Who We Are

A child on the west side is 6x more likely to quit sports due to costs

Who We Are

There are real problems in the city of Chicago. Luckily, we are problem solvers by nature.

The Intentional Sports campus is located at 1841 N Laramie Ave in the Austin neighborhood. Surrounding communities include Belmont Cragin, Humboldt Park, and Hermosa. We are dedicated to integrating into this community in every way possible, while also inviting suburban children and families to compete and find enjoyment alongside the West Side youth.
