Who: Full and Part-time Homeschooled Girls and Boys ages 10-18

·        5th-8th Boys Basketball is from October- January.

***NEW THIS YEAR:  NICC is now allowing 4th graders to play.  We would like to invite 4th grade girls and boys who have some basketball experience (rec league, Upward, etc) to join us.  Because we play combined grade levels, we will be playing at the 6th grade level, so we want to make sure that each player is safe when they're playing! Before registering a 4th grade player, please email Melissa @ scheduling@hrkeagles.org so that we can connect with a coach to make sure this is the right fit for your child.

High School (JV/V)  Boys and Girls Basketball: October - late Feb/early March.

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 1-1½ hours 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...
