Our Story

Serve City Inc. was founded in 2013 in the Chicago area to provide children and youth with excellent training from coaches and instructors who care about them as athletes and as people. With that goal in mind, we are able to excel to the top, as athletes want to join our programs because we attract top-notch coaches who attract amazing young people!

Our organization offers two different types of athletic programming: Club Volleyball and Recreation Programming. Serve City partners with more than a dozen park districts across the Chicago suburbs, including Downers Grove, Glen Ellyn, St. Charles, Hoffman Estates, Geneva, Deerfield, Hinsdale, Burr Ridge and Park Ridge -- and the list is growing. We provide classes, clinics, camps and leagues in a wide range of sports, from team sports like basketball, volleyball and soccer to more non-traditional offerings like lacrosse, pickleball, ultimate frisbee, disc golf, badminton and spikeball.

Serve City also runs family-friendly club volleyball programs for girls and boys in Wheaton, West Chicago, Carol Stream, Des Plaines, Elgin and West Dundee. Our club teams are among the most affordable in the Chicago area and are led by coaches committed to training their athletes to reach their highest potential both on and off the court.

Serve City Athletics is committed to developing great athletes (which they do), but their commitment to the betterment of the communities they serve is what makes them stand out.
