In 1994, the Chicago White Sox launched a program to bring top-flight baseball instruction to the kids of Chicagoland. These programs were committed to helping young athletes achieve maximum success throughout all of the fundamental aspects of the game of baseball. These baseball camps became so successful that in 2001 they opened the only year-round youth player development facility in the country owned and operated by a professional team (two teams in our case). Their main location is based in the Western Suburb of Lisle and provides year-round camps, clinics, private lessons and training to thousands of children every year. They offer beginner through advanced basketball, baseball, and fastpitch softball programs for boys and girls ages 5-18. Year-round programs are available at their satellite locations in Lisle, LaGrange, Glen Ellyn, and Schereville, IN. as well as the Orland Park Sports Complex. The Bulls/Sox Academy utilizes the teaching philosophies from the two professional teams to develop training methods specifically designed for the boys and girls who participate in the programming. Their professional coaching staff of former collegiate, professional players and coaches has learned directly from the Chicago Bulls and White Sox coaching staff. The Academy has earned a reputation as the Mecca for the beginning, intermediate and high level training in baseball, fastpitch and basketball with the latest equipment and training techniques.
