Kathy Chuckas - Coach

Kathy has been involved in coaching youth sports for the past 30 years.  She believes strongly that it is her responsiblity to not only teach the fundamentals of the game, but to develop leadership skills and to empower all young girls to find their voice.  She has successfully coached at several area grade schools including the Academy of the Sacred Heart, Baker Demonstration and Pope John XXIII as well as the past three years with a local AAU travel team.  In each of her experiences, Kathy not only helped to develop a winning team but more importantly helped the girls enhance their self-esteem and leadership skills both on and off the court.  In addition to coaching, Kathy is the owner of Kids Playing Camp on Chicago’s northside and the founder of Girls in the Game.
