About Bateman Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the fall of 2013.
- Located in the West Garfield Park neighborhood in Chicago and has 484 students.
- 98% of the school population is African American. 93% come from low-income households.
- Beidler Bulls are great leaders! This winter every soccer player on the team got to be a coach for a practice. They led an entire practice and even got to wear a whistle.
- Beidler’s players are known for making up their own games and variations of Urban Initiatives classics. Instead of Star Wars (a Work to Play staple) the Bulls frequently play Square Wars. We’d list the rules, but they are pretty complicated.
