About Daley Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play Program in the fall of 2010.
- Located in the New City neighborhood in Chicago and has 661 students.
- 91% of the school population is hispanic. 99% come from low-income households.
- Daley’s team practices and scrimmages in Cornell Square Park, the site of a nighttime gang-related shootout that wounded 13 people, including a 3-year old boy last September.
- Daley’s players love an intense workout. At the beginning of practice, the whole team does squats, pushups, LOTS of planks, and runs laps. They always wrap up practice with the numbers game.
