The Red Stars are currently looking for host families for the 2017 season. Please complete the form below.

This is very special program for both the players and families involved. The players truly feel like they have a home away from home and the families feel like they gain another family member.

We appreciate your support and are looking forward to a winning 2016 season at Toyota Park!

    CHICAGO RED STARS HOST FAMILY PROGRAM FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

    What is expected of a host family?
    Their needs are relatively simple: a private room, access to a bathroom, space in the refrigerator, laundry, a place to park their car (if needed) and a family to cheer them on. It is our goal for a player to feel as if they have a home away from home.

    Are we allowed to host more than one player?
    Absolutely, if you have the space we would love to place teammates together. We just ask that each player have their own room.

    How long will the player(s) be staying at our home?
    Pre-season typically begins in early March so players would be arriving a week or so before the season (schedule TBD) begins. Players only participating in our reserve team program will start arriving between April and May. The actual move in date will vary from player to player depending on their situation. Ideally, the players would live with your family for the entire season unless traded or released, which will end in late August or September based on post-season play.

    Will the player(s) have a car? If not, will we be expected to drive the player(s) places?
    Many of the players have their own cars. Players that do not have cars are strategically placed in homes close to the field, public transportation or players who do have cars, so their teammates can give them rides. We do not expect host families to drive our players around.

    We would really like a player that could help our young daughter/son with their soccer skills. Is this possible?
    A player is free to help out around the home or with your children as they please. At no point should a player feel obligated or pressured to do so. That being said our players are genuinely nice people who, without asking, may offer a helping hand.

    Are we responsible for providing the player(s) with food and meals while they are staying with us?

    Players are responsible for providing and paying for their own food, but we do encourage both the families and players to have family dinners from time to time.

    What is the process for choosing a host family?
    Once you have expressed interest you will be sent a basic questionnaire. The questionnaire asks for general information about your location, home, and family. If the accommodations suit our needs, we will then set up an in-home interview between you and a representative from the Red Stars Organization.  A background check that we will provide is required for all interested families.  The final step would be matching your family with one of our players.
