About Indiana Fire Juniors

Indiana Fire Juniors - A Complete Soccer Experience

The Indiana Fire Juniors is one of the largest, most comprehensive soccer clubs in the area. Whether you're a 4-year-old who's learning to kick, a 12-year-old who wants to master his skills, a high school junior who wants to play in college or an adult who still loves to play the game, the Indiana Fire Juniors has a place for you.

The Indiana Fire Juniors was formed in May 2014, when Carmel United Soccer Club and Westfield Youth Soccer Club merged into one. Both clubs brought their unique strengths to the new entity. Carmel United Soccer boasted the elite Developmental Academy for boys and the Elite Clubs National League for Girls. Westfield Youth Soccer was focused on the community, reaching out to soccer players in Westfield and the surrounding areas.

Our 2014 merger coincided with the opening of the Grand Park Sports Campus, perhaps the most impressive athletic complex in the Midwest. With seven outdoor turf fields, 24 full-sized tournament outdoor grass fields and three full-sized indoor fields, Grand Park is the sports destination for soccer players.

We also benefit from our partnership with Major League Soccer’s Chicago FireImage result for chicago fire soccer. The Chicago Fire leadership has been instrumental in the growth of the Indiana Fire Juniors, providing leadership and coaching enrichment.

The Indiana Fire Juniors is committed to offering a soccer experience for every player, regardless of age, ability or future aspirations:

  • Westfield Youth Soccer Association is our recreational soccer program. We have a fall and a spring season, with leagues for children from ages 4-19 (must be in high school.) The focus is on development and fun above all else. We also have an adult league that players in the spring, summer and fall.
  • The Youth Academy is the first competitive experience for soccer players ages 7 to 10. Our Youth Academy begins in a player pool format and gives younger players a chance to hone their soccer skills and learn new ones under the tutelage of trained coaches.
  • Our Travel program is for competitive players ages 10 to 19 (must be in high school). All players try out in early June, with training and competition beginning in August. Travel is usually within the state and surrounding states at the younger ages, while their older counterparts may travel across the country for showcases and special events.
  • Our Developmental Academy (boys) and ECNL program (girls) is an invitation-only league for players at the highest levels.

The Indiana Fire Juniors continues to grow at Grand Park. We are dedicated to providing a stellar soccer experience to all players as they grow in the game we all love.
