Inner City Youth Athletics (ICYA) offers football skills camps, combines, off-season leagues and tournaments to inner city athletes in Chicago.  We provide a positive learning environment whose mentors / coaches are from the same community as the kids participating.  It is far more than football at ICYA.  Through our programs the athletes are also provided mentorship, positive role models, team building skills and access to information and assistance with furthering their education - with the ultimate goal of a college education for every child who is part of the ICYA family.   

We are currently in the process of planning the off-season league.  During that time up to 20 teams of athletes will participate in twice per week games and trraining.  The will occur at a time when the Chicago weather prohibits outdoor play and will require indoor facilities.  In addition, we provide practice tops and bottoms for each participant.  At the culmination of the league season we host a tournament, at which the winner will be awarded a trophy.  

The majority of our participants are young men from the inner city who do not have access to funding for extra curricular activities. In order to keep our program affordable we request donations, sponsorships of athletes, sponsorship of teams and sponsorship of programming costs.   Even a small donation today will help us to help another kid.

Please help us help the kids - donate today to Inner City Youth Athletics (ICYA), a division of EMH Events.
