Youth Basketball

Basketball Grades 1-8

New Format!

House League Basketball is back, but it may look a little different this year! Due to COVID-19, Glencoe Park District is implementing a number of changes to ensure playing basketball is fun and safe for all.

This season, our focus will be on individual skill development. Saturday game play will be limited to scrimmaging among small player pods. Spectators will not be allowed in the gym during any clinics or scrimmages. Limited spots are available for each grade and if minimum numbers are not met, we will combine grades. Masks are required for all patrons in the facility except during water breaks. Clinics will not be held 11/12, 11/25, and 11/26. If COVID-19 restrictions prevent in-person programs, clinics will be canceled and refunds will be issued. 

 

Preseason Basketball Clinics

(November-December)

Coaches will only work on individual-based skills throughout this 45-minute clinic. No scrimmage will be allowed and classes will be broken down into small groups to focus on certain skills. 
Safety: All participants and coaches must wear masks at all times when in the facility, even when practicing. They can remove the mask while drinking water or eating a snack. No spectators will be allowed into the gym before, during, or after the clinic. Classes will not be held 11/25 and 11/26. *If minimum numbers are not met, we will combine grades.

    Skills, Drills, and Scrimmages 

    (January-March)

    PODS will be made up of 12-15 players. Players will only practice and scrimmage with the players assigned to their pods. No cross-pod games will be allowed. Current Covid-19 sports guidelines only allow inter-squad scrimmages for basketball. *If minimum numbers are not met, we will combine grades. Scrimmages will be inter-squad scrimmages. Coaches will use the first 15-20 minutes running warm-ups and drills followed by a  scrimmage. Parents will be required to fill out a scrimmaging waiver before the first Saturday.  Coaches will mix and match players each week into two teams and will facilitate the scrimmages. There will be no volunteer coaches this year. Safety All participants and coaches must wear masks at all times when in the facility, even when scrimmaging. They can remove the mask while drinking water or eating a snack. No spectators will be allowed into the gym before, during, or after the games. We will use a carline for pick-up and drop-off on Saturdays.  If COVID-19 restrictions prevent scrimmages, program will change to individual skills-based clinic and refunds will not be issued.

    Please note, we plan to add Grades 7-8 Weekday Scrimmages if there is enough interest and enrollment for that age group. Scrimmages may be held on Friday Evenings or Saturdays after Grades 5-6.
