Competition:

5th/6th and 7th/8th teams play in the NICC Conference and some additional teams from the area. 

JV/V teams play against homeschool teams and area private schools, most within an hour away from Gurnee.  There is some travel for the high school level to schools/groups that are a little further away as well.

Tournaments: There are 1-2 tournaments for each team, depending on level. Families are responsible for additional cost of travel and overnight stay, if applicable (high school level only - kept as minimal as possible).  Often a block of rooms may be reserved for us at a hotel, but the rooming arrangements and fees are the parent's responsibility.

Expectations: All players are expected to attend all practices and games for their team, and have a commitment to do additional conditioning at home where necessary.  You are expected to communicate with your coach if you will be missing a practice or game, or will be late.  Failure to do so will affect playing time, and negatively affects your team, so please communicate well! 

Fundraisers:  There is the opportunity to participate in fundraisers this year.  More info coming soon...
