Summer Olympic sports for kids around Chicago


Sailing in Chicago

The ultimate water sport is the perfect fit for those near the lake, even if your kids weren't born with a silver spoon in their mouths. The Chicago Park District offers junior sailing lessons for kids 10 and up at Northerly Island, with a promise to take your kid from "landlubber to sea lover." And you don't have to be a member of the Chicago Yacht Club to take part in its Sailing School, which is open to kids as young as 5. Little ones won't be hoisting any riggings on their own, but they will become familiar with all the sights and sounds, not to mention the feel, of sailing.
