  • 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.

  • JCC Chicago - Mayer Kaplan JCC in Skokie
    Started in 2005 by four-time Olympic gold medalist Lenny Krayzelburg, this aquatic academy offers a learn-to-swim program for children of all ages. In their nearly 10 years in operation, Krayzelburg and crew have taught thousands of children how to be safe, proficient swimmers. During group classes, private lessons, and parent-tot sessions, the team uses a seven-level SwimRight curriculum to build proper form. The approach starts with helping kids get into the water and assisting them during back floats and basic drills. As students progress through the program, they learn to master the freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. Advancement to a new level is marked with color-coded swim caps.

    Established: 1959 Staff Size: 15+ people Handicap Accessible: Yes Parking: Street parking Most Popular Attraction/Offering: The ice rink Recommended Age Group: All ages Q&A with the Marketing Manager What is one fun, unusual fact about your business? Watts is the North Shore’s premier outdoor refrigerated ice rink open from late November through early March. During the off-season, a variety of recreation programs are held in the center’s two program rooms and outside at Watts Park. Each day, Glencoe Park District staffers serve residents of all ages at Watts Center, many of whom have been enjoying facility for generations. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Long before Watts Center was constructed and the outdoor artificial ice rinks were installed, Glencoe residents still enjoyed outdoor ice skating during the winter months. In the 1950s and 1960s, the park district flooded a natural ice rink in the park near Central School at Park and Greenwood. Today, the professional-grade refrigerated rinks at Watts Center offer a smooth skating surface during the winter months.

Our incentive programs emphasize and reward effort, teamwork, heart, etc. We have special relationships with local, collegiate, and professional women's teams that offer our camps the opportunity for in-camp clinics and professional sports outings. As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected? Our staff training is pretty intense, to the extent that we role play worst-case scenarios. We practice adjusting to different circumstances, including quick transitions from outside to inside, should we encounter extreme weather. What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of? Our impact both on the fields and courts and off—our program emphasizes growth as an athlete as [much as] it does growth as a person. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? We are proud of the relationships we develop and maintain through the years with our camp families. Throughout these years, we have worked hard to create a customized teaching technique and unique understanding of how young girls best learn and thrive. The results are a program and environment that effectively foster their love for sports and fitness to last a lifetime. This is our passion. This is our mission.
