About Nobel Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the spring of 2011.
- Located in the Humboldt Park neighborhood in Chicago and has 843 students.
- 88% of the school population is hispanic. 97% come from low-income households.
- Nobel is in Humboldt Park, a neighborhood that sees frequent gang-related activity. There is a beautiful turf field across the street from the school, but the Work to Play team often practices inside, even when the weather is beautiful, because of violence in the neighborhood.
- Nobel has a HUGE roster of Team Captains (in orange jerseys above). The Captains lead the younger players through a rigorous set of exercises at the start of each practice.
