    A win on kickoff day!!!

    Spectacular Way to kick-off the season. Both of our teams brought home the "W" to start off the season right.

    Boys 2007 Team won 8-2

    These teams have shown a great amount of dedication and teamwork on and off the field. We do not stop here, we have to keep practicing to keep improving. Good luck to both teams in your upcoming matches.

    Here comes Midwest United FC - Chicago

    We are finally ready to kick off our first season!!! After a lot of hard work and runarounds, everything seems to be set. Midwest is starting with 2 teams this season, our 2009 Girls team that will be playing in IWSL and our 2007 Boys team that will be playing in YSSL. 

    This wasn't easy and would've been impossible with all the help including Coach Antonio Chirinos and Martin Rafacz for our 2009 Girls Team. Our 2007 Boys team had a huge help from Sylvia and Carolyn. Cannot forget to mention our team in Michigan that laid the stepping stones for us and led the way. Thank you Josh, Rebecca and Jesse to name a few. To have a successful club, there is no doubt you need a great team in the field and out and I am happy to say that we have that. 

    Our hard work on paper and screens is almost over, now its time to show it on the pitch. Good luck to our teams and we hope for a great first season.
