  • Diamond Mines Basketball
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We stand out because kids learn in a warm nurturing environment where mistakes are encouraged because they are encouraged to be innovative on the court. We use basketball to teach kids to find success not only in sports but in life. Poor grades = no court time. Poor behavior = no court time. Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well? We welcome boys and girls ages 5 -14. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I started DMB because after watching our 6 year old go through a few programs I realized most coaches don't really develop kids or teach the game properly. Kids come away unprepared for the next level. Having been a high school coach I know what they really need to work on to be ready for anything What do you love most about your job? What I love most is when a child "gets it" when the light comes on and they clearly understand their own abilities and how to apply them. I love hearing kids laugh plus I spend my time teaching the best game in the world, basketball, to great kids.

  • WhirlyBall
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: WhirlyBall facet_type_id: 2dcb7000-5f37-1032-b5be-27b22b4e5e77 html_text: |- Sam Elias knows that being cooped up during long winter days can make people stir-crazy. So in 1993, after moving from Florida, land of palm trees and beaches, to Chicago, land of frigid winds and gray slush, he founded WhirlyBall as a way for people to release pent-up energy even as snow was falling outside. During each competitive WhirlyBall game, which combines aspects of basketball, hockey, and jai alai, players zoom across an indoor 50'x80' court in motorized cars called WhirlyBugs. They wield plastic scoops to toss a wiffle ball back and forth to their teammates before throwing the ball through an elevated goal. Refs keep watch during the games, eliminating score arguments that would otherwise end in sunrise duels. To fuel up for a bout, players nibble teriyaki chicken satay, gourmet pizzas, and prime rib, and swig draft beers, which vary by location. All three WhirlyBall spots boast off-court diversions such as video games, pool tables, foosball, and air hockey. The Vernon Hills location hosts an indoor rock-climbing wall, and both the Chicago and Vernon Hills locations invite guests into multilevel Lasertron laser-tag arenas, which fill with fog and flashing lights as combatants duck, aim, and invoke Geneva Convention protocols regarding armed conflict.
