Chicago Westside Police and Youth Sports Conference

The purpose of Chicago Westside Police and Youth Sports Conference is to establish the first "all westside" police and youth sports conference in Chicago's history to energize urban baseball and other athletic programs such as basketball, archery, and in 2020, fencing and volleyball. 

It's purpose is also to promote safe activities for children and their families in high-crime, under-resourced areas.

The most unique feature of the conference is it's "Full Court Press Initiative" that combines the unified efforts of local police, churches, and community organizations to promote positive, transforming change. Boys and girls can learn about leadership, accountability, organization, preparation, conflict resolution and teamwork in a tangible and practical way. With this same logic, adults who take on the role of coach and mentor practice the concepts of collaboration. The hope is as all parties work together successfully in a project like this, the same concept can be applied to positively address inequality, poverty and gun violence. 

In addition to quality athletic instruction, areas highlighted include health and wellness, education, mentoring and athletic excellence.

This initiative is about much more than offering free sports, it is a catalyst for transformation on the Westside.

And of course, the conference wants to get the community together and have some fun!
