Illinois 14U Winter League

About the Illinois 14U Winter League

The league was started by the late Rob Lindgren.  One of Rob’s goals was to create playing opportunities for athletes all year long.  Rob ran the Illinois High School Summer League, an in-house league at District Unified club(DUWP) and the 14U Winter League.  Rob left a lasting impact on the water polo community in the Chicago area.
