We are very proud of our partnership with the Chicago Fire through its Soccer In The Community (SITC) outreach program. Our partnership is focused on player development and to date, we have conducted clinics for over 500 BSSL players and 35 Lions '82 players. Through the Chicago Fire camps, we have improved technical skills in a one-week camp (15 hours) for over 110 players in the last 3 years! The Chicago Fire hosted us for a HYSA night at the their game against Portland last year (2016) and this year we attended the Fire's 4-1 victory over the MLS Champion Seattle Sounders.
