14 years and on a year-round basis, our Elite Development Centers will all be attended by Chicago Fire Academy coaches and scouts, to ensure every session is maximized for individualized player and character development.

All participants will be tested using the same benchmarking criteria as the Academy, to personalize the experience to each individual player's needs. Players will go through the same testing at the end of the program to gauge progress and asses their future development needs.

The unique part of our Elite Development Centers is the inclusion of the #cf97 PASS prorgram, which is a broad based holistic approach to educating young athletes. Going beyond traditional coaching methods, the #cf97 PASS program incorporates the body and mind into the way we approach player development, by personalizing every player's individual development plan, taking their understanding and preparation to a new level.
