The Chicago chapter is a division of the youth football league Snoop established in California in 2004. It's aimed at decreasing youth violence in the area.

The season opens in August with six unlimited weight chapters. They will service Humboldt Park, Pilsen, Bridgeport, Cabrini Green, and the west and south sides of the city.
