Youth Basketball Leagues

Basketball leagues are offered in the summer, fall and winter. During the fall and winter Leagues, an eight week season is played on weekend mornings at the Recreation Center. Practices are held once a week at a District 58 school for one hour. During the summer season, two weeks of practice are followed by games on Wednesday nights only. Our goal is to keep players from the same school on the same team. Should enrollment and roster numbers not accommodate this, then players from different schools may be combined to form teams. Divisions are divided by grades ranging from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Check the seasonal guide for early registration dates.

Winter Registration Ends Dec. 3.

Information for all Basketball Divisions

Volunteer coaches introduce participants to the fundamentals of playing basketball through practices and weekend games. The league emphasizes proper techniques, knowledge of the rules, team strategy, participation and fun!

The Park District Youth Basketball League relies on volunteer coaches and every team must have a coach. Anyone interested in coaching should contact the Park District at 630.960.7250.

To begin the registration process, payment and a signed registration form must be submitted. Each season new teams are formed and grouped together as specified below.

Teams are created according to the following criteria:

  • School attended
  • Grade
  • Mutual friend request
  • Balance of gender
  • Roster size

*A non-mutual friend request or coach request will not be guaranteed.

In general, our goal is to keep players from the same school on the same team. Should enrollment numbers and roster maximums not accommodate this, schools may be split or combined to form a team. Team maximums are based on enrollment numbers at the time of the registration deadline. Returning players are not guaranteed the same team from season to season or year to year.

Practices are held weekly at District 58 schools. Because not every District 58 school is available for practices, some teams may practice at a neighboring school rather than the school attended by team members. Please note: A weekly practice will be scheduled for each team, but is not always guaranteed and is dependent on facility availability.

Each player must wear their league jersey to all games. Players are allowed to wear their own shorts and basketball shoes.

The league uniform consists of a solid colored jersey which will change each season. Jerseys for these leagues are included in the registration fee and will be distributed by your coach prior to your first game.
