WINTER SEASON - LATEST UPDATES 11/5/20

  • We continue to monitor Illinois Department of Public Health  (IDPH), Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Winnebago County Health Department (WCHD) guidelines, as we prepare for our winter season, running through February 28 for 2nd-8th grade. High school players may finish our season around January 31, so they can participate in high school spring sports, scheduled to start around February 15, if high schools move ahead with that season.  If high schools resume a basketball season prior to that date, we will pro-rate our season fees and conclude the season earlier.  
  • IDPH guidelines currently identify basketball as a Level 1 sport, which only allows non-contact practices, however, they recently stopped all indoor sports in Illinois. 
  • We will resume practices as soon as the State opens up that option. Once resumed, players will be offered one or two weekly workouts complying with current rules, in place at the time.  If basketball moves to Level 2, scrimmage during practice will be allowed. Most teams will practice on one weeknight and once on the weekend when practices resume. 
  • Teams will play in tournaments during the season. 
  • TRYOUTS
    • Tryouts will be offered to individual athletes, who must reserve a spot, once we offer them a tryout. Players who our current coaches are familiar with will not need to attend a tryout. Watch for an email with information.
  • ROSTERS
    • Most rosters will be posted on November 30 or December 1. Parents will have 72 hours to register their son, or daughter. After 72 hours, we may offer the spot to another athlete, or a late fee of $30.00 will be added to the fees.  
  • FEES
    • Credit card payment plans are available through our office. We do not offer a cash payment plan.  
      • 2nd Grade Team $248.00 (4-6 Tournaments)
      • 3rd Grade Team $298.00 (4- 6 Tournaments)
      • 4th & 5th Grade Team $458.00 (6-8 Tournaments)
      • 6th-8th Grade Team $558.00 (6 -8 Tournaments)

      • If a player does not currently have a practice reversible $21.00
        • 2nd & 3rd grade teams do not need a uniform, as they play in a numbered practice reversible
  • COVID
    • We will pro-rate fees if there are tournaments and/or practices not held due to COVID, similar to the amounts listed below:
      • $25.00-$35.00 for each tournament not played
      • $10.00-$15.00 for each practice not held
        • We will guarantee 12 practices, but if practices resume in a few weeks, most teams will have many more practices than 12 during the season.
