Dedicated to Improving Childhood

 Development Through SPORTS

Our motto

About us


Playpen Sports Academy was started on the concept of reimagining what youth sports can be and the role it can play in a child's overall development. After working a few seasons as the director of local Chicago soccer club, Playpen Sports Academy Founder, Chris Nagel decided to start his own toddlers program with a stronger emphasis on child development in addition to the standard sport specific curriculum.
