The Arlington Heights Park District and the Arlington Aces Soccer Club provide the framework for children to learn this exciting and rewarding sport while developing individual skills and learning the importance of teamwork.
The Arlington Aces Soccer Club is a program offered by the Arlington Heights Park District. The ultimate authority, like any other Park program, rests with the Park Board. The Board appoints a Soccer Advisory Committee to advise them on the soccer needs of the residents. More about the Soccer Advisory Committee
Youth Sports Philosophy
The Park District recognizes that competition in and of itself is a part of life and if placed in the proper perspective something that an individual learns from. Competition as viewed by the Park District will encourage the participants to strive to be the best they can be. Winning and losing will be deemphasized whenever possible, with the emphasis placed on participation, learning and enjoyment. In an effort to keep the recreational philosophy and to serve the greatest number of residents, athletic programs will be designed to encourage participation for the beginner and mid-level athlete. Although the Park District may offer traveling programs in certain sports in which the competition intensity increases, the overall focus should still remain on fun and learning. For certain participants their skill level and competitive needs may exceed the capabilities of the Park District program or resources and they may need to seek outside or private clubs and organizations.
