FRANCO DAGATTI

DIRECTOR OF COACHING

RIVER FC 

 After moving to Chicago from his native country of Argentina coach Franco Dagatti decided to start a club that would reflect his Latin roots. We are a community oriented organization whose purpose is to develop individual and team soccer excellence. We are a group of teams, coaches, parents, board members, and soccer enthusiasts who are out for one thing. The Players!  One of the main objectives is to promote self-esteem, character, discipline, comradeship in and out the field; for the new generation of soccer players.  We are located on the North Side of Chicago and we practice at the Peterson Park and Northeastern University. We play in  competitive leagues (NISL and YSSL) as well as in local summer leagues. Our style of play can be described as Latin. We value good passing, solid ball control, possession play, creativity  and good teamwork. For more information please contact Coach Franco.
