Welcome to Sokol Chicagoland! We are an independent unit of the American Sokol Organization whose mission is to provide fitness and community for individuals and families through physical, educational, cultural and social programs.
We are in our 62nd season of offering well-rounded gymnastics and physical education programs. Our certified instructors and assistants are dedicated to providing a fun and safe environment for participants of all ages and abilities. Fall events include track and field, Bring a Friend week, and volleyball. Winter events include boys/mens gymnastics skills day and rhythmic gymnastics for girls and women. Spring brings exhibitions, calisthenic drills, apparatus and special number competitions and the Sokol Day awards picnic for all classes.
Sokol Chicagoland operates a nine-month program September through May each year supporting physical and moral health, good citizenship and responsible patriotism, combined with continuous self-improvement. Our multi-faceted programs are designed for a lifetime. Classes begin for children in first grade and extend through adulthood into senior years.
Sokol Chicagoland, along with the Central District of American Sokol, also sponsors a G.I.J.O. artistic gymnastics team for girls who have achieved certain skill levels. The team competes regularly at AAU Gymnastics competitions. Members of the team must also be members of classes at their home gyms; currently participants represent three different Central District units.
