From their site:
The vision for the Chicago Slackliners Association materialized through its founder, Michael Matrejek’s, passionate study of the mind and its integral association with the body. His discovery of slacklining in 2011 has provided him, and the other founding members of the CSA, with a tangible tool for fostering a sense of balance in this mind/body relationship.
As a non-profit association, the CSA’s mission is to use slacklining as a means to bring this sense of balance to an otherwise unbalanced world through its members and through community outreach. By creating a structured organization to facilitate the sports promotion and by providing a physical place to practice slacklining, we aim to cultivate a sense of community in the greater Chicagoland area where slackliners may come together and practice in a safe and supportive environment. In addition, the CSA strives to increase community awareness of the mental, spiritual and physical benefits of slacklining, as well as to continually evolve the sports application in the areas of recreation, rehabilitation, and wellness.
The Slackline community in the US has Slackline.us their partner company for the global community is the International Slackline Association.
Again the amount of selfless work they do, any community would be glad to have. For any International Slackline Access Questions or Slackline Questions period give feel free to reach out.
from their mission statement:
