Travel Leagues

In the Travel/House League program, players  develop offensive and defensive fundamentals while working in a team setting and competing with friends.  The programs include officiated games, trained/certified coaches, team uniforms and championship/participation awards. Practices and games are assigned a 60-90 minute time slot within the listed time period.

House Leagues

For those looking for a more competitive program, players in the Elite and Feeder Basketball program  play against teams and participate in tournaments throughout the Chicagoland area. Teams  practice 2 days a week. The day, time and location of practices vary depending on the program. Home games are played at the Rec Center of Highland Park, Northwood Jr. High, or Highland Park High School. Games are held primarily on the weekends, but there is the possibility of weeknight games.
