About Galaxy

club overview

Galaxy Soccer Club is committed to providing the best soccer educators and programs to prepare players for the highest level of desired play whether it is high school, college, Olympic Development Program (ODP) or professional soccer. Our emphasis is on long-term player growth. Galaxy Soccer Club players have a solid foundation upon which they can improve and develop on a team that is appropriate for each individual player.

The Galaxy Soccer Club, originally established in 1998 as a parent-coached organization, is dedicated to creating a positive soccer experience for athletes in the greater Naperville area. The prevailing focus of the Club was to provide the highest quality soccer education for the developing soccer athlete.

In 2004, the Club hired Brett Strang as their full-time Director of Coaching, responsible for all aspects of player and program development. Galaxy Soccer evolved into a club that utilizes nationally licensed professional coaches. Our coaches focus on the educational and technical development of our players to ensure competency of the individual skills and small group play that are essential to the game of soccer.
