Youth Leagues

Youth Basketball Leagues (Grades 1–2)

These fun leagues give children an equal opportunity to learn and develop basketball skills, team play and sportsmanship. Kids gain experience by playing in actual games. There are no practices or individual skill training during the week. Details: On clinic night, coaches evaluate participants, put them onto teams, and give out uniforms and schedules. Coaches make every effort to balance the teams. However, the Park District reserves the right to switch players after the 1st week of play if doing so will better balance the skill levels. Special requests for team placement can not be honored. Game times vary based on the number of players/teams. Coaches are on the floor to offer instruction and to officiate. Score is kept, however, standings are not. Kids receive equal playing time by rotating into the game every two minutes. Led by Recreation Staff.

Girl’s Feeder Basketball

Designed for girls in grades 5–8 who reside within Mundelein High School District 120 boundaries, this high school preparation program provides players with the opportunity to participate in a competitive basketball league, while continuing to learn basketball skills. The feeder program teaches girls how to develop and refine those basic skills while learning the primary offensive and defensive scheme of the high school. Player eligibility is based on high school attendance boundaries: players must live within the boundaries of the high school in order to play for the feeder team.

This program differs from our other programs by having team selection through evaluations and is a competitive level of practice and games. A solid commitment from parents and players with both the practice and game schedule is necessary. Season runs November through mid-March, with 2 practices a week, 12–14 league games and 1–2 tournaments. Any questions, please contact Aaron Smith (president of feeder advisory board) at mundeleingirlsfeeder@gmail.com
