Flying High Sports & Rec Center was founded over 20 years ago and in 2014 expanded to two locations. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide quality programming to even more kids across Chicagoland.

What started in 1991 with 35 students has transformed into two state-of-the-art indoor sports and recreation centers reaching nearly 1500 students every week. Our founder and owner Chris Deck launched Flying High as part of her dream to bring fitness & fun to children all across Chicagoland and her vision continues to be realized with the help of co-owner, Laura Meyer, and a crew of 100+ employees who share their dedication.

We started inspiring kids to be fit & active through gymnastics and today we offer a wide variety of competitive and recreational programming including: gymnastics, cheerleading, dance, tumbling, and martial arts. Our Hickory Hills location is home to our award-winning competitive All Star cheer and dance team, Cheer & Dance Galaxy! Additionally we’ve become a destination for birthday parties, open gyms, and special events!

Even though we’ve expanded to two locations we haven’t lost our family feel and that’s in part due to so many of our families who’ve recommend us to their friends, family, and neighbors making Flying High an extension of communities we’re surrounded by.

We strive to create meaningful experiences for every child we teach and every child who comes to our gym for a day of play. Our philosophy “Where Every Child is a Star” is practiced in everything we do as we truly believe that every child deserves to be celebrated for their unique individuality.
