Chicago Indoor League was founded by two très cool French guys with a passion for athletics. Pascal and Philippe met while coaching soccer at the Lycée Français de Chicago. They both soon realized that the school's new facilities on the north side of the city offered a unique opportunity for recreational sports, and Chicago Indoor League was born.
The Lycée Français de Chicago (LFC) believes in the enhancement of diversity when it comes to culture, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation and physical ability. The Lincoln Square neighborhood is always expanding, and Chicago Indoor League in collaboration with the LFC strives to contribute to this dynamic community by offering the opportunity to play recreational sports inside the brand-new facility of the Lycée. The goal of the LFC is for every child to become an ambassador of the world.
Philippe Audasso is the Athletic Director of the LFC Flames, managing a diverse program of competitive sports throughout the school year. Under his leadership, the middle-school and high school teams have achieved great results every year in their respective championships, playing against some of the best private schools in the Chicago area. Philippe also created the popular Oui Run 5k race in the Lycée’s Ravenswood neighborhood, benefiting local charities.
Pascal Bedrossian is a former professional footballer who played in France’s Ligue 1 before coming to the United States to play for the Chicago Fire (MLS). After retiring from professional play, he coached the Chicago Fire Academy. Pascal is now the Assistant to the Dean of Students at the LFC, and brings his extensive coaching and playing experience to the Flames Sports program.
