As many know, I am the founder of the Homeschool Youth Soccer League
(HYSL). I have been approached by a gentleman from Chicago Fire, the
professional soccer league right here in Chicago (
http://www.chicago-fire.com/) about a wonderful opportunity for the soccer
enthusiasts among us. This offer, I putting out to not only the HYSLeague
members, but to the homeschooling community at large because I am certain
that there are several of us out there who would love to participate in
this wonderful opportunity.
Wednesday, October 3rd Chicago Fire celebrate their 15th year anniversary.
With many activities, and a game that evening, they have offered to sell
tickets to a large group of us at a discounted price. If we have at least
100 people interested purchasing tickets at $14 per person, we would also
be given the opportunity to play on their field before the game! They are
also offering a parking pre-purchase price of $12 (over reg. $15). The time
I was given was 3:00pm for this date, but will verify because I see the
game is at 7p. (It could be that we are invited by 3pm to the festivities
going on that day, and will have our pre-game play on the field during this
I’m just, first, putting feelers out there to see if we can even come close
to 100 people. If this seems to be something of interest, and we would have
100 to take advantage of this opportunity, then I would move forward to
finalize plans with Chicago Fire.
If you think your family would like to participate, could you please email
me asap: firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know how many tickets you’d
purchase for this event?

Home School Village Enrichment (HSVE) Co-op is committed to providing families with a high quality, low cost enrichment program that compliments the home schooling experience and provides a safe and nurturing environment for children and their families to grow in learning and fellowship with other Christian home schoolers.
We offer classes for children in preschool through JR. High.
Times and Location:
We will be meeting on Fridays, from 9:20-2:10, at the Village Church of Bartlett for 28 weeks during the 2012-2013 school year.
Tuition & Registration Fee:
Our tuition is $270 per child for the year. Tuition is to be paid the first week of each month from September through May ($30/student/ month, which is just under $10/week).
There is also a $10 registration fee due with your completed registration forms which will cover the cost of your child’s t-shirt. All students will be required to wear this shirt with their name on it each week to classes.
Extra Class Fees:
Some of our classes also have an extra fee in addition to the tuition. Extra fees will be paid in two installments. Half of your child’s fees will be due with your registration and the other half will be due in January.
You can see a full list of our classes by going to the MORE section and clicking on FILES. Then choose “2012-2013 Class descriptions”.
We are committed to keeping our class sizes small to ensure optimal learning opportunities for all the students. Class sizes will range from 6 to 12 students, depending on the class.
Classes are filled on a first come first serve basis.
Once a class is filled, subsequent enrollments will be placed on a waiting list.
The volunteer time commitment will be one week on, two weeks off, or about 9 weeks out of 28 unless you are teaching a class. If you would like to help more or less than this, arrangements can be made on an individual basis (i.e. clean up help from 2-2:20 each week, fundraising coordination and processing from home, paying another mom to cover your volunteer time at $10/day, etc.). You will be contacted after your registration has been processed so we can find a volunteer position that best fits your time and talents. Childcare is provided free of charge for teachers and volunteers.
