CMSA Indoor Soccer has both recreational and competitive levels and is hosted at the Center on Halsted. It is sponsored by The North End, where you and your team are always welcome after your games for a free pitcher and fun times! The league strives to provide an environment of wholesome, competitive fun while developing sportsmanship and a positive social atmosphere for the players. The league has a mid-season and end of season social to get to know the other players outside of your team and make lasting relationships. We’d be happy to have you in the league!

CMSA Outdoor Soccer is a recreational random-draft league for players of all skill levels. Whether you are new to soccer or if you’ve been playing most of your life, this league is a good time and will be a great way to meet new people and play on a team in an organized league setting. Outdoor soccer is a great way to get a great cardio workout while enjoying Chicago’s lakeshore park and amazing summer weather! Outdoor soccer also hosts mid-season and end of season socials.
