IYS Expo

Ok, so this is a record (for me) four posts in one day!!!

Wanted to make sure that i mentioned that tomorrow's Illinois Youth Soccer Expo will feature a Chicago WPS Town Hall moderated by USA Today Columnist Christine Brennan. i will be joined on the panel by Chicago WPS General Manager Marcia McDermott, National Soccer Hall of Famer and long time USWNT Captain Julie Foudy, FC Indiana Goalkeeper Kristin Luckenbill and Chicago Gaels midfielder Jen Buczkowski. Kristin and Jen provide different player perspectives on the new League. Kristin is a veteran professional and Olympic gold medalist (USA 2004) who won a WUSA championship with the Carolina Courage in 2002. Jen is a local player who starred at the University of Notre Dame (playing every game during her four seasons for the Fighting Irish) and has honed her skills with her home town W-League team while hoping that a professional women's soccer league would be resurrected.

Be sure to stop by the Schaumburg Sports Center tomorrow morning to hear their perspectives on the new League and more. Kristin, Jen and other players from FC Indiana and the Gaels will also be signing autographs at the Chicago WPS booth throughout the day.
