Our Regional Teams are our program’s local competitive level of travel teams. Regional level teams will play in mostly local to the Central Illinois area tournaments. This level is for the developing basketball player who strives to focus on improvement and playing against the best competition in Central Illinois. The primary goal of our Regional teams is to develop through practices, round robins, tournaments and league play. Each Regional team will have a schedule that best fits their individual team competitive level, meaning some teams may travel a little more outside of the Central Illinois area if they are more advanced. Ultimately the schedule will reflect a balance of tournaments/games that will allow our Regional teams to be competitive locally and challenged by traveling to some higher level tournaments with overnight weekend stays. By having a balanced schedule we aim to help develop our Regional players and teams to advance their level of play in the future to that of a National level team.

Rosters: All of our Regional level teams have a core roster of returning players, every team will be looking to add a handful of players to finalize rosters.

Player Fee: Player fee will be determined at the Parent Meeting following try-outs when schedule is finalized. Uniform package will be separate for new players to the program. Player fee will be due at the Team meeting following try-outs, payment options and fundraising options will be available. Player Fee is Non-Refundable.

Schedule: The schedule will be finalized following try-outs at the Team Meeting. We do our best to work with team parents/players to develop a schedule that best reflects the majority of our team players by taking into account the additional activities our team players may be involved in also.

Additional:

Regional teams will have offseason workout and program camp options, information sessions on important athlete topics for 8th-11th grades, individual opportunities, recruiting guidance/assistance and classroom sessions including film for 8th-11th grades.
