The Winter season runs November 1 to February 16. There are two evening practices per week, Mondays and Wednesdays 7:00-8:00pm at Montini High School and Carol Stream respectively. These practices focus on skill development with heavy emphasis on ball handling, spacing fundamentals, shooting and shot creation plus scrimmages.
The third practice per week is Sundays 8:30-9:30am at Montini High School. We will set aside two Sundays for 3-on-3 tournaments among the team participants. 3-on-3 offers a high frequency experience for developing an in-depth understanding of half-court movement, spacing, attacking and defending. With only three players, every athlete must be engaged at every moment. On offense, the athletes are either with the ball or actively moving without the ball via cuts and screens. On defense, they are guarding the ball or getting in position to help.
In addition to the three practice sessions per week, the team will compete in six (6) local shootouts: Saturdays Nov 20, Dec 4 & 11, Jan 22 & 29, Feb 12. The shootouts will include two games at a suburban location and provide an opportunity for competitive 5-on-5 play incorporating new skills and playing concepts.
There will be no practices during the Thanksgiving and Winter Holiday breaks. All the dates and times are on the Team calendar.
The fee for the Winter Team 5/6 is $1150 which includes:
- Mon/Wed/Sun practices @ Montini & Carol Stream (36)
- Sat Shootouts (6 dates, 12 games)
