A note from coach Rigby:

Hello Flames Nation,

I just wanted to send you a quick note saying how excited I am to be leading the women's soccer program here at UIC. It's only been a couple months but our support staff and athletic department have been working hard and we are starting to build our team's identity. We are already generating a buzz about the program within the campus, community, region and national scene.

Our UIC women's soccer peam will play Division I soccer in the Horizon League, beginning play in the fall of 2014. We will play our home games at Flames Field. Designed and build specifically for men's and women's soccer, the natural grass field sits on the south end of the UIC campus, behind the Physical Education Building. The soccer complex features a regulation-size field, permanent bleacher seating for 1,000 fans, a concession stand, an electronic scoreboard, a public address system and press box as well as a spectacular view of downtown Chicago and its beautiful skyline.

We are looking for talented student-athletes who wants to be in a different environment. An environment that has amazing academic programs, awarding winning faculty and the finest research and academic facilities.

We are looking for student-athletes who are looking to play in an amazing soccer conference, train and compete in UIC's Athletic Center and on our Athletic Fields. Finally, we are looking for a student athletes who want to attend a University in the nation's third-largest city. UIC is located just one mile west of the downtown area.

Whether you are looking to get ahead professionally with the numerous internships and network opportunities with any of the city's major corporation, or mix in socially with an endless list of things to see and do, CHICAGO and the University of Illinois at Chicago is the place to be.



I look forward to hearing from you.
