GSC and LLSA Join Forces
New Relationship between Two Glenview Soccer Organizations
Little Legends Soccer Academy (LLSA), was founded in 2009 by Tony Youhanna and George Solomos. Their goal was to introduce coaching in a way that's never been seen before in the North Shore area and a curriculum younger players (ages 2 to 8 years old) can benefit from by developing player confidence, discipline, character, skill and team play in an exciting , fun environment.
The Academy has gone from a single location in Glenview, Illinois to multiple locations that offer youngsters a chance to grow in soccer with its innovative, fun and proven youth soccer drills and games. Little Legends Soccer Academy offers clinics year round in Glenview, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Northbrook/Deerfield, and Wilmette.
Glenview Soccer Club is a competitive, traveling soccer organization that has trained 8 to 18 year old boys and girls for over 30 years. They offer a competitive environment, focusing on the development of technical proficiency, tactical understanding and the physical well-being of their players in a constructive atmosphere. Development of individual skills, teamwork and sportsmanship are emphasized.
By joining forces Little Legends will serve as a feeder program to the Glenview Soccer Club. For the first time this spring Little Legends offered a 6v6 Premier League for their 7-8 year old players. All players received jerseys and trophies at the end of the season. It proved to be a fun experience for all participants and a great springboard for players who would love to continue on to the Glenview Soccer Club.
“Having been around the Chicagoland soccer scene for 25 years – as a player, coach and now founder of Little Legends – I’ve seen clubs of every possible stripe. For my Little Legends players, I believe their best next step is Glenview Soccer Club. GSC offers the perfect balance of top flight player development and competitive league play in a supportive, community-based club environment that values every player and every family in the club. The combination of those attributes in one soccer club is very rare," - Director Tony Youhanna
“We are delighted to formalize our already strong relationship with Tony and his Little Legends program. At Little Legends, we know his players are receiving a strong technical foundation that is critical to becoming well-rounded and high-performing soccer players. At Glenview Soccer Club, we’ll continue to build on that foundation to help each player reach his/her full potential.” - President Tom Meier
"We are so pleased with this partnership. It will be great for the community
and for the future of youth soccer"
