The Sports Shed Ambassador Board is a dynamic group of young professionals who are passionate about creating opportunities for Chicago kids to participate in competitive sports. They typically host two to three fundraising events a year like the Annual Ugly Holiday Sweater Party, Cornhole Tournament, and Cinco De Derby. Ambassador Board members use their social and professional networks to promote the mission and events of The Sports Shed.

The Ambassador Board membership gives you the opportunity to invest in your community, develop leadership skills, and meet like-minded young professionals in Chicago. The board has two distinct teams, the Leadership Team and the Social Team.
