Chicago EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Ryan McLaughlin

Ryan McLaughlin is a PE teacher in Western Springs, IL. He has been at Field Park school since 2001. He is also the president and owner of Blue Moose Sports Camp. 

When Ryan heard about Dream Chasers Organization he was very impressed with the message it sent to the children involved. The idea of “chasing dreams” in your life made perfect sense for young athletes, especially in a time where children and being turned away from sports because of the pressure of travel sports at a younger age. Society is turning some potentially great athletes away because they don’t have the confidence they need to excel at a younger age. Dream Chasers helps children of all abilities to achieve their goals and chase their dreams. Every child has their own unique skill set, Dream Chasers will help improve those skills in a fun and exciting way. It is more than fitness, it is confidence and self respect that will allow these boys to move through any obstacle that they encounter in life.

Ryan currently lives in Woodridge with his wife, Nicole, 4 children, Connor, Abby, Carter and Patrick, and dog Burley. He is excited to bring X2F to the Chicago area and start helping children chase and realize their dreams.
