Our Teams

We represent Benito Juarez Community Academy in interscholastic athletic soccer competitions. 

 

The only way to wear a Juarez soccer jersey is to join our team. We wear the name Juarez with pride. We have 3 full teams: Varsity, JV, and Sophomore. Our season is in the fall, however it starts in the first week of August.Contact the coach for try-out dates and times.

We are a highly competitive team. Over the last three years, we have been Sophomore City Champs, and JV city runners up and Varsity Conference Champs. We are now in the premier division for CPS soccer.  During the season, we train daily; we also have off season workouts (they have already started) and participate in summer leagues. We have over 10 boys who are playing college soccer, most have earned scholarships.

2019 In Review

2019 was a historic season for the Juarez Eagles Soccer program!  Our overall record was 11-10-1, and our conference record was 3-3.  But that is just the surface of our story. Last year, we won our conference, and as conference champions, we moved up to the Premier Division of CPS soccer. Last year, we made the CPS playoffs for the first time in 10 years, but didn't advance pass the first round of Pool Play.  This year, all of our hard work and sweat paid off. 

- We were 4th place in the Premier Conference and beat defending City Champs Washington. 

- In the City Playoffs, we advanced all the way tot he City Semi-Finals. This was highlighted by an overtime "Golden Goal" vs. Sullivan (1st knock out round), and 7 - 3 win over (previously unbeaten) Northside College Prep (Quarterfinals), and a double overtime to PK loss Washington in the City Semifinals. 

- This established us as one of the 4 best soccer teams in the City!

- We also made strong showings in the PepsiCo Showdown and have now been invited to the Windy City Ram Classic for next year.

While we are graduating 5 very talented Seniors, most of whom are taking their talents to play in college, the future looks very bright as we retain many underclassmen starters. Look for us to be City Champs in the near future!
