2018 Fees (estimated)
$500/season (fee does not include uniform cost, which is approximately $125.)
Wolfpack season runs from October through February. Most teams play 20-30 games depending on coaches discretion and skill level of team. Games are primarily on Friday, Saturday or Sunday; each team plays approximately 8 home games at the Downers Grove Recreation Center. Other games consist of away games, league games, and tournaments.
Teams typically practice for 90 minutes, two evenings per week in the Downers Grove area through the duration of the season. Practice schedules and gym locations are assigned to each team at the beginning of the season. Each team receives additional training sessions with professional basketball instructor, Greg Ktitsou (Breakaway Basketball) as well as periodic instruction from high school coaches.
Wolfpack fields 4th grade through 8th grade boys and girls teams as well as a part-time 3rd grade boys team. Teams are formed based on tryout participation and skill level; at most grade levels, A and B teams may be formed.
Held in August, all tryouts are conducted by Breakaway Basketball coaches. Several independent evaluators attend each tryout to assess skill level and rank each player.
