Pegasus Soccer Club
20+ Years of Travel Soccer Excellence
Pegasus Soccer Club teams have had a long history of success, from league play to tournaments to cups at the state and regional levels. Today, Pegasus offers a competitive (a.k.a. travel) soccer experience for boys and girls (ages 8 to 18) and an Academy Program for boys and girls, ages 4 to 8. The mission of Pegasus Soccer Club is to develop young players to their fullest potential and to help them understand and enjoy the game of soccer. We endeavor to promote confidence and self esteem through emphasis on individual skill development, the spirit of teamwork, and sportsmanship in a positive competitive atmosphere. Our approach is to focus on the development of each child as both a skilled soccer player and a good team player, while also striving to create positive life-long attitudes and values among our players.
For our competitive players, the soccer year has a fall season (September to November), winter session (January to March), and a spring season (April to June). Boys’ games are generally on Saturdays and girls’ games are on Sundays.

The start time may vary based on AYSO or Pegasus games. Please call the sports hotline, 847-317-2555, each Wednesday night for updates. The cost is $3 per person.
