Sprocket Sports Sponsors the Chicago Fire Foundation’s 2024 Season Kickoff Luncheon

Sprocket Sports, a leading technology platform for youth sports clubs, is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Chicago Fire Foundation’s 2024 Season Kick-Off Luncheon, taking place today at the Swissotel in Chicago. This annual fundraiser supports the foundation’s P.L.A.Y.S. Program, which enhances the academic performance and development of key social and emotional skills of elementary school students through a sports-based curriculum. Since the program’s inception in 2013, more than 334,056 hours of soccer have been played by both girls and boys in third through fifth grade. For 2024 programming, P.L.A.Y.S. will expand to a total of 60 Chicago Public Schools serving nearly 1,440 youth. The annual event also offers attendees their first opportunity to meet the entire 2024 Chicago Fire first team and coaching staff.

“With Sprocket’s deep roots in Chicago, we are excited to share in the Fire Foundation’s mission of empowering our community by uplifting the next generation through the power of sports,” said Rich Gallun, Sprocket Sports CEO. “Instilling values like goal-setting, respect and teamwork in Chicago’s youth sets a foundation for lifelong success, on and off the pitch."
