About

La Villita Club de Fútbol (LVCF) is a sports program for youth ages 12-16 that strives to create life changing experiences and opportunities through soccer. We believe soccer is more than just a game; it’s a tool for change, an artifact of culture, and a gateway into extraordinary opportunities to the world around us. Programs include:

  • Co-Ed Recreational Soccer which provides safe spaces for youth in Little Village to freely express and showcase their soccer passion and skills. This program consists of training exercises, free play, mini-tournaments and life-skills based conversations.
  • Men’s Training Academy for players ages 15-18 through a selective enrollment process. This initiative provides high performance soccer training designed to educate and develop aspiring soccer player of Little Village. This class will also give youth the opportunity to interact and train under former professional and college soccer players and coaches.

Our hope is that we create equal opportunity in the world of youth soccer development for players in Little Village, Chicago.
