U13 Wolves win Regional Championship

on .

U13Wolves RegionIIChampsFrom June 24th to 29th, in Westfield, Indiana, the U13 Wolves, coached by Sam Cheaib, achieved a perfect balance of technique, tactics, grit, cohesion, and joy and now find themselves one of four U13 boys teams heading to Frisco, Texas, to compete for a 2016 US Youth Soccer National Championship (July 26th - 30th).

At the Region II Championships, the U13 Wolves earned solid pool play victories over SC Waukesha Impact, Sporting Saint Croix, and Indy Premier, leading them into what proved to be a thrilling semifinal match against Chicago Fire Academy. Down 0-2 to Fire at half, the boys, with the help of their coaches, found a way to shift the momentum and work themselves back into the match with passion and play of the highest quality, ultimately resulting in a 3-2 victory and a spot in the finals.

In the finals, the Wolves faced a skilled Cincinnati United Premier team they lost to (0-1) and drew with (0-0) in the fall and spring, respectively. Once again, the match-up revealed itself to be an even one,  with both teams threatening to score at various points throughout the game, but an early goal off a set piece starting just outside the CUP box was the only one the Wolves would need to win (1-0) and become Region II Champions.

As their now-extended season moves toward its finale in Texas, the boys are playing their best soccer and having fun doing it. A National Championship is in sight, and they are looking forward to doing their best to give the Michigan Wolves and Hawks another star.

2016 ECNL National Finalists

on .

Congratulations to the U18 Michigan Hawks ECNL 2016 ECNL National Finalists!!

I would like to thank the '98 Michigan Hawks ECNL players for their tremendous contributions to the club over the years.  This team is everything we want a Hawks' team to be.   They work hard, they play great soccer, they laugh a lot and they are great kids on and off the field.  

Thanks also to all of their parents for their support and trust throughout the years.  When a team gets to their first National Championship game at U18, it means that the parents have had to trust in our process, coaches and club in the "lean" years.  Thanks most of all for letting us get to know and work with your families.

We wish everyone all the best in college and know that we will always be here if you need anything.


Doug Landefeld
Director of Coaching, Michigan Hawks
