Frequently Asked Questions

Volunteer coaches lead practices (Grades 3-6) and Saturday games (Grades 1-6). The basketball program requires a lot of energy from a thoughtful, creative, concerned group of volunteer coaches comprised of parents and other adults who love sports and instructing children. Effective coaches fully support a positive youth sports philosophy in their attitude and behavior at practice, games, and events. You help the players learn skills, discuss fair play, and most of all, have fun. Look at coaching as an opportunity not only to teach sports skills but also to achieve something far more significant: helping children reach their full potential. Interested volunteer coaches should fill out a Coach Application. All volunteer coaches are required to complete a background check and attend a pre-season meeting on Thursday, December 8.

Coach Application

In the spirit of competition, the park district does not accept friendship requests.

Anyone in Grade 3 or above must attend the skill evaluation in order to accurately divide teams.

Skill evaluations (not try-outs) are run for the purpose of distributing talent as evenly as possible throughout the league. As much as we try, this is not a scientific process.

If you are unable to attend a game, contact the head coach of your team. They will provide contact information at the beginning of the season.

Your coach will contact you if a game/practice is canceled. You can also call the sports hotline at (847) 258-9050 or sign up for text/email/mobile notifications from RainOut Line.
