Coaching -
For the Spring /Summer of 2024 we anticipate a 15u (9th Grade) and 16u (10th Grade) team playing in this format and playing on the scheduled dates. Illinois Triple Threat Co - Founders David Milostan and Jordan Taylor will be coaching these teams. 


Team Management-

Illinois Triple Threat Club Director Matt Yarc will be managing the teams from an administrative and development standpoint. Coach Yarc has coached travel teams over his coaching career on circuits /grassroot platforms similar to UA Next. He has a great understanding of what type of player using this platform will succeed, gains exposure and will continue to develop their individual talent and use this opportunity as off-season development to go back to their High School team and make an impact the following season.


Fall Season - 

HLC- Under Armour only fields teams on the UA Next  circuit in Spring/Summer so the team will continue to play in the Fall moving towards the High School season as a Illinois Triple Threat team. The players fees for the Fall Triple Threat season will be discounted to keep the entire season off- season as affordable as possible. 


Next Steps - 

Follow Back up with Coach Yarc with any questions the player or family might have

Begin the registration process with HLC if the player/family has decided to commit to playing on the team. 


After a commitment has been made more information will be shared about pre- season team events etc that create and continue team bonding for the players, parents and coaches.
