Boy's Soccer - Fall

Boys Soccer

Hello Parents,

My name is Christopher Loustaunau (Coach Chris) and I will be coaching our Junior Varsity soccer team this fall
2018.  The 5/6 grade Junior Varsity  boys soccer team will compete in the newly formed Northeast Illinois Catholic Conference.  Please introduce yourself to me sometime during the season if we have not met.  I’m very excited to continue the first part of year six of the soccer program for St. Joseph’s Catholic School.  I want to thank all of the returning players for helping to build a strong and competitive soccer program here at SJCS.   I’m excited to meet many of the new players listed on the rosters, so again welcome all newcomers to the SJS soccer program.
