About Kozminski Academy
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the spring of 2014.
- Located in the Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago and has 360 students.
- 96% of the school population is African American. 96% come from low-income households.
- At the start of every soccer practice, Kozminski’s Team Captains lead the team through extensive stretching exercises and get the team prepared. Only after the Captains have finished do the coaches start instruction.
- Before practice all of the soccer students meet in the computer lab to have a team meeting before they head to the gym. The coaches talk about the skills the team will focus on during practice and quiz the students on the health and character topics for the week.
