Former instructor at the East Bank Club and mentee of the renowned Hank Haney, Gil Davis has straightened the swings of Chicago golfers for more than a decade. Gil’s playing philosophy— that establishing a solid foundation of fundamentals can prevent many bad habits and frustrations—focuses on the basics. His instruction centers on developing proper grip, posture, and alignment from the get-go while tying in the strategic skill of course management. This planning mindset—often saved until later in the student’s advancement—keeps players focused on the larger picture in order to solve course conundrums, such as sand traps and the riddles of hole-guarding trolls. Instruction takes place at the practice facilities of Marquette Park, where grass tee boxes and 9,000 square feet of putting and chipping greens re-create common course conditions for focused practice.

When the sun goes down during Summer Solstice weekend in Chicago, the bikes come out. Celebrating its 26th year in 2014, the iconic L.A.T.E. Ride sends cyclists whirring through the city beneath the glow of street lamps. But the non-competitive event also encourages participants to supply some light of their own—whether it's by decorating their bikes with festive lights or hiring packs of fireflies to follow them—with a pre-ride award ceremony recognizing the best lighting arrangements. Then, waves of riders pedal off into the night, with some not crossing the finish line until the sun begins to rise over Lake Michigan. Proceeds from the annual event benefit Friends of the Parks, an acclaimed non-profit organization that preserves and improves Chicago-area parks and forest preserves.

Founded in 2007, the Rockford Half Marathon & 10K challenges runners to take on one of two races: a 13.1-mile half marathon or a 10K. Runners of all skill levels from over 20 different states pace themselves along a stunning waterfront race course that traces the path of downtown Rockford's Rock River. Electronic chips are provided to all runners for the most accurate race timing and to let everyone channel the spirit of the bionic man. Cash prizes are awarded to the top three male and female finishers.

Chicago Indoor Sports' full-size field has enough turf to make a cow's spots turn green with envy. But that same animal would be disappointed if it took a bite. The surface is actually a carefully designed, imitation grass made of millions of tiny rubber pallets and a crushed stone base, which helps absorb shock. That last feature is key, since the indoor play area supports crowds of running athletes during competitive or casual games of soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, and ultimate frisbee. The field is also home its own youth and adult soccer leagues, such as Liga Latino Americana.

Throughout many of their services, Chicago Indoor Sports places special emphasis on children. During their SoccerTots and SoccerTouch programs, instructors use soccer as a way to build motor skills and encourage mental development. Meanwhile, an arcade and three giant inflatables give kids a break from sports.
