Healthy Initiatives Programs (HIP)


YOUTH Soccer Program

Our after-school soccer program engages approximately 300 youth each year as players, referees and coaches. The soccer program is year-round; indoor during the winter and outdoor during the summer months.

Our winter soccer program runs from October-May and games are held at Chavez Elementary School. Our summer soccer program is May-August and games are at Cornell Park

The purpose of the program is to promote, advocate and educate the youth on the importance of physical education, sportsmanship and leadership. Youth ages 6-18 years old can participate. 

The soccer program is headed by Mr. Alfonso Garcia who works as a coach in Chicago Public Schools and is a community advocate.
