Friendship Request

One mutual friendship request will be honored for players in an Pre-K instructional league, Pinto baseball and 8U softball, grades 1 and 2 soccer. A request form must be completed. Guidelines are listed on the form. Request deadlines are the same as registration deadlines (not early bird).

Friendship Request


Without a solid volunteer base, hundreds of local children would miss out on the experience of playing on a league team for soccer, baseball, softball and basketball. Please consider giving some time to the children of the community. You can make a difference!

Volunteers are used for the following positions: League Coordinators, Managers/Head Coaches, Coaches/Assistant Coaches, Tournament Team Managers (Baseball/Softball/Soccer).


Looking for Umpires and Referees

Applicants must be at least 16 years of age. Contracts are available at the Simkus Recreation Center and at  csparks.org. Call 630-784-6100 for further information.

Registration Info

Participant Code of Conduct

By registering your child you agree to comply with the Participant Code of Conduct. It will be discussed by the coach at the preseason parent meeting. 

Meet and Greet

The meet and greet is a set time where players, parents, and coaches meet each other and hand out any necessary information, and in some cases will receive their uniforms.

Player Evaluation

Players get rated based on each skill set for that particular sport. All players are welcome but new players and players who are playing up a level are required to attend.

Register by Grade – soccer and tee ball leagues

Players are to be registered for the grade the player will be in for 2018/2019 school year. Preschoolers must be 4 years old by program start date. Participants can participate in Instructional Tee Ball and Instructional Soccer without conflict.

Register by Age – baseball and softball

Registration is by age. Baseball players are to be registered based on their age as of April 30, 2019. Softball players are to be registered based on their age as of December 31, 2018.

Registration After the Deadline

Players placed on a wait list are not guaranteed placement on a team. If you register before team formation the player will be moved off the wait list if there are enough to form an additional team. However, if you register after team formation, or if another team cannot be formed, placement will only be done when a team or teams are below the established maximum number of team participants. Players will not be added to any team one week prior to the first scheduled game.

Playing Up

Playing up is not allowed for instructional soccer or tee ball. For all other leagues playing up is allowed by one age or grade level but the following process must be adhered to:

  • The player must register at his or her age or grade.
  • A request to play up must be made to the program supervisor.
  • The player must attend the evaluation day for the sport and must attend at the time designated for the requested league/level (i.e. if a player should be playing in the Mustang league but wants to play in the Bronco league, player must attend the Bronco player evaluation).

Request a Specific Team

No, due to the nature of the program, we cannot accept any other coach, player, or carpool requests. However, one mutual friendship request will be honored for players in an instructional league, Pinto (8U) baseball, or grade 1 and 2 soccer. A park district request form must be used for these requests and the guidelines listed on the form must be followed. These forms are available at Simkus Recreation Center and on csparks.org. Request deadlines are the same as registration deadlines (not early bird).
