Practices – One of the perks of being a Head Coach is you pick your practice schedule and location so you will find that information from your Head Coach.  You will not have more than 2 practices in a week.

Games – Once games start practices end, your coach might choose to have a practice every once and while to fill in gaps between games but they are not mandatory to attend.  Game schedule will be up online before the start of the practices so you will have that in advance.  Games are Monday thru Saturday.  Monday thru Friday games start at 6pm (except in the Fall Season, September thru October games start at 5:30pm).

Game Reschedule – Please make sure to check Quickscores often.  We aim to play between 12 – 14 games in a season, we have factored in make up games in the beginning of the year so on your schedule you might have up to 16 games but this saves from having to add a day here or there for rain outs.

Mission Statement

The Tinley Park Bobcats Soccer Program is to provide a well rounded soccer experience for all of its participants. We will strive to promote confidence and self-esteem through an emphasis on individual skill development, the spirit of teamwork, and sportsmanship in a positive atmosphere. We want to create a community that has a passion for the game of soccer and a lifetime of fond memories for our players and their families who participate.

Our goals to achieve this are:

  • First and foremost, we want to make soccer fun, exciting and rewarding.
  • To invest in the development of soccer skills which will enable each player to achieve their personal best while emphasizing sportsmanship and team play.
  • To remember that wins, losses and competitive successes are a by-product of our philosophy, not a specific goal.
  • To understand that we are developing far more than soccer players and that soccer is only one of life’s experiences.
  • To provide our coaches and players with the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the game through clinics and camps.
  • To provide a mentor program, provided by travel coaches and other experienced Bobcat coaches, to aid in the growth and knowledge of our recreational coaches.
  • To provide a competitive travel program for those players that want to take their game to the next level while following the Bobcat mission. This is a new change implemented by the Bobcats to allow the players in this division more touches on the ball, thus enhancing their learning experience. The Bobcats also offer growth opportunities for those who want a more competitive and in-depth experience in soccer by the means of travel teams and professional trainers for soccer.

Inappropriate Conduct

In the past few years the Bobcats have had a number of incidents where conduct has not been appropriate for our youth sporting activities. This poor conduct has been displayed by players, parents, coaches and game officials in all of our different sports. It has reached a point where this conduct can no longer be tolerated nor accepted in this organization.

As a board we have decided that it is time for the Bobcats to adopt guidelines similar to “Zero Tolerance Policies” in an effort to preserve and maintain a positive experience for all of our participants. We feel that by creating these guidelines, it will provide our members with an atmosphere that will be more desirable and rewarding for all.
