“Soccer Made Simple” Instructional Camp

Granite City Elks will play host to the “Soccer Made Simple” instructional camp this summer.  The camp will cater to all boys & girls entering kindergarten through 8th grade in the fall of 2015.

July 20th-23rd, 2015  


Recreational Soccer League Practice

All Recreational Soccer players on a team 2008 and above are invited to a league wide practice sponsored by the Elks Midwest Soccer Club.  We are changing the format and limiting the number of teams to only the 2008 and above. We will try to incorporate the younger teams in the fall.

The practices will be held at the Elks facilities on Wednesday nights from 6 – 8 pm. The practice will be broken up into 2 time slots 6:00 to 6:45 and 7:00 to 7:45.

The 11 v 11 field under the lights will be split up in to 16 sections numbered from 1 to 16. Each team will be assigned a field section.  Coaches that come with their team, will work with their team.  Any additional assistant coaches who are available, may be assigned to work with a group whose coach is unavailable.  A drill will be taught to the coaches and players by one of the Elks Midwest coaches. The rec coach will then run the drill with their assigned group. The Elks Midwest Coaches will rotate between sections, so that each group will learn several drills during the practice.

Players should go straight to the field section they are assigned and be ready to practice. See Field_Map for sections. Please bring a soccer ball.

As the Elks Soccer Club enters it’s 33rd year we are extremely pleased with the status of our program.

Most satisfying of all our accomplishments throughout the past years is our commitment to the youth of Granite City, Illinois and surrounding areas. That commitment is to provide a positive soccer experience and prepare our young athletes with the skills necessary to compete with excellence.

This organization is also very proud that we have been able to maintain a low cost to the player and his/her family with high-end results because the coaches and managers remain volunteers.

During the past years, our teams and players have not only been successful at State Cup, but many other tournaments throughout the country, often bringing home first and second place wins.

We are only able to do this because of volunteers. Men and women who have come back to our community and want to give back some of what they received. It is for this reason that I am so proud to be part of the Elks tradition of commitment to the youth and community of Granite City, Illinois.

We want to thank all of those people who have given their time and talent to this organization over the past years. And encourage all of you to reach out to other talented people who have benefited from this program and ask them to come home and volunteer their time. It is in this way that this organization will remain strong and effective for the future athletes of Granite City.
