YMCA x Dreamville Chi-League, Powered by Wilson

Join the YMCA of Metro Chicago throughout August as we co-host four weekends’ worth of youth programming in conjunction with the 2022 Dreamville Chi-League, powered by Wilson. As part of Wilson's commitment to the basketball community, the organization is again partnering with Dreamville to host the annual four-week pro-am Chi-League tournament in Chicago. All tournament action will take place at the Credit Union 1 Arena on the UIC campus.

Chicago youth can get involved by participating in skills clinics, joining us for a sports-related career panel, visiting the YMCA booth at the Bud Billiken Parade, and more. All youth participants and their family member(s) will receive complimentary admission to the Chi-League tournament.
