Our Mission: BounceBack helps families in need afford the high costs of enrolling their children in competitive / in-house leagues of all types.

Children gain so much from sports. They learn to think on their feet, to work hard, to be a great student, and to work with others. They learn to be humble, even as they gain confidence. They learn passion, dedication, and the thrill of accomplishment. And they learn to test their own limits, so they can achieve even more.

We believe that all children deserve the opportunity to play any sport they put their minds to. However, the sad reality is that sports can be extremely expensive. With today’s economic realities, many families are facing tough budget decisions – and sports are often the first thing that must go.

BounceBack exists to help take some of the economic pressure off of families, so that all children have the opportunity to pursue their passion.

How We Help

BounceBack provides financial support and equipment donations to cover the fees, travel expenses and equipment purchases that a sport may require. Whether the sport is team-based or individual, BounceBack is here to help.

We focus our efforts primarily in all suburbs of Chicagoland, including Naperville (where we are founded) and surrounding areas. Families and schools who come to us for help must complete a short application to verify their needs; upon approval, we will match each family with the appropriate assistance. Remember it is very important to fill out the application 100%, we want to assist many not a few children. If you have questions before you fill out please contact us, due to applications not being filled out in its entirety you will be asked to resubmit.
