About Chicago Youth Sports Alliance
Chicago Youth Sports Alliance is a 510(c)3 not-for-profit corporation that was founded with the goal of using athletics and fitness as a platform to improve the social and academic development of Chicago's youth. As a 100% volunteer organization, Chicago YSA provides funding, organization and support of athletic and personal development programs, with specific focus on providing opportunity for children living in under-served communities.
In a time of increasing budget cuts, The Chicago YSA works in coordination with schools and their staff to support youth sports programs for children who may not otherwise have access to such activities. We are dedicated to the promotion and encouragement of the values and lifelong skills that can be learned through sport, including hard work, perseverance, discipline, and personal fitness, teamwork, responsibility, commitment, leadership - building stronger communities and providing
a foundation for future success.
