The Streamwood Magic: History

Wednesday, June 7
The Streamwood Magic began in 1999 as one All-Star Tournament Team, participating in 3 tournaments that summer. Girls from all levels of the Streamwood Park District In-House program represented the team. In 2001, we expanded the program to be strictly travel and the team logo was designed by our very own player Liz Erickson and is still used to this day. We formed teams at the 14U and 16U levels and hosted our own tournament. As a fledgling program, we made some progress. In 2002, we expanded the program again, adding a 12U level. We traveled throughout the suburbs, playing some tough teams and holding our own. All three levels represented the Magic in a tournament in Bloomington, IL. 2003 brought on yet another addition to our program - an 18U team. All four levels participated in a tournament in Minnesota as well as in various local tournaments. We hosted our own tournament for the third year in a row. Our program began to get recognized. In 2004, we unfortunately needed to give up our 18U but we added a second team at our 14U level. Our organization went back to the Bloomington tournament and did well. Our teams proved to be very successful throughout the summer. Thanks to the dedication of our coaches, players and committee, our program has made a lot of progress over the last few years and we hope to keep continuing to improve.
