Blanketed in wall-to-wall trampolines, Sky High Sports delights barefoot fun-seekers with springy terrain and an exclusive court for jumpers 8 and younger. Guests can hone front flips, back flips, and belly flops during intense free-bounce sessions. Each trampoline comes equipped with a specially designed spring-loaded frame and thick, 2-inch safety pads that grant patrons a landing cushier than a corner office at a marshmallow factory. Stuffed with blocks of spongy, body-molding material, a foam pit dares treasure-seekers to fling themselves in or scour its depths for the lost contents of bygone pockets. Pintsize aerialist posses can safely practice their synchronized Salchows on 360 degrees of trampoline walls while court supervisors watch from the sidelines and award hard-earned praise with oversize scorecards. Sky High also offers AIRobics fitness classes and monthly dodge-ball tournaments to help jumpers explore the outermost stratospheres of trampoline possibilities.

Overlooking the rolling fairways of Tam O'Shanter Golf Course, The Howard Street Inn serves up tasty plates of pub fare and helpings of crisply televised sports. Tongues waltz with morsels of deli and grilled sandwiches, a dozen different Angus burgers, pizza, and seafood during Friday's fish fry. Domestic and imported drafts, as well as specialty cocktails and bottled wines, wash down bitter memories of second-place finishes in the soapbox derby. A covered patio grants sweeping views of the links, while 15 flat-screen TVs afford unparalleled views of live games from NFL, MLB, and NCAA packages.

Chicagoland Baseball Academy's 5,000-square-foot training facility reverberates with the clink of balls ricocheting off aluminum bats, the pop of pitches hurtling into practice nets, and the cries of ?Got it!? from fielders communicating a pop fly. Owned by longtime baseball trainer and high-school head coach Bill Rosencrans, the Academy helps players improve their games through lessons that isolate essential skills such as power throwing and executing double plays. To ensure each athlete plays to his or her full potential, classes also focus on regular core training, using ropes, medicine balls, and plyometrics to keep bodies in top shape.

Chicago Bears legend Gale Sayers never lets up. Having racked up countless accolades in his football career, including enshrinement in the NFL Hall of Fame and making grown men cry with biopic Brian's Song, he could have just retired. But after his running back days, Sayers became a computer entrepreneur and funneled his success into founding the Gale Sayers Center. With a mission of motivation, education, and inspiration, the organization strives to modernize underfunded schools with the financial support and technology that help boost academic results. The center offers after-school and public speaking programs to prepare students for college and careers, and mentoring and motivating sessions with local leaders to encourage youth to aim high.
