With all of the news about Coronavirus and COVID-19 going around, it is hard to know what is fact and what is just media hype.

Chicago Wheel Jam introduces people of all ages to the sport and spectacle of Wheel JAM.

We invite children, teens and adults to join our diverse and inclusive community and roll with us –

to perform, compete, stay fit or simply for the supreme fun of it. In teaching people to harness the motion of the wheel we seek to bring out each individual’s innate superstar;

to empower via the confidence that flourishes when mastering great feats;

and to foster the satisfaction and happiness derived from cooperation and teamwork.


To complement the art of wheel and for cross-training opportunities, we offer basic instruction in modern circus arts through which children and adults can find yet more creative ways to connect, perform and shine.
