Wolfpack Players & Parents
Though it likely will differ from previous basketball seasons, we are hopeful that we will still be able to offer a Wolfpack basketball program this fall/winter.
Like all the other surrounding feeder teams, we are strongly dependent on securing gym time from the high school in order to accommodate practices and games for our teams. We also rely on using gym space at other schools and rec centers to balance our team training needs. As most of these facilities are not currently open to the public yet, planning our season is very difficult.
Note, we are a volunteer based program, so we will follow State of Illinois guidelines for all our program decisions, to insure safety of players, families and coaches.
In response to the current gym situation, we are moving our typical August tryouts to Sat Sept 12 & 19 for Girls, and Sun Sept 13 & 20 for Boys. (Times/Place TBD) We are hoping by that time, we will better understand the status of our schools.
However, if in September, Illinois Guidelines would prevent us from conducting competitive tryouts, we would likely just invite all previous Wolfpack players to return, and would then partner with Breakaway Basketball to begin training sessions for our individual grade teams.
Under this scenario, we would still need determine some level of skill tryout for the 4th grade level.
We will adjust our season fee as appropriate for the season needs.
