ABOUT

The Concept – Our facility is a concept building, combining 2 beautiful tile Futsal courts and a turf SAQ (speed, agility, quickness) area with the latest equipment and top staffing to create a unique training experience for players and teams. We are committed to creating an environment where players fall in love with the game of soccer by playing futsal, a known skill developer in its own right, and also by offering training in a way that most club teams don't have time, equipment or expertise in. We partner with clubs to build more athletic, technical, confident and happy players!

The flagship facility in Bolingbrook - 25,000 square feet of clean space, with four restrooms, a quiet room, an entertainment room, a party room and team rooms! Comments from our patrons have been along the lines of "Bright!", Open and airy", "Clean!", "Great atmosphere!", "Great place to hang out with other soccer enthusiasts!"

Mission Statement

Step Ahead Sports is committed in creating a fun and energetic indoor sports facility environment that focuses on the safety and satisfaction for our community. Step Ahead Sports will take ownership in making an uncompromising experience of the highest quality of development and exposure through sport for all athletes.
