Spring 2014 Basketball Leagues – Form Your Own Team

Boys & Girls Divisions, Grades 3-8

The Glenview Park District’s 6-week basketball program lets you put together your own team and play in a league that will give you an opportunity to expand on your basketball skills from the winter. Practices will be scheduled by your coach during the week. Games will be played on Friday evenings at Park Center or Attea Middle School.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are teams formed?
A parent coach will organize a team of up to 10 players and will submit a roster to the Park Center front desk or fax it to Youth Athletics Supervisor Jill Bruns at (224) 521-2561. Click here to download a copy of the roster form.

How do I register?
Each player registers on their own like all other park district programs. Every player on the coach’s roster must be registered prior to participating.

Can a player play even if he/she wasn’t asked to play on a team?
Maybe. If enough players register that were not asked to join a team, they will be combined to form a team as long as one of the parents volunteers as the coach. Each team may have a maximum of 10 players and a minimum of 7 players. Up to 6 teams allowed per each division’s age group.
