2019 Fall Youth Soccer League
The Village of Hawthorn Woods and Hawthorn Woods Elite Soccer are proud to team up to offer youth soccer for children in grades pre-k (the year before entering kindergarten) through 6th. Our leagues and camps provide instruction to build upon each player’s skills in a recreation-based environment where players learn by playing together on the field.
