FC Hawks Soccer Club: Committed to creating exemplary soccer players on and off the field


Back in 2013, players were trying out for their local travel soccer clubs.  However, the players and their families were looking for something different than what was being offered.   They wanted more from their soccer club, but there just did not seem to be any alternatives. 

As the players were trying out, the parents were asking for somebody to "do something" rather than doing the same old thing.  Well, we did something.  In 2013, we started the Hawks organization with one team.  These brave players and families took a chance on a brand-new organization. 

We had no fields, no uniforms, no league, not even a name: all we had was a passion for the sport and a commitment to the personal development of players.  It seems like yesterday when we did a seven-day minicamp in which we practiced every day getting ready for a tournament in Schaumburg. The players worked hard!  Although they came from many different teams, these players formed a bond and did something amazing.  This team (that nobody had ever heard of) won a tournament in the most dramatic fashion. After a 22-penalty kick shootout, the Hawks goalie stopped a shot and it seemed like it echoed throughout the soccer community.  On that day, the Hawks were born!

Nobody could have imagined that from this one event, that the Hawks would grow from one to seven to fifteen to nineteen to twenty-two to twenty-five teams in such a short time frame.  It all started with this one group of young men. These players (and their families) will always have a special place in our hearts.  They will always be known as the "First Team." 

In 2020, the First Team will graduate from high school. As part of our thanks, we wanted to pay homage to these special young men by having this web-page that will forever be on the Hawk’s website.

 On behalf of all the Hawks, we would like to express our gratitude to them and their families. You started something very special!
