We are only 4 days prior to our start of our event that starts this Friday August 24th so please read carefully below important updates for the weekend so we can be ready and prepared for a great weekend of soccer..
Please check your schedules one more time to make sure you have and updated schedule with all your game times..
We are again using three different facilities for our tournament this year..Polo Fields, OPD (Oak Brook Park District) and Western Springs..
We are all aware that parking is always difficult in the facilities but not as much at OPD and Western Springs. Please CAR POOL as much as possible to make it easier for everyone.
Below are very important information that please relate to all your parents about this weekends parking instructions at the Polo Fields.
In the past, all entrance at Polo fields was through the Bath and Tennis center entrance and exit through the Oak Brook library..
This year the village is NOT allowing us to enter through the Bath center so all entrance and exit to the Polo Fields will be through the library entrance on Polo Drive.
Friday will not be an issue since games are limited..
Saturday parking for all teams will be at the Christ Church of Oak Brook lot on 501 Oak Brook Road (31st street) There are 300 parking spots there so please have all your team parents park there and not the polo Fields..it is a very short walk to the fields and we will have Police assistance there all day Saturday to assist players and families with crossing the street..This will be a much easier route for everyone than trying to get in and out of the Polo fields..
Please do NOT Park at the church on Sunday...Parking there is prohibited since Sunday they have church mass..All parking on Sunday will be at the polo Fields including the library parking lot..
Please follow the instructions above and also cooperate with our parking volunteers so we can have a great weekend of soccer and make it easier for everyone involved..
We know that coaches coach multiple teams and can be running from facility to facility so for the polo Fields all coaches will have access to parking there so please check on the link below to make sure you park at the right place so you can have easier access to the game fields.
I will be sending several more emails the next couple of days to everyone including game day procedures and vendors info but wanted to clarify the parking situation first..
Looking forward to hosting everyone this coming weekend and making this tournament a great experience for everyone involved.
